Paris, Texas shouldn't be playing the Gypsy Tea Room. In fact, there shouldn't be any tour dates booked anywhere. Paris, Texas has broken up, fallen down and cheated death so many times that the members stopped believing. But other people didn't--bookers, clubs, friends who passed around demos and the labels that came calling--and it's largely because of those supporters that this band survived and continues to do so well. They just finished a tour with Jimmy Eat World, and their new album Like You Like an Arsonist is a rockin' bill of health with fast tempos, sassy vocals, rebellious lyrics and loud guitars. So is it true that what doesn't kill you makes you stronger? Find out when Paris, Texas plays Wednesday with Minus the Bear, Statistics and Lady of the Lake.
