Peter Case and Paul Collins

Score: 0

Only $15 for two power pop legends folks, do not miss this show! Peter Case and Paul Collins played in two different highly influential Los Angeles power pop bands together, The Nerves and The Breakaways. The Nerves created some outstanding music during their career, including "Hanging on the Telephone" that became a huge hit for Blondie. The Breakaways formed out of the ashes of The Nerves.

When The Breakaways broke up Paul Collins left his place behind the drum kit and formed a new band known as The Beat, a band he was the singer and rhythm guitarist for as well as the primary songwriter. That band later became The Paul Collins Beat in the early eighties and various line-ups of the band continue to perform to this day.

Peter Case formed one of power pop's all-time great bands The Plimsouls after he parted ways with Collins. The Plimsouls had a short original run from 1979-1983 but in that time appeared in the cult classic movie Valley Girl and penned the massive alternative rock single "A Million Miles Away", along with a string of other great singles such as "How Long Will it Take" and "Shaky City". The band's second album Everywhere at Once that was released in 1983 remains a power pop classic.

Folks, this show is going to be an ultra-special affair with these two artists reuniting to play songs from The Nerves, The Breakaways, The Beat and The Plimsouls. Do not miss this 21+ show!
