TVD Recommends: Paper Thick Walls at Double Door, 9/6

The music of Paper Thick Walls has been placed upon the same pedestal as many of the great indie folk artists of the last two decades. On top of that, their debut album A Thousand Novels has received literally hundreds of positive reviews since its 2011 release. This Friday, these Chicago locals bring their brand of orchestral indie rock back home to the Double Door.

Their songs may present themselves as understated folk ballads upon first listen, but they quickly grow into raucous walls of sound. The five piece band is composed of violin, piano, guitar, upright bass, and drums.

Add to that equation the infectious songwriting and vocal style of lead band members Eric Michaels and Kate Schell, and you’ll see that there’s a damn good reason Paper Thick Walls has received so much praise.

As if their seemingly never ending tour schedule and passionate songwriting wasn’t enough, Eric Michaels and Kate Schell performed the principal roles in a full-length feature film premiering in 2014 entitled, “We Grew Up Here.” The film, directed by Kevin Pickman and produced by 15 in the Dark Collab, will also feature a soundtrack composed and performed by Eric and Kate.

With their winning combination of enchanting melodies and top quality musicianship, Paper Thick Walls are poised to make it big. Keep an eye out for a new EP from them later this year, and don’t miss their Chicago gig this weekend.

The entire lineup on September 6th at the Double Door is sure to impress and entertain any fan of upbeat folk rock—that you can dance to. Sharing the bill on Friday is Deanna Devore, American Wolf and Xoe Wise.

Doors: 8:00 pm / Show: 8:30 pm, Tickets: $10.00 – $12.00, 21+
