Paramore frontwoman Hayley Williams burst onto the Madison Square Garden stage Wednesday night, sporting her trademark orange tresses and a black leather jacket with the words "Grow Up" plastered on the back. "Grow Up" is the name of the band's set opener on their Self-Titled tour, but it is also indicative of the process that the band has had to go through the past few years, with long-standing members Josh and Zac Farro parting ways in 2010. A headlining show at MSG may have seemed a far-off notion then, but with a new lineup in place—Jeremy Davis and Taylor York round out the trio with the rocksteady Williams—and a chart-topping album in tow, the band brought a forceful energy to its Garden performance. Williams was her usual hard-charging self, dancing and kicking her way across the stage, and, at one point, warning the crowd that "As long as my fist stays in the air, your mouth stays open" (unofficially, it was roughly 20 seconds). The band threw in a few surprises, including a guest appearance from the Fordham High School of the Arts choir on new single "Ain't It Fun." Earlier in the evening's triple bill, California indie-popsters Hellogoodbye and Canadian synth-rock band Metric played energetic supporting sets.
