Robyn Hitchcock

When: Thu., Oct. 15, 7 p.m. 2009

A surrealist, sex-obsessed rocker who began his career as a witty art-punk in 1976, fronting for the Soft Boys, Robyn Hitchcock is a central figure in the closing stretch of this week’s Indie Memphis Film Festival. He wrote and recorded the soundtrack for the festival feature Women in Trouble and is the subject of the concert documentary I Often Dream of Trains in New York. And if those films leave you hungry for more Hitchcock, then you’re in luck: The man behind such delicious oddities as “My Wife and My Dead Wife” and “Lend Me a Spanner, Ralph” is closing the festival with an intimate acoustic set at Studio on the Square, dubbed “An Evening with Robyn Hitchcock: Songs and Storytelling.” Tickets are $20, and the show begins at 7 p.m. on Thursday, October 15th. — Chris Davis
