The 88 Meet Your Mother

04/06/06
.
(It's Alive) Los Angeles based-band The 88 will appear on the hit CBS sitcom How I Met Your Mother as themselves in an episode entitled “Best Prom Ever” airing Monday, May 8, 2006 at 8:30 p.m. PST/EST. Series executive producers/creators, Craig Thomas and Carter Bays sought out The 88 for this episode because they are fans of the unsigned band.

In “Best Prom Ever,” Marshall (JASON SEGEL) wants The 88 to perform at his wedding reception but his fiancι, Lily (ALYSON HANNIGAN), insists on seeing the band perform live before considering them. As a result, Marshall and Lily’s only option is to crash a high school prom where The 88 is performing. The 88 ultimately secure the wedding booking after playing a cover of couple’s favorite song, “Good Feeling” by the Violent Femmes. This episode also showcases the tracks “Hide Another Mistake” and “Jesus is Good” from The 88’s sophomore album OVER AND OVER

As they continue adding TV and film credits to their resume, The 88 are celebrating their newfound success by hitting the road with singer/songwriter Matt Costa for a three-week national tour beginning April 30 in Phoenix, AZ at The Rhythm Room.
