bands on tumblr


CMJ Music Marathon 2014 begins today, and we have some of Tumblr’s best bloggers and visual artists covering some of our favorite new musical acts over the next week.

We kicked off our partnerships with what we consider one of the World’s Best Times, a 4 hour pizza-eating, bus-riding event with scottspizzatours. Pictured above are just a few of the bloggers and bands having their fill of carbs and booze. 

Keep an eye on #CMJ for exclusive photos, GIFs and maybe even a couple of videos from the following collaborations:

Dudes. Ladies. It’s here. The unicorns of Tumblr have pranced through every single post made in 2014, and sorted them into rainbows of lists for you to explore. Grab a bowl of Lucky Charms® and check this out. It’s Tumblr’s Year in Review, 2014 style. After you reminisce, listen and watch, you may find a pot of gold.*

Moment Factory, who worked with us on our tour production, put together this demo video of the various looks and visual effects of our show, with some footage from production rehearsals. There are two more chances to see this show for the foreseeable future - in North Carolina and New Orleans this fall:
