Paramore plays Mohegan Sun

It's hard to believe that A) Paramore has been around a whole decade, and that B) we're already to the point in "rock criticism" where we describe them as a "post emo" act.

Or that C) it's already been two years since founding members/brothers Josh and Zack Fero left the band amidst some non-pleasantries.

No worries, though. Behind dynamic frontwoman Haley Williams, the Tennessee-by-way-of-Florida band released a self-titled LP in April that debuted at Number One on the Billboard charts. With flash-happy special effects and a catalog of anthemic, sing-along rock, Paramore - playing the Mohegan Sun Arena Sunday - continues to be a huge draw.


Paramore, 7:30 p.m. Sunday, Mohegan Sun Arena; Metric and Hellogoodbye open; $35; 1-888-664-3426, mohegansun.com.

Cranberry sauce: Whether it's the home made stuff containing actual cranberries or the reddish jelly shaped like the can it plopped out of, it reminds me of childhood.
Turkey, of course: Turkey slathered in gravy. Turkey with cranberry sauce (see above). Turkey with mashed potatoes on it. Turkey in sandwiches the next day. All I care about is the golden bird.
Latkes: For the first time in 125 years, Thanksgiving falls during Hanukkah so our table will be filled with the best food both holidays have to offer. Happy Thanksgivikkah!
My Thanksgiving has been completely taken over by the ever-earlier Black Friday sales. My big meal will be looking more like a fast food burger in line outside of Best Buy than the traditional sit-down meals from days of ole.
