On the heels of a stellar debut recent performance at Bonnaroo, and currently in the midst of “Tour 5,” the fifth leg of dates in support of last year’s phenomenal fifth album After Laughter, beloved local alt rock outfit Paramore recently announced one more very special hometown event, as they began to wind down this record cycle (or “era,” as they like to dub it).
Called Art + Friends, the performance will take place Sept. 7 at Municipal Auditorium, where the group have played in years past, but more than just a concert, the event is intended as a celebration of the Nashville’s wonderful alternative music and art scene, and will showcase a stacked supporting lineup of local performers, local art, local venders, and more.
Joining Paramore are a slate of acts regular readers should be more than familiar with: COIN, Bully, Canon Blue, Liza Anne, and Nightingail– an excellent sample of some of the amazing music coming out of Nashville right now. Tickets are on sale now right here, but we’re thrilled to announce that we’re also giving away a pair of tickets to one luck fan- enter for a chance to win below!
This a supremely cool idea, and just the latest example of the Grammy winning, homegrown group using their success and influence to shed light on some of their lesser-known local peers. With this tour cycle, especially, Paramore have been particularly rooted at home, writing and recording After Laughter here, and opting to play secret shows at spots like Exit/In and The End, amidst international tour dates.
In the coming weeks, we’ll be showcasing every single performer with separate, full-length spotlights, but for now, you can get a taste of the stellar lineup with some musical preview after the jump.
