If you’ve been looking for a way to express your inner preteen recently, or if you just want to listen to some classic childhood throwbacks, then head over to Toad’s Place on Feb. 27 for the one-time teenage sensation Aaron Carter.

Carter, who has not released an album with new songs since 2002, is more recently known for participating in the “Dancing with the Stars” reality television show in 2009, coming in an astounding fifth place. He also starred in the off-Broadway production of “The Fantasticks” in late 2011.

You may remember Carter for his popular hits “I Want Candy” or “That’s How I Beat Shaq,” both of which were on his most successful album to date, “Aaron’s Party (Come Get It),” which sold over 3 million copies in 2000. Carter also had the fortune of dating both Lindsay Lohan and Hilary Duff, leaving Duff for Lohan at the tender age of 14.

Many might say that Carter peaked too soon — we Yalies, however, expected Carter to arrive here soon enough. After all, all roads do lead to Toad’s.
