Peter Case and Paul Collins have been all up and down the West Coast helping to form the foundations of the LA punk/pop scene of the late ’70s and early ’80s. Now they’re heading to Amsterdam in a much anticipated reunion tribute to the many bands they once called their own. Even while performing with different groups, their roots remained connected when, for example, Plimsouls did a reincarnated version of the Nerves song, “Hanging on the Telephone,” that went big when it was covered by Blondie in 1978. Even more stunning, Case’s solo work also has a big list of fans, including none other than Bruce Springsteen. Now Case and Collins are back together performing songs from their varied past, giving us a taste of the underground LA scene. (We’re anticipating a packed show, be sure to get tickets early.) 8 p.m. $20.
