Danielson New Free Digital EP, Knitting Factory Show Tonight, More Tour Dates, New Video


Danielson, aka Daniel Smith, has a show at the Knitting Factory tonight (Oct 31), which is actually the first tour date in support of his new digital EP Alive!, currently available as free download from the Secretly Canadian website. Also, and this is more of a personal aside, if you haven’t had the chance to check it out yet, I highly recommend the 2006 documentary Danielson: A Family Movie, which chronicles the life and times of Mr. Smith as well as the early career of his protege and former band mate, Sufjan Stevens. Even if you’re not a fan of Daniel’s music (his stuff is not for everyone), the documentary is really worth watching.
