A ghostly appearance meshed with a lively sound, high-energy indie folk band Paleface is a living contradiction.

The band will bring their ironic ways to World Café Live at the Queen on Thursday.

Paleface, who initially performed as solo artist, is currently on tour in support of his Ramseur Records follow-up album “One Big Party.” He celebrated the release with a special guest-performance alongside The Avett Brothers at New York City’s Radio City Music Hall, followed by tours in the United States and Europe.

Soon after the album's release, Daytrotter.com featured a new stripped-down recording session by Paleface, and one of the tracks was voted "Daytrotter's Best of the Year - Reader's Choice."

Schooled musically by friend Daniel Johnston and discovered by the legendary Danny Fields (The Stooges, The Ramones, MC5) at an open mic in New York City, Paleface has released more than a dozen records including two major label releases, as well as appearances on three albums by The Avett Brothers.

And not to mention, he’s influenced and inspired a wide range of musical acts, from electropopsters Yacht to Grammy Award-winners Kimya Dawson (The Moldy Peaches) and Beck.
