Live music is a huge improvement on canned music, which takes up valuable pantry space and often spoils into noxious free jazz. Keep it fresh with today’s Groupon to see Nick Carter at the Crocodile Rock Cafe. For $15, you get one general-admission ticket for Wednesday, February 8, at 8 p.m. (up to a $31.40 value, including all Ticketmaster fees).
Singer, dancer, humanitarian, and eternal Backstreet Boy Nick Carter flies solo to the delight of worldwide fans as his I'm Taking Off tour makes its connection in Allentown. With Nick’s strong, soulful croon and ability to ice-skate on melted wood, his talents have endured across two centuries. Persevering in a land where former teen idols surrender their talents to the fame goblin, Nick's latest venture, I'm Taking Off, finds the artist maturing without losing his youthful gait, catapulting voice, and steely Medusa gaze. With a hot stack of new tracks, Nick rouses fans with up-tempo pop and moistens the dance floor with tear-jerking ballads during an unflappably joyous performance. Igniting the night with larger-than-life panache, rising star and avid gamer Guinevere charges the Crocodile Rock Cafe's stage with her unique brand of frilly, sarcastic, and contagious "dark pop," and DJ Duo and the Midi Mafia mix, scratch, and then play dance music.
