Daniel Smith, the frontman and creative force behind indie rock project Danielson, likes to play dress up.

This is no secret -- he and the band have sported everything from nurse costumes to police ensembles on stage over the course of their 15-plus years on the road. But the most impressive Danielson costume so far? Smith's nine-foot tall, fruit-bearing tree outfit (see right).

We're not sure if he'll be wearing this get-up on stage tomorrow night, as Danielson will be stopping through Dallas tomorrow night for a gig at the Loft, but, in his honor, we'd like to take a moment and pay homage to some of our favorite musicians who, like Smith, have at one point or another dressed up as a food item.

See some of our favorite pictures of musicians dressed as various types of food after the jump.

Keep the Dallas Observer Free... Since we started the Dallas Observer, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Dallas, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Dallas with no paywalls.
