Once again, this is not a post about weight loss but a post about randomness and that randomness is about my favorite band, Nico Vega.
You know that time you made up a really good product in your head and then 2 months later you see it on a info-commercial and the guy/girl who created YOUR idea just made millions over night?
Well that happened to me one time (welcome to the club, Deanna)…….now I’m talking in 3rd person ….but I won’t talk about it here.
INSTEAD, I am going to blog for a second about one of my FAVORITE BANDS who I am 10000000% CONVINCED will blow up SOON SOON SOON.
I have been listening to Nico Vega for about 3 years now, seen them 13 times in concert and met them a few times. I absolutely adore them.
Aja Volkman (lead singer and wife to Dan Reynolds of Imagine Dragons) is my idol. I don’t even have idols or people “I look up to,” especially celebrities or people I don’t know. Just be a good person and I will look up to you or like you. The end.
BUT if there is a person out in the Universe (and there is) that I don’t personally know but I still look up to that would be Aja. She is a woman who sings AWESOME songs that have depth and meaning, is beautiful inside and out and exudes what it is to be a strong, beautiful, amazing, intelligent woman.
I want to put this in writing somewhere, hence why I am blogging about it so I can look back at my blog in a year from now and say:
SEEEEEE, SELF!!!?!?!?! I WAS RIGHT!!!! THEY BLEW UP! GOOD!!!!! FINALLYYYYYYYYYYYYYY! PEOPLE WHO DESERVE TO GET MAJOR RECOGNITION FOR THEIR AMAZING MUSIC THEY MAKE. HOLY SHIT, I WAS RIGHT!!! YESSSSSSSSSSSSSJ LASDFJDLAS FJDLSAFJASLF DSAF
!!!!!!!!!!!!!! SO AMAZINGGGGG. I AM SO HAPPY!!! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
I am really excited for them because their song “Beast” is on a trailer for the new video game BioShock Infinite. WANNA SEE!!!! WATCH THE VIDEO. YAY!
I can’t explain how much I love that song. I have probably sent a video of them performing Beast to at least 20 different people in the few years. Now I will post it on here for the 200 or so people that read my blog. I love you all by the way. It’s an old video but it will do. Here you go.
Here’s another version.
Are you kidding me right now? Did you just watch that? How can someone listen to her voice and look at the energy that her tiny body spits out and not LOVE IT.
Also, I can’t believe it took me this long but I finally uploaded a performance I taped of their song “LUCKY ONE” from a concert I went to last year. I am praying that this song is on their upcoming album because I think it is absolutely beautiful and the lyrics truly move me. The sound quality is a little weird because I was literally standing next to the huge speaker but at least I was inches from them during the performance!
Here it is:
One time I also won a contest during Halloween to watch Nico Vega perform an acoustic set for just 20 fans at a local radio station in Los Angeles! It was incredible and I got to bring my friend Shannon who is also a huge Nico Vega fan. They were nice enough to sign one of my favorite pictures of Aja and I framed it and have it in my room now
Lastly, here are a few pictures I have taken from shows and meeting Nico Vega and Dan Reynolds from Imagine Dragons 🙂
I re-read this post after I wrote all this and I realize I sound completely obsessed/insane over musicians.
I assure you I am completely sane but I won’t deny my passionate enthusiasm for people and things that I believe in.
Do the right thing. Bring World Wide attention to this band. They 100% deserve it AND they are nice people. This is rare. Thank you.
