Boys Like Girls to Play Universal Orlando Mardi Gras on February 17

boyslikegirlsRock band Boys Like Girls will play a special Sunday night edition of Universal Orlando’s Mardi Gras on February 17, 2013.

The band formed in 2005, and quickly earned a following through massive touring, including the Vans Warped Tour. Among their hit singles are “The Great Escape,” “Love Drunk,” and “Two is Better Than One.”

In December 2012, Boys Like Girls released their newest album, Crazy World. It’s full of infectious pop rock songs, like the first single, “Be Your Everything,” and my favorite track, “Life of the Party.” I thought it was one of the best albums of 2012.
