Paramore will celebrate the arts community in their hometown of Nashville with the “Paramore Art + Friends” festival on Friday, September 7. “We want to celebrate our hometown and the fast growing, wacky and wonderful alternative music and arts community of Nashville. We want to show you what our fine city has to offer, outside of bachelorette parties and karaoke bars…Take it from a group of kids who grew up right here in this city – the new Nashville is definitely alright with us. We’re excited to give everyone a chance to experience Nashville the way we do,” says singer Hayley Williams. Paramore is currently on the road touring until July 24 at Red Rocks in Colorado.
