Paramore Set Crowd On Fire and Set Off Fire Alarm at Club Soda

Back in Montreal for the first time after last summer’s Vans Warped Tour, young Fueled By Ramen protégés Paramore nearly caused a real riot when they packed a sold-out Club Soda last night despite the current climatic conditions, and somehow managed to set off the fire alarm during the encore.

As it turned out, nothing was actually on fire, so no evacuation was necessary. Had they had to perform one, I don’t even think security would’ve been able to force eight hundred Hayley Williams-starved kids out on the snowy street.

Love them, hate them, never heard of them, you’ve got to give Paramore credit for filing a venue that size without any touring support. Last night’s lone opener, local indie five-piece Bad Flirt, was forgettable at best, if not tedious and more than just mildly repetitive.

At only 18, I believe miniature flame-haired front-lady Williams may just be one of the most constant and technically skilled female lead singers on the scene right now. She’s gone a long way from her ill-fitting Days Inn t-shirt days, and her rendition of songs like “Pressure” and “My Heart” off the band’s debut, All We Know Is Falling, was steady and mature, rather than innocent and naïve. Her pacing was near-stellar, and when she needed to kill time to give her bandmates time to tune, she knew exactly how to work her audience.

Paramore has been labeled “the next big thing” many times lately. Last night’s gig made me realize exactly why. These kids deserve every bit of it.
