--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------Paul Collins Beat Goes To China

1533925_425906047512773_286119074_n (2).jpg

In January Collins gave Pollstar a heads up on his China plans during an interview focusing on how he applies his do-it-yourself methods to touring.  For Collins, playing the small towns is as important as his big city gigs.

“We’regoing to take a bullet train from Shanghai to Beijing and play all these little
towns where they don’t even know what rock ’n’ roll is,” Collins told
Pollstar. “It’s going to be through the roof.”

Collins’ tour of China actually begins near Shanghai in the community of Songjiang.Stops along the way include Suzhou, Nanjing, Wuhan, Hefei and Qingdao before wrapping in Beijing.  Here’s the schedule:

March 6 – Songjiang, Du Yin Jia (Independent Music House)

March 7 – Suzhou, Tunnel Bar

March 8 –Shanghai, Yuyintang

March 9 – Kunshan, Whales Bar

March 11– Nanjing, Castle Bar

March 12– Wuhan, Vox

March 13 – Hefei, On The Way Bar

March 14– Qingdao, Downtown Bar

March 15– Beijing, Yogong Yishan

Collins plans to supply Pollstar with a tour diary and photos of China once his journey begins.

Once again the spirit of DIY Rock n Roll will take to the high roads and blitzkrieg its way around the US of A! Parasite Diet, an up and coming Punk Pop band out of Nashville will team up with the Paul Collins Beat self-proclaimed King of Power Pop to ply their brand of guitar driven rock n roll on unsuspecting kids anywhere they can. The festivities will begin in Green Bay, WI at The Crunchy Frog the perfect place for these two bands to start their odyssey that will snake its way down through the middle of the country and eventually wind up in the crown jewel of The South…New Orleans. Make no mistake about it rock n roll is alive and well and thriving in the clubs in towns all across America, yeah it may be on the outside of the limelight, you won’t hear about it Rolling Stone, but who reads Rolling Stone anymore? Tour after tour Paul Collins and his Beat are undaunted in their belief that rock n roll can still be fun, affordable and loud! What started out as a lark some five years ago when he hit the road with Gentlemen Jesse (ATL) as his opener and backup band, has turned in to a way of life. Hundreds of shows later, done with countless new and up and coming bands from all parts of America they show no signs of stopping. Sure this is nothing new and bands are criss-crossing the country right now as we speak, what makes this important is the style of music that is being expunged here…Power Pop, rock n roll at its most melodic point, songs, harmonies and an uplifting message that says lets have some fun, let’s try to kiss some girls and let’s dance! This is the kind of music young kids can dream about, soaring melodies that lift you up out of your seat and take you on a ride into outer space.

Yeah it’s no big deal really, songs about work, love and travel the stuff that has moved people for generations, but if you take a chance and check out a show and see the crowd movin and a grooving, dancing and smiling, bouncing up and down in time to the music, then you will have a whole different attitude about what it is that is happening, you will see that maybe it’s no big deal but it is damn good!

Writers, editors, DJ’s and programmer’s we need your help in getting the word out to the people in your town who will dig this, and they are out there, this we know to be true, all it takes is the spark to get them going, in the end all we want to do is give them a good time.

In these times we live in, where hardly anyone does anything by hand anymore, we are out there, using our god given talents, no machines involved outside of an automobile to bring our music to the people just like it was in the beginning.

There is whole new scene out there brewing underground, what was once old has now become new again, this is the perfect pairing, Paul Collins cut his teeth in The Nerves & The Beat legendary groups from a bye gone era and Parasite Diet, a new young band that carries the torch for the next generation….
