Neutral Milk Hotel, The Breeders, Daniel Johnston, Hollywood Bowl, September 18

 

Date: September 18, 2014breeders

Time: 8:00 pm

Some of the most weirdly endearing moments on this loaded bill occur early, so make sure to arrive in time for Daniel Johnston. The schizophrenic Austin bard has come a long way since he sold his handmade music cassettes at McDonald’s in the mid-1980s. He’s such a Texas tradition now that his songs have been covered by Tom Waits, Butthole Surfers and TV on the Radio, but no one else can duplicate Johnston’s oddly childlike takes on The Beatles, broken hearts, Captain America and punch-drunk boxers. The Breeders take a look back at 1993′s Last Splash, although one hopes leader Kim Deal also will find time for the underrated songs on more recent releases such as Mountain Battles and Fate to Fatal. Neutral Milk Hotel set aloft their evocatively trippy sea chanteys for the first time locally in eons.
