Mesmerizing Compassion with Paramore’s Tour Two

Photos by Pooja Pasupula . I’ve always made a distinction between artists: there are singers, and there are performers. Like the whole “not every rectangle is a square” line, not every performer is a singer. Going into the Ovens Auditorium, I expected Paramore to be performers: give you a good show, a lot of jumping and […]

Charlotte N.C. — The prog-rock group Papadosio played to an enthusiastic crowd late Thursday evening at the Underground here in Charlotte.

Wale and D.R.A.M. Illuminate Homecoming
