Flobots Invite Me Backstage

Peebles and McLachlan Backstage with the Flobots
The Flobots, a popular rock/hip-hop band with extremely active ties to activist organizations such as Flobots.org, their own non-profit dedicated to helping Denver schoolchildren through the utilization of community engagement, education, and music, and GivingFirst.org, an organization run by the Community First Foundation to support student scholarships and access to technology, welcomed me backstage after their October 27, 2012 concert in Lansing, Michigan, to discuss leadership and meet with the band members.

We were thrilled by both the concert and the opportunity to speak, at length, with all members of the band.  I'd like to extend a special thank you to Flobots Tour Manager Brigitte Wright of Brigitte Wright Management for the invitation.
