Looking Forward to Catching Robyn Hitchcock and Venus 3 at Slim’s Tomorrow Night

www.myspace.com/robynhitchcock Well I’m super excited about heading out to the Robyn Hitchcock show at Slim’s tomorrow night. I’ve been a fan since way back of Hitchcock’s music.

Tomorrow night he’ll also be joined by Venus 3 which includes 1/3 of REM in the form of special guest Peter Buck along with Scott McCaughey and Bill Rieflin.

Anyways, check out Robyn’s MySpace page if you want to hear some of the cuts from his latest album Ole! Tarantula. Robyn’s official site is here.

Thanks also to Mike Magnuson for arranging a photo pass for me for the show. If you make it out tomorrow night, I’ll be the guy in the Blogger shirt and jeans with the camera.

Slim’s, by the way, is a great place to see a show. Small and super intimate. I haven’t been there for a few years but am definitely looking forward to it tomorrow night.

If you want to buy tickets for the show you can get them at tickets.com. Just do a search for Hitchcock.

And if you want to check out some earlier Hitchcock stuff, Jonathan Demme made a film in 1998 called Storefront Hitchcock.

Also, last month Hitchcock and Venus 3 were the feature of John Edginton’s hour long “Sex, Food, Death and Insects” on the Sundance Channel. It will be playing again in July.

Hitchcock and Venus 3 also perform on Thursday at Spaceland in Los Angeles and Saturday at Club Congress in Tucson, AZ.
