ยป BACK TO FULL EVENT SCHEDULE

Don't confuse DANIEL JOHNSON (previously of JUDAH JOHNSON) with Daniel Johnston, Daniel Johnson's music is anything but schizophrenic and compulsive- his arrangements use all include all the tools of a modern top 40 pop song, but his songwriting has an economy of style worthy of the the masters of zen haikus, and his melodies the timelessness of a Cole Porter song. He is joined at PHONOTROPIC by HIDDEN GHOST BALLOON SHIP (featuring Trevor Naud from ZOOS OF BERLIN a band whose tight rhythms, aethereally persisent arrangements, and flawlessly static vocal inflections suggest what could have happened if David Bowie had been born in Motown. Also appearing is Detroit's turntable incinerator GRAND DAD CRUNK the dance floor ring master!
