Eli "Paperboy" Reed

Eli Paperboy Reed & the True Loves 

When: Wed., Oct. 27, 8 p.m. 2010
Price: $15

The acquisition of his nickname (a nod to the newsboy-style cap he used to sport) is a nice tidbit from New England-born Eli "Paperboy" Reed's backstory, but even more interesting is his stint playing church music in Chicago. It wasn't just any church; it was that of Mitty Collier, whose "I Had a Talk with My Man" was a smash for Chess Records in 1964. True enough, Reed can write, sing and lead a band through belt-it-out soul songs that sound straight from Chess (or Stax or Hi or ...) and straight out of the '60s. The music—and, one presumes, the shagging—starts around 7:30 p.m. —Rick Cornell
