"Art + Friends" (read "Art & Friends") was an event hosted by Paramore as a "celebration of Nashville music, art, and community" that happened on September 7, 2018, at the Nashville Municipal Auditorium, Nashville, TN. It was also the last show of the After Laughter touring cycle.

"We are pretty close to wrapping up our touring cycle for After Laughter and heading home. So we thought, 'Instead of a throwing a homecoming party for ourselves, why don’t we throw a party for the whole city?'. We want to celebrate our hometown and the fast-growing, wacky, and wonderful alternative music and arts community of Nashville. We want to show you what our fine city has to offer, outside of bachelorette parties and karaoke bars. So here’s your official invite to Art + Friends. We (Paramore) are gonna play a big rock gig, along with some of our friends - it’s a solid lineup of all Nashville based artists. Plus, there will be tons of local art to see and experience, local independent business owners showing off their wares, and some local food & bevs.

Take it from a group of kids who grew up right here in this city - the new Nashville is definitely alright with us. We’re excited to give everyone a chance to experience Nashville the way we do...

P.S. how many times can YOU say Nashville in a DIY press release? Probably not this many..."

- Hayley Williams
