England's enduring alternative rock eccentric
Over the past four decades, Robyn Hitchcock has built a large and distinctive body of work that's established him as one of rock's most respected and beloved iconoclasts. Drawing on roots in the music of John Lennon, Bob Dylan, and the New Wave, his unique songs veer from comic surrealism to slightly melancholy pictures of everyday life and the slightly eccentric people who live it--all set to gorgeous ore fun," he says. He describes his songs as "paintings you can listen to." Robyn comes to Michigan for his first new show in five years with several recent releases including a self-titled one he describes as "an ecstatic work of negativity with nary a dreary groove."
