Pink Mountaintops performed a new tune, “You Can Dream,” at FYF Fest in Los Angeles back in September. Thanks to Sammy Warren for filming this! The band is going on a short west coast tour later this month before heading to Europe - check out the dates on our tour page.

Steve McBean’s Pink Mountaintops will be traveling across Europe this November as a duo – he’ll be joined by American musician Gregg Foreman (Cat Power, Delta 72).
If you didn’t catch this earlier it’s worth mentioning again – Pink Mountaintops perform as “Metal Problem” in the new movieEverything Louder Than Everything Else and play a new song that totally rules called “Through All the Worry.”
Steve McBean and his band, Pink Mountaintops, were cast and appear as the band Metal Problem in the new film by Vancouver director Rob Leickner, Everything Louder Than Everything Else. The movie follows a woman who owns a recording studio, and Metal Theory records the song “Through All The Worry,” a new song by Pink Mountaintops. Steve McBean also performs in the movie (with lines and everything!). I totally buy that he’s in a rock band.
Okkervil River and Roky Erickson played an Ice Cream Social to possibly their youngest audience to date (although sharing music with youth is a passion Will Sheff has shown before). Sponsored by Ice Cream Man and the FYF Festival, the event was open to all ages, and the kids came out in numbers, digging into free scoops of ice cream as they listened to Roky and Okkervil River perform. While some seemed more interested in the ice cream than the music, there were definitely some discerning listeners in the bunch. When the band opened up the floor for a Q&A, Roky and crew fielded such questions as “Why is the Zombie song so loud?” and “What’s your opinion on ukuleles?” (!) And when one little girl was asked “is this your first rock show?” her mother quickly secured her child’s hipster cred by interjecting “oh, she went to see Patti Smith,” discerning indeed! All and all this was a wonderful wonderful event that makes all those dark bar shows drab in comparison and begs the question of why more rock n’ roll can’t be a family affair?
