Paramore is a ‘genre neutral’ band from Franklin, TN. I attended the Paramore show in New York City in Radio City Music Hall on Oct. 4.
Opening for Paramore was Best Coast. I got to the venue near the end of Best Coast’s set. I waited on line and purchased an All We Know Is Falling vinyl and got to my seat. After waiting a half hour, Paramore took the stage. Here is the setlist:
- Hard Times
- Still Into You
- Brick By Boring Brick
- Playing God
- That’s What You Get
- I Caught Myself
- Hate To See Your Heart Break
- Told You So
- Everywhere (Fleetwood Mac Cover)
- Fake Happy
- Misery Business
- Ain’t It Fun
- Caught In The Middle *ENCORE*
- Scooby’s in the Back (Halfnoise Cover) *ENCORE*
- Rose- Colored Boy *ENCORE*
Everytime I see Paramore perform, it’s always an emotional experience. When Paramore slowed down the set with “26” and “Hate To See Your Heart Break” it was somber in the venue. Paramore played a lot of songs that were popular like “Misery Business,” “Ain’t It Fun,” “That’s What You Get,” “Hard Times.” Paramore is great with connecting with the crowd and letting fans know that it’s okay to feel sad. I wish that Paramore played a song or two from their album All We Know Is Falling and expanded their setlist adding two or three more songs. If you have yet to see Paramore live, I highly recommend it.
In other news, Vinyl Theatre released a new song “Me, Myself, and I” and Knuckle Puck released “Want Me Around.” Check out those new songs and let me know what you think about them by tweeting to me @ovictoriamedia.
Rock on, stay humble, and be positive!
