A night with Austin, Carly Rae, & Boys Like Girls

Friday, July 20, 2012

Last night, I was lucky enough to attent Pop Tart's "Crazy Good Summer Concert" featuring heartthrob Austin Mahone, up-in-coming star Carly Rae Jepsen, and pop-rock band Boys Like Girls.

Held at the Charter One Pavilion on Chicago's Museum Campus, Pop Tart's hosted a concert for the first 4,000 fans to reserve tickets on Facebook. Besides the musical performers, the night featured comedic hosts from Second City, a Pop Tarts red carpet where concert-goers could take photos with their favorite Pop Tarts mascot, a photo booth, and other fun activities for the wait in between performers. 

The concert started off with Austin Mahone, singing several of his most popular songs, showing off his dance moves, and singing to three lucky girls as they sat on stage.

Carly Rae charmed the audience with her bubbly personality, fun & flirty lyrics, and even gave the audience an exclusive performance of one of her new songs. Of course, she finished her set with the ever popular Call Me Maybe where she invited guests on stage to sing along with her.

I've been a Boys Like Girls fan since I was in middle school and have seen them several times in concert. They never cease to entertain me! This pop-rock group always knows how to win over the audience with their catchy songs and energetic performance.

I want to give a HUGE thank you to Kate Manofsky, assistant account executive at Krispr Communications, for setting me up with a media pass that allowed me to take photos in the photo pit right in front of the performers. It was an amazing experience and a great taste of what a future career is PR and media would be like!

I was able to take hundreds of amazing photos from the photo pit in front of the stage. Here are a few of my favorites!
