Paramore brings it taut hooks, punchy songs to Wilkins Friday

The Tennessee quintet Paramore has earned its MTV and” Twilight” soundtrack prominence with constant touring, taut hooks and the feisty sex appeal of powerhouse redhead Hayley Williams on vocals.

The music is on the blurred line between grunge and emo, and while the band is following a timeworn template that features precious few surprises, its punchy songs are pleasantly forceful and well-honed.

Check the group out here doing “Misery Business” and on MySpace here for tracks from their latest album.

Paramore at Roy Wilkins Auditorium (moved from the now-closed Myth), Friday, Nov. 6 at 7:30 p.m., tickets $27.50.
