As a founding member of the New Wave-era stalwarts Squeeze, Glenn Tilbrook's compositions will forever be in the pantheon of great pop songs. Tilbrook, along with his writing partner Chris Difford were often regarded as the Lennon and McCartney of their generation. The duo's smart, sophisticated brand of pop never achieved commercial success commensurate with their critical favor, although singles like "Pulling Mussels (From the Shell)," "Tempted," "Black Coffee in Bed," "Annie Get Your Gun," "Hourglass," and "Up The Junction" remain timeless cult classics. The '90s found Tilbrook guesting on albums by artists including Aimee Mann and the Soft Boys' Kimberley Rew.

Tillbrook officially kicked off a solo career with the release of the single Parallel World on his own Quixotic Records in late 2000. The following year brought the release of another single, This Is Where You Ain't, and his first full-length album, The Incomplete Glenn Tilbrook, which included songs cowritten with Aimee Mann ("Observatory") and Ron Sexsmith ("You See Me"). Glenn's most recent album, Transatlantic Ping Pong, continues the tradtion of writing witty, succinct pop songs. You won't want to miss this pop icon live at the Linda.

Opening the show will be Jim Bianco, and a warm-up set by Mike Gent of area favorites, The Figgs.
