Pop-tart, Carly Rae Jepsen, whom we all know from the anthem made popular by the stereos of Jeeps everywhere and all gay bars, “Call Me, Maybe,”, is coming to chicago. Carly is hitting the town a week from today, July 19 to play a free concert at Charter One Pavilion on Northerly Island. The first 4,000 fans to go to Pop-Tarts' (the concert's sponsor) Facebook page and register will be emailed a code redeemable for two tickets to the concert. [Tribune]
