Daniel Johnston fights off demons to play Metro

The legend of Daniel Johnston has been growing for 2 1/2 decades and yet his music still has this incredible innocence and truth about it.

Johnston’s mental illness has been the subject of countless articles, a movie and all the buzz that surrounded this guy ever since he started handing out homemade cassette tapes on the street in Texas in the 1980s.

He plays the Metro on Saturday, which should be a really extraordinary show.
