Daniel Johnston Birthday Bash Tribute

Come celebrate Daniel Johnston’s life, art and musical legacy!

This special evening will start with a viewing of the film “The Devil and Daniel Johnston” into live tribute sets. We will also have Daniel’s favorite snacks and art prints displayed leading to a midnight toast in honor of his official birthday at 12AM. All artist proceeds will be donated to The SIMS Foundation based in Austin, Texas, helping musicians and their families cope with mental illness.

Performances to be announced!

Sims Foundation: SIMS Foundation provides mental health and substance use recovery services for musicians, music industry professionals, and their families to support the well-being of the music community. Live music is the heart and soul of Austin, but living as a musician can be a real challenge. Musicians and music professionals are at higher risk for mental illness and substance abuse, working under the stress of an unstable income, a skyrocketing cost of living, erratic tour schedules, distance from family and support, and constant proximity to drugs and alcohol. To succeed in our work, we have built a community of health care providers, volunteers, local business leaders, music industry professionals, and Austin music fans to amplify our efforts. Together, we provide vital services so that our music family can thrive.
