OOAH from The Glitch Mob at Lollapalooza 2011

The Glitch Mob were featured on Carson Daily this week.  Having known the Mob for a while now, it was a proud moment for me and the bass music scene that I’ve come to know and love.  The always handle themselves with pure class and continually push back the fame and glory to their fans and stay focused on the joys of being creative and being excellent at everything they do.  Their story of helping a paralyzed man to walk again, literally brought tears to my eyes.  Wow. I can’t imagine a better feeling than giving inspiration to others through music.

This week, The Glitch Mob took a break from the recording of their sophomore LP to spend time catching up with Carson Daly, who found this story to be an elevating tale of triumph over hardship. At their home away from home, The Airliner (The Venue for Low End Theory), The Glitch Mob discuss the creation of their music, the special relationship they have with their fans, playing live, and how their music helped to heal a man named Grant Korgan.
As derived from LA Weekly:  Two years ago, Grant Korgan was in a terrible snowmobile accident and his doctors told him he’d never walk again. However, Korgan rejected that prognosis.
Korgan’s rehabilitation was immediate, intense, and fueled by The Glitch Mob. Before the accident, The Glitch Mob’s music had enhanced his marathon kayaking and snowmobile treks. After, their compositions gained a profound resonance, particularly after one of Korgan’s close friends wrote the group about his situation. When he returned home from the hospital, there was a care package of signed Glitch Mob gear, which served as a constant companion during his recovery.
“Music feeds the fire, fuels the foot and gets the legs jumping. Our generation has been given the gift to have powerful motivating music in our ears at all times.”
– Grant Korgan
“We were so humbled when he told us our music helped him get through therapy and overcome a tremendous life challenge. There’s no way to describe the feeling you get when you realize that your music has helped make a real difference in someone’s life.”
– The Glitch Mob

Check out the pictures I took at Lollapalooza this year.  Some great ones of the Mob, Pretty Lights and Deadmau5.  The mud party was pretty insane too.
Past interview I did with The Glitch Mob in Austin, Tx, discussing “Drink The Sea”, artistic integrity, their live show setup, and the selling of their music.
