It doesn’t take much to get booted from the Clermont Lounge.
If memory serves, I was once asked to leave for telling Blondie the truth about poetry.
Mumford & Sons, perhaps the most reviled successful band in the world, was ejected from the Ponce strip club Tuesday night, according to TMZ. There’s even a grainy non-action video.
Anonymous “strip club sources” say things went awry for the British folk pop act when — after performing hours earlier at Centennial Park – singer Ben Lovett took to the lounge’s karaoke stage and began singing the songs he should be tired of already.
His bandmates whipped out their cellphones and began shooting video, which is pretty much a no-no in any strip club I have woken up in.
The mood really turned sour when the DJ turned down the music and told everyone to put their phones away. This allegedly “ruined” Lovett’s performance and the band began cussing out the strip club staff.
They were in such a hurry to get out of there that someone tripped over a banjo and accidentally wrote the next Mumford & Sons album, according to some reports.
