You'd think that, going to see a band with one popular, breakthrough album, you're bound to hear both your favorite songs. So how on earth did Paramore, one of my favorite bands of the year, get through an entire 80 minute set without playing Hallelujah? That's one of my top jams of 2007! One of two songs I really went to hear. And I get jipped out. Bummer.
Regardless, super fun show. Not much in the way of spectacle, aside from some the head shaking and running around, but the crowd loved it and Hayley's voice held up remarkably well live. Considering it was the last night of the tour and she's like 17 years old and 90 pounds, didn't really expect her to sound all that great in person. But she did. There are some great pics (like the one above) at Ryan Dombal's flickr. Listen to my two favorite songs on the album (and two of the best songs of the year...THAT list is coming soon) below.
