Paper Mice have long been a staple of the Chicago DIY scene. I'll never forget the first time I saw them in the Mopery, a now defunct warehouse spot in Logan Square. It showed me right off the bat that some immense talent was buried underneath the surface of our bars and large music halls. The precision of these songs rests in the players ability, two of them being music teachers. It's a level of skill brought into what are basically sharp punk rock songs that has won over countless crowds over the years. This is a new song off The Funny Papers, due in the spring of 2012.
