Playbill: Daniel Johnston
For fans of Johnston's music, 2006 saw Johnston release the compilation Welcome to My World and quietly begin to gig around town occasionally under the moniker Danny and The Nightmares. A garage band consisting of Waller neighbors Jason and Brigette "Nightmare", The Nightmares are as likely to trip through "The Monster Mash" or material from their 1999 release The End Is Near Again as they are any of Johnston's early material. But whatever the set list, Johnston's attendance should mark this as one of the edgier New Year's Eve parties as he warms up for a 2007 date at David Bowie's "Highline" festival in New York City. - William Michael Smith
