Jason Dove And The Magic Whip With Daniel Johnston: Hi, Who Are You?: DVD-R

Aug 31, 2008

Did I mention that Jason Dove is also a filmmaker? This hand-labeled disk was recorded by Dove on May 13, 2007 at the Ottobar in Baltimore, Maryland. Of the four songs including the classic, “True Love Will Find You in the End,” I had not heard “Worried Shoes,” for which Johnston said he stole lyrics from The Beatles. The footage is a little grainy and jerky at times, but you can’t mistake Johnston’s enthusiasm when he talks to the crowd. At one point he says, “Drugs do help,” but it’s unclear if he means psychotropic medication given his bi polar disorder, or just lighting a big fat one up before jamming. So far this is for promotional use only but it can be viewed at jasondove.com. –Kristen K (TuffNerd, www.myspace.com/tuffnerdproductions)
