GET HIP • GET ART Sound Series: Free Show Oct. 16, 2014 at Get Hip HQ

GET HIP • GET ART announces a new Sound Series live concert with the legendary King of Power Pop, PAUL COLLINS! This not-to-be-missed, free all-ages show will be held on Thursday, October 16, 2014 at Get Hip Recordings’ headquarters in the RJ Casey Industrial Park (Pittsburgh, PA).

August’s Teenage Garage Explosion erupted with killer sets by some of the area’s finest young garage-rockers while September’s event hosted Switzerland’s wildest purveyors of trash rock, The Monsters, in their first-ever Pittsburgh appearance – a super fun, unforgettably over-the-top showdown!

Now we welcome the inimitable Paul Collins, a longtime collaborator who’s been perfecting pop songs since his 1979 debut with The BEAT (considered one of the top ten Power Pop albums of all time!). A genuine troubadour, Paul has relentlessly toured the globe (this year saw him on a two-week tour of China) while continuing to release amazing record after amazing record – including two albums on our very own Get Hip Recordings. He is currently touring the U.S. in support of his brand new album FEEL THE NOISE, released on Alive Records. Paul will be joined onstage by Pittsburgh’s own City Steps.

Get Hip’s Pop-Up Shop will be on-hand to showcase an expansive in-house selection of LP’s, CD’s, 45′s, T-shirts, and more - all available for sale to attendees!

The show will run from 7:30 PM to 11 PM on Thursday, Oct. 16, 2014. Get Hip Recordings’ offices are located in the RJ Casey Industrial Park, 1800 Preble Avenue (North Shore, Pittsburgh, PA). RSVP on Facebook!

Donations are encouraged.
All proceeds will go directly to the performing bands.

THE UGLY BEATS: Praise For “Brand New Day”

See what critics are saying about Brand New Daythe brilliant new studio album from Austin, TX’s preeminent garage-pop band, The Ugly Beats - available exclusively from Get Hip Recordings:

“Packed with punchy, all-American pop-rock anthems”
Brett Callwood | Detroit Metro Times 

“Includes chiming/jangling guitars…plaintive, heart-on-sleeve vocals, conciseness, and yearningly pretty, insidiously catchy melodies” (4/5 Stars)
Mark Keresman, Esq. | ICON

“They perform a set of uptempo garagey pop-rock thumpers which, at times, bring to mind the Cynics when they were still new on the block.”
Lenny Helsing | Shindig! Magazine

“Expertly blends [The Ugly Beats'] love of ‘60s rock ‘n’ roll with more current power pop and punk elements. It’s 35 minutes without a bum note”
Austin American-Statesman

“The songs are good. No, make that VERY good. Seriously, this will appeal to fans of The Kinks, the Rain Parade…”
Dagger

Brand New Day is available on limited edition 180-gram orange vinyl180-gram black vinylCD, and Digital.
