Flamin’ Groovies / Paul Collins @ Bowery Ballroom 7/6/2013
Saturday night (7/6) at Bowery Ballroom was a haven for lovers of classic powerpop, with two legends: Flamin’ Groovies and Paul Collins. The former were on their first tour in over 30 years with key member Chris Wilson (also of Barracudas) in tow, and cranked out such standards as “Shake Some Action” and “Teenage Head.” It was the first of two NYC-area shows over the weekend for the band, who also played Maxwell’s a day later with Daddy Long Legs.
Opening was Paul Collins Beat, the current project of Paul Collins, who was one third of seminal late-’70s band The Nerves and then went on to front his own band, The Beat. Pictures from the whole show are in this post.
