Paramore @ Cricket Pavilion

Last night was No Doubt at Cricket Pavilion, and Paramore is on tour as their opener. I felt I needed to give No Doubt their own full post... but I still wanted to post a few pics from Paramore's set.

Paramore isn't a band I've followed, but its a band you cant help but hear about. And while orange hair isn't really a new thing, Hayley Williams manages to stand out as the only one doing it in the pop scene today. 

Nominated for a Grammy in 2007 for "Best new artist", and a song on the Twilight soundtrack... Paramore are now a staple on the pop rock scene. Their performance was fun a light hearted. They played to the audience, and the audience responded. A pretty typical poppy-punky-rockish type sound thats easy to swallow and inoffensive make for a pretty successful recipe. Why don't more bands do it? (Sarcasm, kids.)

All in all, it was a good set. Lots of energy and no slow spots. Shooting them was pretty fun and easy too. The lights never really changed so conditions were stress free.
