Mumford and Sons came to Charlotte, NC the other night and left behind their entire bankroll from the show. They donated it to a local LGBT organization in response to the NC House Bill 2. Shutter 16’s homebase is Charlotte and we are directly affected daily and shocked at this abysmal bill. We want to personally thank Mumford and Sons and The Filthy Six for the support, and to all bands (no matter if they do not play here due to the bill or raise-up and help us rally locked arm-and-arm.) All ways are helping us gain awareness of this cruel 100-year-backstep in our home town.
To celebrate a lighter note, we stepped out on the town after the Mumford show at TWC Arena. We were with some of Mumford’s travelling back-up band that make up the UK outfit The Filthy Six held a Mumford and Sons after party at The Evening Muse. Photographer Alex Cason was there to snap some stellar images. Check out the gallery, and catch them if you can sometime soon!
