The Paul Collins Beat is a literal touring machine, and as they finish up 2014 with dates all over the American South, they’re already planning for 2015. Next up: Garageland Presents The Paul Collins Beat & The Rich Hands Rock ‘n Roll Extravaganza. It’s a mouthful, we know, but it’s pretty cool. Each show (mostly club dates) will start with a record fair/happy hour from 5:00pm to 7:00pm, with local records stores and vendors in attendance (and a DJ, too). This gives fans a real hands-on experience to discover new music and learn more about the local scene before visiting the main attraction (the show, duh). As many live bands as possible will be showcased. The first show will take place at the Bremen Café on January 9 in Milwaukee, WI. There will also be gigs in Cedar Falls, IA; Lincoln, NB; Seattle, WA; Portland, OR; Chico, CA; Los Angeles, CA; San Diego, CA; Tucson, AZ; El Paso, TX; and many more. For more information, visit The Paul Collins Beat website.

Formed in Los Angeles, CA, in the late 1970s, The Paul Collins Beats (also known as The Beat), has been touring consistently since their birth. Frontman Paul Collins also releases music with his alt-country group, The Paul Collins Band.
