No Need for a Baby-Sitter -- Drop the Kids Off to Owl City

It seems like, after Selena Gomez, the Owl City concert may have brought some of the youngest fans Marquee Theatre has ever seen to the venue. The tween-friendly artist's non-offensive lyrics and sugary sweet melodies sold out the spot, bringing both kids and their parents to the show--which, judging from Tweets that were posted after the concert, was still fun to see no matter how old you are.
