Paul Collins Beat on tour

FIRST US TOUR OF 2009 WITH PAUL COLLINS BEAT & GENTLEMAN JESSE and HIS MEN

Paul Collins has joined forces with Gentleman Jesse to go out on the road for 10 shows in the South/Mid West/East Coast starting January 24th at The Earl in Atlanta Georgia! Paul met Jesse when they performed together this past summer in Atlanta at The Earl and also at the Wildweekend Power Pop Festival in Austin Texas. The two become fast friends and started their own mutual admiration society. This led to Jesse offering to not only organize a tour but also assemble the backing band for Paul,(recently relocated to NYC) using members from his own group Gentleman Jesse. Once the ball got rolling Get Hip, Paul's US label, has come on board to lend a hand in securing dates and promotion at press and radio. Gentleman Jesse will open the concerts performing songs from his releases on Douchemaster Records and Rob's House, 2 Atlanta based labels and then Paul Collins will take the stage to perform songs from his entire recorded output in support of his latest release Ribbon of Gold (Get Hip) and also the stunning new release "One Way Ticket" of his first band The Nerves (Alive Records). The tour will culminate with a live broadcast on WFMU on The Cherry Blossom Clinic with Terre T, February 7th! Once again the DIY spirit that Paul Collins helped to create back in the late Seventies is alive and well in the 21st Century! Keep on rocking!

I saw the August show and thought it was fantastic. Paul Collins needs no introduction and Gentleman Jesse is a new favorite. Highly recommend you check this out if you get the chance. I know I'm going to try to be at The EARL on the 24th.
