Alt-rock vet and polkadot fan, Robyn Hitchcock is currently on an acoustic tour with Emma Swift that hit Port Washington, NY’s Landmark on Saturday, January 29. Drawing from his exceedingly rich catalog — including “Madonna of the Wasps,” “Raymond Chandler Evening,” “Balloon Man” — Hitchcock entertains equally with his between-song stories and non sequiturs. For his encore, Robyn paid tribute to David Bowie with four covers, including “Five Years,” “The Prettiest Star,” “Quicksand,” and “Soul Love.” Video of “Quicksand” and “Soul Love” covers (plus a couple Hitchcock originals) from the Landmark show, as well as the setlist, below.

The next day (1/30), Robyn visited WFMU for Todd-O-Phonic Todd’s show for an interview and live session. You can listen to that here. Robyn and Emma will be touring together again in March and April. No NYC show, but there are a few in NY, NJ and CT. All dates are listed, along with more photos from the Landmark show, below.
