TMZ is reporting Mumford & Sons were kicked out of an Atlanta strip club earlier this week — but hey, hold up, it’s not as scandalous as you would think. Details are a bit sketch at the moment, but it seems they weren’t getting all Motley Crue on the girls, girls, girls of the famed Clermont Lounge. Apparently they were using their camera phones to document Mumford multi-instrumentalist Ben Lovett’s participation in karaoke night.
So even when you have a strip club, the city of Atlanta, and a “rock” band getting kicked out of an establishment where women are dancing naked, Mumford & Sons still find a way to bitch the story out. We’re unsure if there’s a wrong way to get kicked out of a strip club, but if you’re a band, this is probably it.
Here’s official word according to TMZ. We’ll wait for the follow-up and whether they were snapping pics of dancers or just douching around on themselves. Either way — no cameras in the strip club, boys.
NO CAMERAS … it’s one of the biggest strip club rules there is (after “no touching”) … and folk band Mumford & Sons allegedly violated it big time in Atlanta Tuesday night — resulting in the entire group getting the boot.
Here’s how it started: the band had just performed at ATL’s Centennial Olympic Park and decided to hit up the famous Clermont Lounge to celebrate. It was karaoke night, and we’re told band member Ben Lovett took the stage to belt out a few tunes.
According to strip club sources, Ben’s bandmates decided to document the occasion with their camera phones, and strip club officials freaked out, demanding they put their phones away (per the club’s strict rules).
We’re told the DJ had to lower the music several times to ask the band members to put their cameras away, and that really pissed off Ben … who loudly accused the DJ of ruining his song.
Our sources say the other band members chimed in at that point, cursing out the strip club staff — so the club manager kicked the whole group out.
