Concert Series to Feature “Paper Route”

Paper Route with special guest Faces of My Time will perform through the Hope College Concert Series on Saturday, Jan. 31, at 8 p.m. at the Knickerbocker Theatre.

Tickets are $10 for the general public and $5 with a Hope College ID, and are available at the ticket office in the main lobby of the DeVos Fieldhouse.

Hailing from Nashville, Tenn., Paper Route has been described by "Paste Magazine" as a "refreshing mix of the organic and the electronic with quality songwriting to match" and also with, "Think of a less computerized Postal Service - more organic, fewer ones and zeroes."

Begun by member Chad Howat during a period of insomnia in 2004, the band has grown to include three close friends and has released 3 EPs to date.  After performing as an opener for Sleeping at Last at Hope College in September 2007, the band is returning to the Knickerbocker Theatre as the main act.

Faces of My Time, fronted by Hope College sophomore Jacob Bullard, originated from Traverse City, Mich.  The band's members are in the process of recording their debut album, which they are recording themselves in their home studio.

The ticket office is open weekdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m., and can be called at (616) 395-7890.  Any remaining tickets will be sold at the door.

The DeVos Fieldhouse is located at 222 Fairbanks Ave., between Ninth and 11th streets.  The Knickerbocker Theatre is located in downtown Holland at 86 E. Eighth St.

The doors will open at 7:30 p.m. the night of the concert.
