Paul Collins Beat, Mean Jeans, The Cry, Defect Defect
203 SE Grand Ave.
[POWER POP] Helming The Nerves and The Beat has left Paul Collins toting around such a colossal bag of sunshiny L.A. pop songs that writing new ditties can’t be a tremendous concern. His last batch for Bomp! Records, 2010’s King of Power Pop, didn’t do much to change that accrued legacy, but turning in stunners like “Hanging on the Telephone” (no, Cat Power didn’t write it, nor did Debbie Harry, dufus) and “Walking Out on Love” during the 1970s means high-tension pop won’t be in short supply, regardless of what portion of his career Collins pulls from on this current tour.
