Before the likes of Justin Bieber, tweenage girls all across the country swooned over the musical stylings of boy bands. A phenomena that lasted from the late 80's through the late 90's, dozens of such groups were manufactured from the machine of Mtv and danced their way into their hearts of spazzy adolescent girls everywhere. And this Wednesday night, the boy band pairing of New Kids on the Block and Backstreet Boys (a.k.a. “NKOTBSB”) will be storming the Yum Center to unleash their pop fury onto Louisville.
Fresh off their appearance of The Today Show and Dancing With the Stars, the pulsating pop pas-de-deux of NKOTBSB is smack-dab in the middle of their national tour. The tour is promoting their joint compilation album, fittingly entitled “NKOTBSB.” Nineties-nostalgia seekers will bask in the awesomeness of this blast from the past. I'll be at the Yum Center rocking out in my Hypercolor t-shirt, Scrunchie and K-Swiss shoes. What do you think are my chances of sneaking in some Zima?
