The Psychedelic Furs, Robyn Hitchcock

When: Tue., April 11, 8 p.m. 2017

The Psychedelic Furs are one of the best rock bands of the ’80s, and their fans are devout. They’ve been reunited since 2000, and they’re better than ever. Robyn Hitchcock, who will open for them at this show, gained prominence in the late ’70s as a member of the Soft Boys. While he’s primarily a guitarist and vocalist, he also plays piano, harmonica, and bass guitar for his shows. He was heavily influenced by Bob Dylan and John Lennon, and you can definitely tell when you listen to him. Hitchcock’s well-deserved cult following is huge, and has been since the early ’80s. His music, which blends comedy and melancholy perfectly, would appeal to anyone, and as talented as he is as an instrumentalist, he definitely is an equal lyricist.
