Anyone who follows us on Twitter knows we're obsessed with this band. Like, Backstreet-Boys-in-the-TRL-studio-screaming-fan obsessed. We almost got wisked away by a flash flood at Lollapalooza catching their set, baked them a killer macaroni-and-cheese during their first stateside trip because we wanted them to adore Nueva York and literally yelped out loud yesterday when we heard one of their new songs being used in a commercial for our (well, my) large-schnozed love Owen Wilson's new movie.
Speaking of things we adore as well as those new diddies, we stopped by Knitting Factory back in August to catch them play those tunes live, and it was just as fantastic as we'd hoped. While we're not sure how long we'll have to wait in the middle of Times Square screaming upwards at 1515 Broadway to profess our love for these five, the amount of time that we need to put on the clock for the rest of you to get mesmerized comes in at just under 5 minutes, the proper amount of time each of these two videos from the show will set you back.
Coh-winky-dink? We think not. Take a goose and a gander at these slices of heaven, and keep an ear out for their return to some sets of cities next month. You know we'll be there.
