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.
