This hilarious bit of news is being picked up by everyone from Creative Loafing to TMZ, but it’s worth noting that the original scoop came from Starcasm, whose source was none other than Athens’ Uncle Pizza, aka Jubee of Jubee and the Morning After. Because he was there, for some reason.
After earnest, old-timey-ish folk-rock outfit Mumford & Sons played Centennial Olympic Park Tuesday night, they did what all celebrities visiting Atlanta do: they ate at Antico went to the Clermont Lounge, that dimly lit bastion of middle-aged stripperdom.
When band member Ben Lovett got up on stage to participate in the club’s famed karaoke night, the rest of the Sons began snapping pictures—a no-no at the Clermont. As you can (kinda? maybe?) see in the video below, they were promptly ejected from the establishment.
Lesson learned: Don’t snap photos at the Clermont Lounge. Better yet, don’t do anything a Mumford & Son would do.
