Mark Linkous of Sparklehorse



I never got to see Sparklehorse live, which I will now always regret, but I did get to see Mark Linkous play as part of the Evening with Daniel Johnston in Whelans. He was incredible and funny, trying to get the crowd to sing along with the impossibly high falsetto chorus of "Homecoming Queen". 300 hundred people with their voices cracking in a weird kind of harmony. For the encore of Daniel Johnstons set him and Mr. Linkous played a heartbreaking version of "True Love Will Find You In The End".
