A Paper Cup Band Critics’ Pick

Published in Blog Archive, City Pages. Tags: , .

From the backwoods of Wisconsin comes A Paper Cup Band, an acoustic-based group that, for better or worse, performs music that lands somewhere close to folk, or “bastard-folk,” as the band calls itself. Occasionally kissing the sound with a base of electronics, the group will be hosting a release show this Friday at the Hexagon Bar for its recently completed Detroit vs. Farming album, released via Anti-Civ Records. Joining A Paper Cup Band will be its label-mates Bouncer Fighter and ShugE, as well as the Absent Arch and Sleeping in the Aviary. The date kicks of a nationwide, or at least Western-nationwide, tour that will take the group to California and back. So if you stop by the Hexagon, like what you hear, and will coincidentally be around the greater Reno, Nevada, area early in February, you’ll have another opportunity to enjoy the band.
