Hello Partners!

I am thrilled to announce that on Wednesday, July 16 in Washington, D.C., Paramore and Neon Trees will be headlining the WPC 2014 Partner Celebration. We’ll be having a “party in the park” adjacent to the Walter E. Washington Convention Center, featuring both bands in an outdoor festival-style setting.

Every year, the WPC Partner Celebration culminates a week of incredible experiences for partners. We couldn’t be more excited for this year’s festivities. This will be an unforgettable night of live music, great street food, and entertainment with your colleagues and new friends! Whether you want to rock out, relax, or meet new people, you won’t want to miss this entertainment lineup.

After forming Paramore ten years ago in Nashville, the 3x-Grammy-nominated rock group—comprised of Hayley Williams, Taylor York and Jeremy Davis—released their fourth studio album “Paramore” in 2013. The self-titled album debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 Albums Chart and was named “Best Rock Album” by Entertainment Weekly. Paramore features the Top 10 radio hit and platinum single “Still Into You” along with “Ain’t It Fun,” their first top 5 hit at both Pop and Hot AC radio. “Paramore” follows the success of the band’s gold-certified debut “All We Know Is Falling” in 2005, followed by a string of platinum and gold singles including “Misery Business,” “Crushcrushcrush,” and “That’s What You Get” from 2007’s platinum-certified “Riot!”, “Decode” from 2008’s “Twilight” soundtrack, “The Only Exception” from 2009’s platinum “Brand New Eyes.” Paramore has performed on a series of arena tours, including their most recent headline trek on “The Self-Titled Tour” in 2013 with their first headline show at Madison Square Garden, the 2010 “Honda Civic Tour,” and multiple visits to Europe, Asia, Australia, New Zealand, and South America. The group also embarked on their first headline concert cruise ParaHOY in March 2014.” 
Neon Trees was founded in 2005 in Salt Lake City, Utah, by Tyler Glenn (lead vocals and keyboard). Other members of the band include Chris Allen (guitar, vocals), Branden Campbell (bass guitar, vocals), and Elaine Bradley (drums, percussion, vocals). They shot to national fame after a 2008 tour with The Killers. Neon Trees’s new album “Pop Psychology” features bright melodies, huge choruses and witty lyrics about the challenges of finding love in the digital age. Recent singles and radio hits include “Everybody Talks” and “Sleeping with a Friend.”
