How come yer ears look all stupid and stuff?

How come yer ears look all stupid and stuff?

At upcoming shows, you might find yourself wondering why we now have strange, multicolored thingies in our ears. Well, we done growns up. We are making the leap to using in-ear monitors in an effort to make our stage volume a little quieter. It will also allow us to hear the things we need to hear a little bit better, as we are able to change what we hear on the fly via our iPhones. Fancy, huh? We promise this will make us sound at least 9% better, although, we’ll still probably play that damn Rick Springfield song from time to time, so try not to judge us too harshly. And, since many famous artists, like those below, use these devices, by the transitive property we can conclude that FlashMob! will now find instant fame and fortune. Science,...

FlashMob! featured in MSP Weddings Magazine

Well, we like to think that we’re awesome. Someone told us once, so we’re sticking with it. But, Minneapolis St. Paul Magazine thought we were awesome enough to be included in their “The New Face of Wedding Bands” article in their latest Weddings issue. Joe Lover, lead guitarist and chief lawn mower, talked about how important energy is, as well as the need for a memorable experience not only for the bride and groom, but for the wedding party and their guests. Get out there, grab the current issue, and read some words! It’s good for you, similar to carrots and reality TV.  ...
FlashMob! plays Canada, ehhh?

FlashMob! plays Canada, ehhh?

Sure, we’ve played all over the midwest. Exotic locations such as Chippewa Falls (oooh!) and Des Moines (ahhh!) have become the norm for us. You can get a little jaded living this posh lifestyle. And, to make matters worse, FlashMob! has now officially gone international. Yup. We’re just that huge and famous and rad and good at microwaving burritos. FlashMob! headlined a big ol’ outdoor festival just north of the border in the lovely town of Fort Frances. The people were kind, the reception was warm, and the steak dinner was steaky. Seeing throngs of legally drunk 19 year olds took some getting used to (they’re just kids, damn it!), but we’re working on it. We also visited a Tim Horton’s at 3am. For those who are unfamiliar, it’s basically the greatest post-show food source on earth. America, get your head in the game and ask Tim to wear some red, white and blue. Sadly, no one said, “hoser.” Not once. Ugh. Was the trip even worth it? I just don’t know.         Photos by Clint...

Like a phoenix, rising from the ashes

Like a phoenix, rising from the ashes

Back at Babe’s Halloween show, the unthinkable happened. My sweet, sweet Les Paul Standard Faded Tobacco Sunburst bounced off its guitar stand and landed face down. I heard the thump, and was afraid to turn around to look at it. Sure enough. The headstock was snapped. I thought for sure she was a goner. Well, that’s when the wizards at Willies Guitar Shop in St. Paul stepped in. Steve, a local legend in the guitar fixing biz, brought it back from the dead. Now, stronger than ever, it just has a hairline crack. It plays just like it did before. Thanks...
