The 5 Spot – Flummox
“Flummox” is a word that one may use to describe the feeling of being perplexed, bewildered, or confused. When used in a sentence, it’s used like, “It might be quite flummoxing to some that around 2pm on every Tuesday, I stand naked on my lawn & bathe my bare skin in carrot juice while barking at god.” Or another example might be along the lines of, “I am sorry if the idea of teaching small children how to ride warthogs flummoxes you, but I believe it to be the most viable mode of transportation for ones so small.” This is the same kind of chaotic energy that the band (the one known as “Flummox”) has decided to harness for their outrageous stage-shows & absurdly genre-fluid sounds; and they don’t even have to bark at god about it.
Formed in 2012 in a downtrodden trailer off of a rural Tennessean highway, Flummox has earned a reputation over the years for making music & performing in such an eccentric way that has usually left them forever haunting the weird recesses of their audiences’ minds. After word of mouth mystique reached their ears, Needlejuice Records (Lemon Demon, King Gizzard & the Lizard Wizard, Plasma Canvas, MC Lars) signed the band in 2019. The band immediately released the double LP, “Intellectual Hooliganism,” followed by two EPs, “Sabbat Worship” & “In Hindsight,” in 2020. While the global pandemic has kept them away from the public stages, Flummox has continued to work remotely on music for two upcoming Needlejuice releases.
For the first time inside of a venue since before the lockdown, Flummox will be performing a special live-streamed set on stageit.com at The 5 Spot in Nashville, TN. This way you can view their shenanigans and listen to their set from the comfort and safety of your home. All you have to do is make an account on the stageit website, get a ticket, and enjoy the show from the bright screen pointed at your face. This will be Flummox’s first performance in a live stage setting in well over a year, and we will deliver a most memorable, intimate, & chaotically special show for those who join in on our fun.
It’s time to get flummoxed once again.
