On Thursday, Jan. 15, local promoter Duck Club Presents will provide what is essentially a seminar on influential American power-pop music. It costs $10 to get in, you must be 21 or older to attend and making a reservation isn't an option, so arrive early to make sure you get a spot. In this workshop, you'll learn that commercial success and longevity are often mutually exclusive; you'll see tenacity and talent personified; and you'll learn that the music sounds familiar because it has been emulated by so many others. OK, this "seminar" is actually a show, but you probably will learn something about the past 40 years of pop music (and see an incredible show) from watching iconic Paul Collins Beat perform live. Though we were kidding about this being a workshop, arriving early is no joke. You don't want to miss openers The Rich Hands and Marshall Poole.
