Because of his work in the Nerves and the Beat, Paul Collins enjoys cult-hero status in the world of power-pop enthusiasts. His current band, the Paul Collins Beat, cheekily titled its 2010 album King of Power Pop!, and it delivers exactly the kind of delicious, melodic hooks you'd expect from a record with such a name. On this Midwestern tour, Collins has recruited like-minded local acts to support at every stop. Tonight at RecordBar, we'll be treated to the Dead Girls (whose drummer, Eric Melin, is fresh home from Finland, where he was recently crowned Air Guitar World Champion) and Kinks acolytes Rev Gusto.
