Nicholas Alexander Brown
Music Division, Library of Congress

Ever wonder how the Library of Congress captures popular culture? One way is through archiving boy band memorabilia. The Music Division's collections are a hidden trove of books and music related to popular male groups, from the throwback version of barbershop quartets, to recent phenomena like One Direction and the Backstreet Boys.

Seating is general admission and patrons with a ticket will be seated on a first-come, first-served basis. Five minutes before the event starts any unclaimed seats will be available for patrons without a ticket. Patrons are encouraged to arrive half an hour before the event, as extra tickets may be available due to returns.
