Peter Case, Paul Collins, Summer Twins, Carnabetian Army 

When: Sat., March 3, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $15
Both Peter Case and Paul Collins have enjoyed long careers as two of the great purveyors of real-time-and-beyond post-punk pop: Case fronted the Plimsouls (makers of '83 hit "A Million Miles Away") and launched a troubadourian solo career (his 1986 cover of the Pogues' "A Pair of Brown Eyes" was the "My Heart Will Go On" of my high-school class), while Collins carried on as the leader of the Beat (not the English Beat, but rather Paul Collins' Beat). But everything you need to know to love both of them forever can be found on the only release by the Nerves, a four-song EP that Collins, Case, and guitarist Jack Lee released in 1976. Kicking off with the great, gritty original of "Hangin' on the Telephone" and perfect 'til the end, The Nerves captures a talent-packed band finding their voices, and people with ears will love it forever. Tonight the Star Theater hosts the Peter Case and Paul Collins Reunion Tribute to the Nerves, which is exactly what it says it is, and hurrah. DAVID SCHMADER
