Backstreet Boy's blonde heartthrob Nick Carter has just announced news that has surely made more than a few girls around the world squeal, giggle, or cry with delight. The band, he said in a recent interview with ET at the premiere for his zombie western, Dead 7, might have a concert residency in Las Vegas. 

"It would definitely have to be a very big and spectacular show," he said. "Thankfully, we have a good catalog, so we can perform all of our hits. That could take up a lot of the show." 

Carter said the boy band has a deal with Live Nation, the touring company, and that they just signed a nine show deal as a "test run in Vegas." 

Both Carter and bandmate Kevin Richardson have also confirmed — again, to millions of fans' delight — that Backstreet Boys has a new album coming out. 

"We're definitely in the studio, recording a brand new album," Richardson said at the premiere. "We're gonna do a world tour first." 

Happy Monday!

  • clipping at Brava Theater Sept. 11
    Sub Pop recording artists 'clipping.' brought their brand of noise-driven experimental hip hop to the closing night of 2016's San Francisco Electronic Music Fest this past Sunday. The packed Brava Theater hosted an initially seated crowd that ended the night jumping and dancing against the front of the stage. The trio performed a set focused on their recently released Sci-Fi Horror concept album, 'Splendor & Misery', then delved into their dancier and more aggressive back catalogue, and recent single 'Wriggle'. Opening performances included local experimental electronic duo 'Tujurikkuja' and computer music artist 'Madalyn Merkey.'"
