The Paper Chase Pulls Out Of Saturday Night's Rubber Gloves Show

Fans of The Paper Chase looking forward to catching up with the band on Saturday night (present company included) are in for some bad news: The band has pulled out of its scheduled show alongside Sarah Jaffe and The Boom Boom Box at Denton's Rubber Gloves Rehearsal Studios, as lead singer John Congleton has, quite unfortunately, lost his voice.

Replacing The Paper Chase on the bill is not-local (or is he?) indie rock-rap fusionist Astronautalis, who was previously scheduled as only a special guest on the bill. And, here's a fun fact: Saturday night is also Astronautalis' birthday.

So, yeah, it's a loss. But not a bad replacement. Not at all. --Pete Freedman
