UK cult icon Robyn Hitchcock returns to the Tote, for his first Australian shows in five years. Backed by a full band led by You Am I’s Davey Lane, Robyn will delve into his incredible catalogue of songs from The Soft Boys to today.
 
With a career now spanning six decades, Robyn Hitchcock remains a truly one-of-a-kind artist –surrealist rock ’n’ roller, iconic troubadour, guitarist, poet, painter, performer. An unparalleled, deeply individualistic songwriter and stylist, Hitchcock has traversed myriad genres with humor, intelligence, and originality over more than thirty albums and seemingly infinite live performances.
 
From The Soft Boys’ proto-psych-punk and The Egyptians’ Dadaist pop to solo masterpieces like 1984’s milestone I Often Dream of Trains and 1990’s Eye, Hitchcock has crafted a strikingly original oeuvre rife with sagacious observation, astringent wit, recurring marine life, mechanized rail services, cheese, Clint Eastwood, and innumerable finely drawn characters real and imagined. 
 
Opening the show are psych/prog locals Heavy Amber, an acclaimed trio whose vibrant and enveloping sound recalls early Pink Floyd and King Crimson.
