Daniel Johnston w/Dave Cloud

Nashville Scene Critic's Pick …

Will Daniel Johnston and Dave Cloud actually meet, like, in the green room or something, when the middle-aging outsider artist-musicians share the bill at Exit/In tonight? What will they talk about? One is an international icon of and forefather of twee (a status solidified by the astounding 2006 documentary The Devil and Daniel Johnston) who praises Jesus and sings melodically rich ditties and painful songs about unrequited love, while the other is a long-loved local legend known for his unkempt Elvis Presley-worthy mutton chops and drunken, terrifically tuneless, gravel-voiced lechery delivered atop a psychedelic cocktail combo. Think of tonight’s pairing as a lo-fi Paul McCartney seen through the whimsical lens of Wes Anderson, joined by a hi-def Neil Diamond directed by Harmony Korine. Although a confounding collaboration along the lines of Johnston’s sweaty 2007 Exit/In sellout — he was backed by The Mattoid that night — seems unlikely, we’d say anything is possible.
