To most people, a Tuesday may seem like another obstacle hindering one’s way to the glorious finale that we call Friday. But to some of us, a Tuesday is another opportunity for a binge drinker, like myself, to live out one of her life’s fantasies: dousing herself in the love sweat of Mr. Aaron Carter.
I know what you’re thinking. Aaron who? Isn’t that the guy from Lizzie McGuire? Didn’t he sleep with Lindsay Lohan? Wasn’t that the guy who busted Shaquille O’Neal’s balls on a basketball court? Was he in Shazaam?
No you guys, no matter how much Aaron’s career may have fluctuated over the years, he is not guilty of playing in that God-awful movie (LOOKING AT YOU SHAQ).
Aaron carter was the teen sensation/heartthrob/crush of every girl from the nineties. We either outright displayed our undying lover for him or we publicly scorned him while sneakily watching his “Oh Aaron” video in the comfort of our own homes at night. His boyish good looks and soulful brown eyes warmed my cold, calculating heart.
Then there was meth.
Now Aaron looks like hard times hit him in the face, but he is still quite the performer, as demonstrated by him in his current “Aaron’s Party Never Stopped” tour. I have to say that he left me speechless. My friends and I had been planning this excursion for a couple on months, knowing good and well that we were preparing ourselves to get completely drunk on a Tuesday evening and bask in the nostalgia of seeing Aaron Carter on stage. We would be living out our preteen dreams. Swoon.
I personally thought that I would get there, drunk, laugh at how silly this whole “career comeback” thing would seem, demand he sing Aaron’s Party, and then make fun of it mercilessly for weeks to come.
Aaron surprised me.
He was FUCKING AMAZING!!!
The dance moves, the rifts, the bare chest, the grinding on stage. Omg this guys is the male version of Queen Bey. I was speechless. When he got on stage, girls started elbowing there way to the front and I even saw some guys tearing up in the crowd. Where the hell was I??
Aaron performed some of the sweet ballads from his yester-years and even threw in some new material. He more than made up for the fake ass John Mayer and slightly more coked up Paramore imitations that took the stage before him. My friends and I left the bar completely blown away. Two of my friends were even talking about pre-ordering his album. One said she would get it on VINYL if it was available!!
Just to paint a picture of this, my friends frequently don spikes, flannel shirts, combat boots, converse, boat shoes and all black everything. Not the type of people you would think would invest time into an Aaron Carter concert.
I just want to say to you Mr. Aaron Carter, that you are a beautiful, talented, shapely man who just gained himself five giggly fans that are perhaps to old to be indulging in your music, but don’t give a rat’s ass. Love you.
I’ll try to post some footage of the concert later, but in the mean time…
Here’s a picture of this AMAZING night: He’s pulling a Bieber and taking pics on a girl’s phone
Go get tickets to Aaron’s After Party Tour guys, you won’t be disappointed. This is coming from a completely unbiased person who has no affiliation with Aaron whatsoever.
College Candy just did a review of the concert as well. It was different date, at a different venue and in a different state. Molly, the writer, apparently enjoyed herself a lot less than I did. Before you go buy your tickets make sure you have a well rounded view of what your concert experience may be.
