I missed this earlier in the month, but Yep Roc has released an EP from Robyn Hitchcock & the Venus 3, Sex, Food, Death and Tarantulas, with six live tracks from the Ole! Tarantula tour and 2 videos for "Adventure Rocket Ship".

April 8th - Sam Bond's Garage Eugene, OR
April 10th - Slims, San Francisco, CA

The documentary Robyn Hitchcock: Sex, Food, Death and Insects played at SXSW and will be on the Sundance Channel on Tuesday, March 27 at 10pm ET/PT.

There's a good deal of Hitchcock recordings at the Live Music Archive, including a show from 2005 at the Great American Music Hall in San Francisco, where Hitchcock performed what might be my favorite song by him, "Queen Elvis". It's an especially direct and intimate character study for Hitchcock, who's usually prone to more oblique narratives ("Coming out's the hardest part/when you're Queen Elvis..."). This solo version with harmonica might be better than the original.
