Experimental local rock band Paperhaus has made its name in the District’s DIY music scene both as musicians and supporters of other emerging artists from around the nation. Since releasing its first self-titled EP in 2011, the group has toured with indie groups like the War on Drugs and Desert Noises, while also welcoming local and touring bands into frontman Alex Tebeleff’s home (also called the Paperhaus) to perform intimate shows.
