watch Liz Phair, Robyn Hitchcock & Sadie Dupuis cover The Soft Boys’ “I Wanna Destroy You”

Liz Phair‘s tour with Speedy Ortiz  hit Nashville on Monday night (10/1) for a show at Exit/In. For her encore, Liz had a great surprise, welcoming current Nashville resident Robyn Hitchcock to the stage, and Sadie too, to cover “I Wanna Destroy You” the anti-war anthem by Robyn’s old band The Soft Boys. Liz has adopted for similar purposes, having tweeted about the song couple weeks back, writing, “I’ve found my anthem for these troubled Trumpian times.” Robyn replied, “Thank you Liz! I’ve been playing this song with renewed loathing since 2016.” You can watch video of that below.

The Liz Phair / Speedy Ortiz tour hits NYC’s Brooklyn Steel on Saturday, October 6 (tickets).

Robyn Hitchcock, meanwhile, will be on tour with his band The Nashville Fabs starting Friday, October 5 in Seattle and he’ll play NYC’s Bowery Ballroom on October 12 with Emma Swift (tickets). He’s added more dates since our last post and those are listed below.
