D.C.'s Paperhaus have come a long way. While the guitarists hail from the D.C. metro area, bassist John DiLascio joined the band after a three-year stint in Japan. Musically, the band covers vast territory as well, obsessing over pop dregs and avant-whatever urges in equal measure. Paperhaus oversee a renowned DIY D.C. show space and studio of the same name. It's only fitting, then, that the People's Arts Collective will play host to them in the Elm City. The band's U.S. tour supports their forthcoming EP Lo Hi Lo and boasts a seriously impressive collection of dates, many in unconventional spaces. See It Yourself.
Paperhaus, with Other Factors, Margene Without Borders, and Onslo
May 28, 7 p.m., People's Arts Collective, 212 College St., New Haven, pacnewhaven.org.
