ROBYN HITCHCOCK AND EUGENE MIRMAN

Most songwriters avoid going for big laughs—and maybe that's good, since comedy can be so hard to do well. Still, a deadpan, surrealistic sense of humor has always infused the music of Robyn Hitchcock. In 1979, he dedicated Can of Bees, the debut LP of his band The Soft Boys, to "anyone who started out as an animal and winds up as a processing unit." Comedian Eugene Mirman's stand-up persona is infused with rock's wiseass spirit and backed by actual rock content. On his debut, a bit begins, "You know how, sometimes when you're drunk, you say something you sort of regret ... to Ace Frehley?" Heck, he's even on Sub Pop. It feels more than right for these kindred spirits, who have shared stages together informally in recent years, to formally share this seated show. —David Klein
