NKOTBSB = New Kids on the Block + Backstreet Boys
While I was very excited for the concert I'll be the first to admit that I was hesitant about the whole thing and if I was still going to enjoy the music that I originally loved over 20 years ago.
9 year old Alexa looooooooved boy bands, 31 year old Alexa, not so much.
Until I heard NKTOB's first notes...
I was immediately transported back to when the only thing I had to do in life was choreograph dance moves with my childhood friends to step by step and day dream about what it would be like to kiss Jordan Knight.
Thus was my life, and for three hours tonight thus was my life again and I couldn't stop dancing.
Yes, Backstreet Boys were there, but I'm 95% positive Nick Carter was flat out wasted on stage. You see, I never was a big BSB fan, by the time they were really popular I had moved onto jam bands and smoking things in college.
But that doesn't mean that in 2011 I wasn't singing along to their songs - both bands brought it tonight.
And when NKOTB sang tonight, they were singing to this girl....
10-year-old me (yes, that's really me) on my birthday with my totally rad NKOTB cake. I'm positive that I was the happiest girl on the planet that day, 7/2/90.
Thanks for the concert and memories guys, I'll never forget the image of Donnie's crotch thrusting like a Chippendale dancer on the jumbo-tron, it was a great time had by all.
NKOTB 4 EVA.
