Cold Blue Mountain: NPR, Tiny Desk and World Domination

Do you remember last summer when I posted the blog about my friends in the band Cold Blue Mountain? When they made a video and let me cook AND be in it?

So.much.fun. Beef, beer and bikinis!

They did it again! You see NPR is having a contest – the winner gets to play in the NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert Series, so CBM took the plunge and entered! Guess what?

NPR even tweeted at Cold Blue Mountain, it was pretty exciting.

They were the first metal entry and actually made it on NPR’s music page! Talk about fame! I mean, I know I am super bias, but I think they should win (if they do win, I am so leaving the ranch to go with them I can watch! (they don’t know that yet, so shhhhhhh)).

The Tiny Desk video:

Even if they don’t win, they are still doing some pretty exciting stuff! They are about to embark on huge tour! They are leaving the safe and warm embrace of Chico, California to share their musical talents with most of the United States. I am so excited for them, but kinda bummed that they are going to be gone so long! I’m going to be lonely.

If you get the chance, I recommend you catch a show! Or at least go hang out with them. Despite this being pretty heavy screaming music, these are pretty much some of the nicest guys ever. Plus I worry about them and will need updates to make sure they are doing well, washing their socks, underwear and beards.

Cold Blue Mountain: Winter 2014 Tour

One of my most favoritist people in the whole wide world is in this band (hint, coffee, piano, beard, super talented). Actually, if you really wanna get down to it, everyone in this band is kinda amazing, very nice and super talented. Guess what? They are going on tour so if you are into nice people and angry music, you should see them! I secretly want to see the Seattle show and if I wasn’t such a broke-ass, I’d book a flight and go. If you live there, you should go and tell me all about it. And  a fun fact for you? You know that show, The Amazing Race? Yeah, Brandon (the lead singer) was on it last season (Team Beard!). Anyway check them out if you can, you’ll be glad you did.
