So, this is pretty awesome. I get home from work yesterday, I settle in and sit on the couch, start scrolling through Instagram for a minute while I figure out what to eat for dinner... and then I come across this post.

Your eyes do not deceive you. That is Chad Smith, the drummer for the Red Hot Chili Peppers, hanging out at Ear Candy Music on Higgins! I know he was performing at the Peak to Sky Music Festival a few weeks ago, so maybe he's just been hanging out in Montana ever since.

And then of course came the realization that my house is like a block away from Ear Candy Music, and if I had gotten out of work just 20 minutes earlier, I might have been able to run over there and meet him. Unfortunately, that didn't happen, but it's awesome that a Chili Pepper was chilling (chili-ing?) in our area.

Anybody else out there spot Chad Smith walking around in the wild? Did you mistake  him for Will Ferrell?
