A relatively small but utterly charming celebration of renowned songwriter Daniel Johnston’s birthday held last year at the Mohawk, this event moves to a much bigger stage for its second go-round, with an impressive lineup to match. Indie heavyweights the Flaming Lips, Yo La Tengo, Built to Spill and Bob Mould head a cast that also includes locals the Black Angels and Bob Schneider. Proceeds support the Hi, How Are You Project, which seeks “to end the stigma around mental health conversations,” per the show’s promo material. — Peter Blackstock
