Robyn Hitchcock is one of England's most enduring contemporary singer/songwriters and live performers. A surrealist poet, talented guitarist, cult artist and musician's musician, Hitchcock is among alternative rock's father figures and is the closest thing the genre has to a Bob Dylan (not coincidentally his biggest musical inspiration). Since founding the art-rock band The Soft Boys in 1976, Robyn has recorded more than 20 albums as well as starred in ‘Storefront Hitchcock’ an in concert film recorded in New York and directed by Jonathan Demme. Blending folk and psychedelia with a wry British nihilism, Robyn describes his songs as ‘paintings you can listen to’. His most recent album THE MAN UPSTAIRS is a bittersweet love letter to a vanishing world. Produced by legendary folk-rock svengali Joe Boyd (Pink Floyd, Nick Drake) the album was critically acclaimed by MOJO, UNCUT and THE QUIETUS. "A gifted melodist, Hitchcock nests engaging lyrics in some of the most bracing, rainbow-hued pop this side of Revolver. He wrests inspiration not from ordinary life but from extraordinary imaginings..." - Rolling Stone "As a performer, he’s as much a wandering bard as a rock star." - The Believer “Some spectral, lingering, emotional thundercloud hangs over The Man Upstairs…harks back to that infinitely distant yet eternally resonant emotional big bang”— UNCUT

Hitchcock at his quirky irrepressible best. Awesome set.

Robyn was amazing. His excellent young band was better than the Venus 3 with Peter Buck. Truly tight with solid harmonies. Frankly it was unbelievable to see such a great show at point blank range.
Superb as were Eagleowl but curfew came before some of my faves or it would have been 6*

I’ve seen Robyn live many times over the past 20 years and this was one of his best shows. Not to be missed.

I’ve been hoping for this opportunity for 30+ years. Did not disappoint. One of the great singer-songwriters out there.
