So ... BBMak is back together and coming to Austin

So ... BBMak is back together and coming to Austin

Eric Webb

They just don't make boy bands like they used to. On the whole, this is probably a good thing.

However, I challenge you to even for a second try to shade the absolute bops that some of the hair-gelled hunks of the late 1990s/early 2000s pumped out. Most people in that age bracket were concerned with the great Backstreet Boys/'N Sync divide, but every now and then a second-tier (or third-tier) boy band invaded "Total Request Live" and the hearts of the nation.

All that's to say that BBMak has reunited, and their new tour is swinging through Austin.

The English pop trio's is coming to Stubb's indoor May 21. Tickets go on sale Friday. They've also got a new album coming in April.

You could say ... they're back here, baby.
