A Paper Cup Band
Hailing from Minneapolis, Minnesota, this group of gypsy folk artists concentrate on one thing: playing bastard-folk. Not your every day folk band, but instead a bastardized version of it. Catchy songs, clever and witty lyrics, and quite the stage show. A Paper Cup Band should be in your cd player now. Focusing on preserving house shows while being a band that givese back to its fans, hands on. Read more on Last.fm …read full bio

    'A Paper Cup Band' Throws Down a Mean Hoedown

    A Paper Cup Band 01/23 @ Random House PartyThis Minneapolis trio really knows how to kill the party and alienate the sorrostitutes that have never expanded their musical vocabulary beyond Cyndi Lauper and Madonna; good.. However, if you're cool enough to wait the three minute set up time with out making stinkface - you're in money because A Paper Cup Band bring a whole other level of party.. These acoustic anarcho-jug band stylee (you describe them?) guys were tossed last minute into a fashion dance party and pulled it off fluid.. The whole house was stompin' and shakin, booties were bouncing all over the living room.

    J Sadly, the rumors about the Know are true. The owner kept 18% of everyone's paychecks the entire year long, under the guise of paying taxes. Come tax time, everyone realized that taxes were paid for 1 month only, and everyone is out the rest of the $. When asked about it, the owner resorted to name calling and threats. Several staff members are still owed over 1000+ in unpaid wages as well.

    Chuggo @cobra lounge, the [Apr 05, 2018] » It seems like the Know is having trouble making ends meet and I hope Ryan can make good with his former employees and right the ship before Portland loses another crucial music venue. So far all I’ve been able to get out of anyone is essentially “there are reasons.” Like what? All the usual “scene drama” people…read the full comment
