Last Night: Paul Collins’ Beat, Bad Sports and Occult Detective Club at Rubber Gloves

Paul Collins’ Beat, Bad Sports, Occult Detective Club

Better than: a night filled with powerless pop.

Paul_Collins_Beat.jpgPaul Collins​Power-pop, generally, is a young man’s game. It takes a certain vigor, a certain snottiness and a certain youthful energy to pull off chugging, three-minute takes on young love.

It should be noted at this point that Paul Collins is not young. By any account.

Still, at 57 years old, and with some 35 years off power-pop proffering in his back pocket, he’s certainly got the genre down pat. And, last night at Rubber Gloves Rehearsal Studios in Denton, over the course of an 80-minute, rather non-stop performance, he proved as much, looking Father Time squarely in the eye and snarling at him with the brashness of an 18-year-old punk.
