Robert Stevenson is originally a part of the band A Silent  Film.


Robert Stevenson will be playing in the Maintenance Shop Wednesday evening, which is a bigger deal than it may seem at first. 

Robert Stevenson fronts Oxford alt-rock band A Silent Film. Between 2007 and 2015 the band released a handful of EPs and albums that created a devout community of fans. 

Fans of A Silent Film’s music may also be fans of bands like The Killers, Coldplay, and OneRepublic. In fact, the band has not only toured with OneRepublic, but they have also toured and played with bands like Smashing Pumpkins, Fitz and the Tantrums, and Scouting For Girls. 

The band boasts multiple charting singles and festival appearances at Corona Capital and Firefly. Singles “Lightning Strike” and “Something to Believe In” from their 2015 self-titled album have earned a substantial amount of recognition and success on alternative radio. 

Robert Stevenson is embarking on the “All Good Things” tour as a one-man operation. A Silent Film took an indefinite break because he and co-founder Spencer Walker found that they were thriving in other areas of their lives. 

“Spencer and I had taken some time off after his daughter was born and when we re-convened, we both realized we were really happy doing things away from the band – for him fatherhood, for me producing and writing with other artists,” said Stevenson in a description of the tour. 

“So, it felt like a natural time to close this chapter of the story. But we hadn’t had a chance to say a proper good-bye to our absolutely wonderful fans. So, we hatched the All Good Things idea as a way to do that given the practical considerations of Spencer not being able to go on the road,” Stevenson continued.

The “All Good Things” tour will be the only chance for fans to experience A Silent Film’s music in a live setting during the hiatus.

Emerging indie-alt band I Am Strikes will be joining Stevenson on Wednesday. The band is based in Sacramento, CA and will be supporting Stevenson throughout the tour. 

Tickets are $8 for students and $12 for the public with a $2 increase the day of the show. They are available through Midwesttix or the M-Shop box office.

The Maintenance Shop will open it’s doors at 7:30 p.m. and the show will start at 8 p.m.
