Washington, D.C. band Paperhaus runs DIY house venue


Paperhaus is an emerging Washington, D.C. band that pulls double duty as proprietors of one of the city’s most active independent house venues known as The Paperhaus. Guitarist Alex Tebeleff checked in with us as the band tours behind their latest EP release Lo Hi Lo, recorded at DC’s legendary Inner Ear studios. Yeah, Fugazi recorded there.

Connect with Alex and Paperhaus Monday (Sept. 30) at the Dragonfly Lounge in Madison (with 
Asumaya & Lion's Mouth). Get them pumped up for their Daytrotter session on Tuesday. Who knows? Maybe you can fill in that East Coast tour date with a DC gig.

Low Movie (How To Quit Smoking)

Low Movie (How To Quit Smoking) spans the career of iconic band Low through the eyes of friend and director Philip Harder. Formed in 1993, Low have spent the last twenty years making music without compromise and producing experimental videos along the way. Harder filmed the band's first video on a frozen Lake Superior outside their hometown of Duluth, Minnesota shortly before the release of their debut album. Our friends at Cinema Purgatorio, a boutique film label and booking company, who are spreading the word about the movie gave us their take on the proceedings.
