Robyn Hitchcock to celebrate his 60th birthday at The Fillmore (Win tickets to the show!)
May 1, 2013
Written by Ben Van Houten
With almost four decades in music, first with The Soft Boys, then as a solo artist, the 500-plus song catalog of Robyn Hitchcock might seem, to an outsider, impenetrably massive. It seemed that way to me, anyway, but diving in at the beginning — which is to say, the second Soft Boys album, Underwater Moonlight, followed by the terrific solo sets Black Snake Diamond Role and I Often Dream of Trains — reveals a penchant for wonderfully bizarre, lyrical songwriting that cements Hitchcock’s place as one of music’s great weirdos (and I mean that as a high compliment).
On Thursday, May 2nd, Hitchcock is receiving a 60th birthday celebration at The Fillmore. The evening will be hosted by The Decemberists’ Colin Meloy and promises many special guests.
Tickets are still available,
but we have a pair to giveaway! Email contest[at]thebaybridged.com with the subject line “Robyn Hitchcock” and include your full name for a chance to win.
