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...

FlashMob! at Babe’s in Lakeville TONIGHT: Lakeville Named New Orleans’ Sister City

FlashMob! at Babe’s in Lakeville TONIGHT: Lakeville Named New Orleans’ Sister City

Ok, that’s not true. But, are the two cities that different? In New Orleans tonight, people are letting loose, enjoying a few drinks, dancing to great music with friends, and getting partially naked for cheap, probably toxic beads. Remind you of anywhere? YES! Babe’s in Lakeville tonight! Come prepared to get a little crazy and maybe win a prize or two. And, Collin has promised to do another one of his sensual readings. This week’s novel? “Pleasuring the Pirate,” by Emily...
The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire! No, seriously, the roof is actually on fire!

The roof, the roof, the roof is on fire! No, seriously, the roof is actually on fire!

“I’ll play along with this charade That doesn’t seem to be a reason to change You know I feel so dirty when they start talking cute I wanna tell her that I love her but the point is probably moot ‘Cause she’s watching him with those eyes And she’s lovin’ him with that body, I just know it And he’s holding her in his arms late, late at night” — Rick Springfield, on fire safety 2013 is off to a roarin’ start, folks, let me tell you. It’s been a few weeks since I last updated all of you on the reconstruction of the band’s kick-ass RV, but we’ve had some issues that required attention. A brief recap: Band drives too many cars/SUVs to its gigs causing for the rapid meltdown of the polar ice caps Band sells soul, plays whichever gigs pay the most money, including something called “Anoka County Gun Show” Band sets out to procure proper “wheels” RV is found; RV is purchased Band eschews finding professional car repairmen and attempts to fix RV on their own “Things happened” – see below Band is royally f-cked! Everyone up-to-speed? Good. As last reported Josh and Plete were hard at work shaping “The Executive” RV into something more reflecting of the band’s status as a “Top 5 Must See Band in Minnesota.” (See Vita.Mn page.) With Josh’s blueprints at hand and a pretty impressive project schedule laid out by Plete (he even created a BaseCamp page), construction began. Well, anyone who’s ever done home remodeling or watched HGTV’s Queer Eye for the Straight Guy knows that the first...
