Admitting that you love boy bands is something only done only under the heaviest cloak of secrecy, after a few cocktails. Admitting you like the musical stylings of a boy band member’s younger brother who peaked 15 years ago, at the age of 10, thanks solely to his brother’s name recognition, is done only in after-hours basement parties with other like-minded social outcasts. Given these well-established societal etiquette standards, it's fitting that Aaron Carter, brother of Backstreet Boy Nick Carter, headlines a performance at the Federal Underground—the stage they set up in the basement of an old bank later converted to a restaurant/bar. Let’s all hope the air conditioning is working, because it’s going to get pretty hot down there as Mr. Carter blasts his hits from the year 2000, like “Aaron’s Party” and “That’s How I Beat Shaq.”
