Free Paramore Concert!
Two weeks ago I went Tilley's which is a bar right off campus. Every Thursday night they have Buzz night which is sponsored by a local radio station Buzz 99.9. They always have free pizza (my main reason for going) and fun games with prizes. I decided to sign up for the frozen T-Shirt contest. This consists of two people being given folded frozen shirts and they have a contest to see who can put it on first. My friend Jenna was the other person picked but I ended up winning and got tickets to see Paramore in Montreal. I had an extra ticket and decided to take my friend Justin since the whole reason I signed up was so that he might be able to go.
The next week our friend Sarah won tickets but couldn't go so Jenna ended up taking them along with our friend Kristen. Just like that we had a group of four people to go on a road trip to Montreal together. The concert was on a Monday so we drove up after class and drove back down after the show. Since Montreal is less than two hours away from campus it wasn't a bad drive. It was a bit of an adventure though since I was using my iPhone for directions and forgot that once we got to Canada I would have to pay for data. So we turned off the directions and just followed signs. Luckily Montreal is a major city and the Bell Centre is a big arena so we were able to find it without too much trouble.
The show was awesome! Haley Williams has an amazing voice and really showed it off. They did all their big hits from past albums and played a lot from their new ones as well. I think "Ain't it Fun" is my new favorite song by them. For that song they brought out a choir which added a whole new dimension to the song. They also covered Landslide which I was not expecting but it was really good.
I couldn't think of a better way to spend a Monday night even if I was pretty tired the next day. It made this week go by really fast since after classes on Monday felt like a weekend again. It was a great trip and it also turns out that the four of us are all roomies for our spring break cruise so it was a nice pre-cruise trip. I'll post more about that later but that should be a blast as well.
