Three-piece power rock trio Flash Lightnin’ keep the dance floors shakin’ around Toronto with their hybrid of stompin’ boogie and electrifying rock. The band wears its influence of 70's ZZ Top and Rolling Stones like a well-worn Nudie Suit, with rhinestone crests of Jack White and the Black Keys

Robyn Hitchcock @ The Magic Bag Friday 4/17/2009
ROBYN HITCHCOCK's THE VENUS 3 put on a great performance
at The Magic Bag in Ferndale Friday Apr 17th 2009

Coming to prominence in the late 1970s with The Soft Boys, Hitchcock afterwards launched a prolific solo career. Hitchcock's musical and lyrical styles have been influenced by his appreciation of Bob Dylan, John Lennon and Syd Barrett. Hitchcock's lyrics are an essential component of his work and tend to include surrealism, comedic songs, characterizations of English eccentrics and melancholy depictions of everyday life. His themes include what many psychologists view as the roots of modern neurosis - namely, death, sex and eating.
