Put the name 'Daniel Johnston' into any internet search engine and you will find hundreds of pages about America's most unlikely pop phenomenon and 'outsider' visual artist. He has, since his first crudely recorded cassette was released in 1980, spent the last three decades exposing his heartrending tales of unrequited love, cosmic mishaps and existential torment to an ever growing international cult audience, and as a result has been hailed as an American original akin to blues-man Robert Johnson and country legend Hank Williams.

It wasn't long before he became the singer/songwriter of choice for the burgeoning 90's alternative/underground rock scene. At various times he has had his work championed by members of Sonic Youth, Yo La Tengo, Butthole Surfers, Half Japanese, and perhaps most notably by Nirvana frontman Kurt Cobain, who was often photographed wearing the now infamous "Hi, How Are You?" t-shirt.

In 2004, he released The Late Great Daniel Johnston: Discovered Covered, a two-disc compilation. The first disc featured artists such as Tom Waits, Beck, TV on the Radio, Jad Fair, Eels, Bright Eyes, Calvin Johnson, Death Cab for Cutie, Sparklehorse, Mercury Rev and The Flaming Lips covering songs written by Johnston. The second disc featured Johnston's original recordings of the songs. In 2009, Karen O's version of Johnston's song "Worried Shoes" appeared as the theme song of Spike Jonze's feature film Where The Wild Things Are.

Join Open Borders in welcoming a bonafide pop legend.

Open Borders is a summer-long concert series and art exhibition filling a 40,000 square foot converted Borders bookstore in Southern California.
