Backstreet Boys+Avril Lavigne
The ‘90s and the early ‘00s were a golden age of pop music. We could feel larger than life while our female protagonists rocked ties like nobody’s business. We could worship Blink-182 and unironically appreciate the dick humor in classic teenage films like American Pie. Those days might be behind us, but with Backstreet Boys and Avril Lavigne sharing a bill, you have to wonder just how far removed the past really is. We say embrace it, go to this show, and contemplate starting a tribute band called “Sk8r Boys.” The world is ready.
