Experience pop nostalgia with Aaron Carter this weekend

It’s not impossible for celebrities to make career comebacks. Bands like Green Day and Limp Bizkit have attempted this feat with varying levels of success. Former kid rapper Aaron Carter seems to be looking to do the same. Catch him at the Blue Moose Tap House this Saturday, Feb. 28 at 7 p.m.

Beginning his career in 1997 at the age of 10, Aaron Carter got his big break in 2001 with the release of his album, Aaron’s Party. Anyone with any bubble-gum pop nostalgia will recognize the dancey drum beat from his single, “I Want Candy.” His era of pop music might not be for everyone, but it’s pretty endearing to hear him as a 13-year-old, rapping about throwing parties while mom and dad are gone.

The singer’s latest musical endeavor took off in 2014 with the release of “Ooh Wee” featuring rapper Pat SoLo. It’s a more mature Carter, but he definitely hasn’t lost his ability to get a crowd moving.
