One recent April evening, singer-songwriter Devendra Banhart performed a live set in the offices of SPIN Magazine. Banhart’s unique brand of folk-pop has invited comparison to both Nick Drake and Daniel Johnston, as demonstrated on his recent album, Rejoicing in the Hands. The art-school crooner played clubs like New York’s storied den of punk rock, CBGBs, before he was even old enough to be admitted as a customer; let’s see how he handled a harried crew of magazine staffers. Check out an exclusive in-house performance and interview with this unique bohemian rhapsodizer.
