* Daniel Johnston @ The Troxy

I went to see Daniel performing, i wouldn't have missed it for the world.
Jeffrey Lewis was the support act and i must say kudos to him: his music is brilliant and i only had heard of him but wasn't familiar with his work and....wow! I love it when this happens, when you can look forward to a new musician to get addicted to. I find this very rarely happens to me lately.
Daniel could barely sing, he wasn't in great shape, still he gave it his all and the respect he got back from the crowd was enormous and very touching...Until a fake blonde prick shouted at him from across the theatre:" Come on Danieeeel! Give us mooooore!" Daniel smiled and said "I'm trying.....I hope you are enjoying yourselves tonight" and the cheering from the crowd luckily booed the fake blonde prick.
I shouted at the fake blonde guy (which looked so annoyingly a product of these fashion days) to SHUT UP. I wasn't going to be in that "us", no way. I was feeling lucky already that Daniel managed to do this tour, given the obvious weakness of his body. SOME RESPECT for fuck's sake!
ah well. Nevermind. The blondie was put back into his right place when Daniel  came on stage for his encore singing "true love will find you in the end".

Shut up blondie.
