Saturday, July 29 - 8:00 pm

Paramore is a band that formed in 2003 in a quiet town that is now known as Nashville, TN. Still in junior high, music made up 100% of their extracurricular time. Until eventually, they all left for tour in the middle of a school year and thank heaven music would eventually work out for them. No one understood how a band so un-country could be from this strange little town called Nashville, nor how a bunch of kids so small could play their angst-filled songs so proudly. 
Much time has passed since those innocent days. 
Life has worn its grooves into the record that is Paramore's collective life. If you look closely, you can see that the members of Paramore all have very sexy dark circles under their eyes now... and surprisingly, haven't all quit music after years of sexism in the media, soap opera-worthy drama, and nearly 15 years inside the brutal beast that is the music industry. 
Paramore still reside in their beloved home of Nashville, TN, which these days looks a lot more like a construction site than a well-kept secret. They spend most their days and nights sitting on the porch together laughing or crying... reminiscing, daydreaming, or trying desperately to just stay present. 
The band recently wrote and recorded their 5th album in their hometown of Nashville.
It's called After Laughter and it comes out May 12th. Listen to the first single, "Hard Times" out everywhere now. 

 

X Ambassadors

X Ambassadors released their debut full length album VHS (KIDinaKORNER/Interscope) in June 2015, where it debuted at #7 on the Billboard Top 200 chart and has since been certified gold by the RIAA.  The set was produced by Grammy Award-winning producer Alex Da Kid and features the platinum selling, #1 Alternative radio song "Renegades."

New single "Unsteady" is currently climbing the charts and was recently certified platinum as well.  X Ambassadors and Tom Morello teamed up for the song "Collider" which appears on VHS 2.0, the deluxe edition of VHS released this summer. 

"Collider" was ESPN and ABC's 2016 Road to the College Football Playoff Theme Song. For more information and tour dates, visit www.xambassadors.com.
