Ah, the flip phone era. Boy bands topped the charts, Outkast kept things fresh and clean, and Destiny's Child were still together and wearing whimsical outfits designed by Tina Knowles. Club Flip Phone brings this glorious decade spanning 1996 to 2006 to life once a month at First Avenue in Minneapolis, drawing crowds of 1200 and more. With themes like a Britney Spears pajama party, Mariah's Butterfly Jamboree, and "Bed, Bath, and Beyoncé," Flip Phone is more about keeping things fun than aggressively shopping the meat market--which is good because desperation isn't a cute look on anyone.
