Daniel Johnston: The Devil Told You So

Don't say we didn't warn you. The Daniel Johnston show at Spaceland that we previously reported is officially sold out (what did you expect? It's his first show here in five years). However, there will be a limited number of tickets available (approximately 100) at the door the night of the show. Fortunately, those that didn't act on the Content's advice can still get their fix of Daniel Johnston via film.

A documentary on the life and art of Daniel Johnston has just recently been released, appropriately entitled The Devil and Daniel Johnston. The film depicts the troubled life of the struggling artist throughout different periods of his life and career. The flick has been receiving some critical acclaim, most notably for its award at the Sundance Film Festival. The Devil and Daniel Johnston is now playing in LA at the
Laemmle Sunset 5.

Also, when Johnston comes to LA next month he is going to stop by for a performance on the Henry Rollins Show that will air on IFC.

And finally, Johnston is releasing his first collection of greatest hits today (4/18) entitled Welcome To My World. The disc should be a helpful tool for fans, and for newcomers, as a solid introduction into the prolific world that is Daniel Johnston.

Check out the trailer for The Devil and Daniel Johnston below.
