Before the folk rock band The Lumineers released their newest album, Cleopatra, in April, they played a series of secret shows. Emphasis here on "secret."
"There was a large concern about the album being sort-of released via grainy video and leaked out online," said Wesley Schultz, the band's lead singer.
So the band decided to lock up people's phones — not take them away, exactly, but just lock them up for the show. Like a timeout.
