As We Go On We Remember.....Now You Sing!

Hello everyone and welcome to HAIR IN THE AIR, The Official Blog of 3D In Your Face.  I am very pumped and excited for this weeks blog.  We had a stellar week back out on the road.  A huge thank you to Shelby, IA for the amazing street dance.  Most of all a big thank you to the underdog York, NE.  I wasn't sure if York, NE had what it took but I was proven wrong.  York, NE brought the threw a bigger and badder Rock N Roll party than some of the cities twice it's size.  Welcome to all our new friends and people just finding this blog.  I hope you stick around.  I have some big things in the works.  Rumor has it The Banditos will be making an appearance in Lincoln, NE this Friday, August 30th at The Salt Dogs Stadium and Saturday, August 31st at Septemberfest.  This could be your one and only chance to catch these masked avengers in the flesh.  Check out The Banditos back story here.
As our summer tour draws to a close, I am more excited and than terrified of the future.  Looking back we did so much this summer.  I can't even begin to list all the amazing things we as a band have seen and done along our summer 2013 tour.  I can tell you this, 2013 was the 8th summer tour I have ventured on with 3D In Your Face.  I can safely say this was the best tour I have ever been on.  The shows were wilder, the fans were louder, and the laughs were overflowing at every corner.  I think we as a band have become even closer, if that is even possible.  We see each other ever week for days on end and the laughs seldom seem to cease.  I couldn't imagine a week without seeing those guys.  A true Rock N Roll family we have become.  Sure we fight but what family doesn't fight?
Some of my fondest memories from this tour have been our over night trips and early morning escapades.  The parade during the Wayne, NE Chicken show was beyond cool where each of us only had three hours of sleep.  On a particularly chilly 40 degree summer night we got the opportunity to play after Warrant in Norfolk, NE.  Each and everyone of you wild Rock N Roll animals kept us warm that night.  Making the cover of the Fremont Tribune was a dream come true and doing a live interview at KHUB was the icing on the cake.  This summer saw our first and second fore into television with a live interview on NTV and The Star City Buzz.

Playboy called this the "Porta-pottie/shredded beef Tour" because for a while that's all we saw in every city.  We not only toured together but we lived together for a week in the 3D Studios while we recorded our new record.  We played so many different stages and venues.  From country clubs to barns to converted semi trailers.  I managed to land a radio or newspaper interview for almost every city we played in which is a massive chunk of radio time along with being on The Big O 101.9 every Saturday with HAIR IN THE AIR.  We saw some friends leave and some new friends step up.  I am thankful for everyone that has helped us lift the drum riser or change guitars.  A thousand thank you's can never be enough for all the support throughout our summer tour.  I know I missed a ton of towns and shows but as I am writing this the I am overwhelmed by the love from all of you out there.  I will say it again.  We can't do any of this without you.  Thanks for sticking by our side.
Since May I have not had a chance to unpack my suitcase, I have realized that I am not the kind of person that lives out of a dresser full of drawers and closets full of hangers.  In May I listed my tour essentials; sun screen, socks, ear plugs, 8 hours of sleep, extra pants, and plenty of water.  Here is my updated list for you.  I managed to go through an entire bottle of NO-AD SPF 60.  As for socks I followed through with my plan and went through about 5 new packages of socks, 8 in each bag.  We as a band used up 4 entire bottles of baby powder.  Due to a nearly catastrophic heat rash I learned the saving powers of Gold Bond can cure about anything.  Count me in for two bottles of that miracle drug.  We used around 20 cans of hairspray between the five of us.  I have not yet blown out my new stage pants, the backups are still there and we have three more shows to go.  The "Rock N Roll 8" rarely shines down upon me these days.  There is just so much I want to get done in a day that sleep seems tougher to come by.  As for "staying hydrated on tour" he have had our share of heat warnings but we have been very lucky.  Water has been a plenty and Playboy has even started to drinking Pedi-lite.  Our bus has also been upgraded with a coffee machine and I recently found the magical powers of Starbucks to be a life saver.  Also I didn't get a sun burn this year COUNT IT.    "Midnight Devils Summer Tour 2013" we made your our bitch (sorry mom).

As we prepare to set up our show for the last three times before it moves inside for the winter, I am happy to tell you that we are going all out for these last shows.  Friday, August 30th we will be making the trip back to Lincoln, NE to play the Totally Rad 80s Run at The Salt Dogs Stadium in The Haymarket.  The run begins at 7 PM and we start playing as soon as the run ends.  Tickets to see our performance are only $10.  Check out  Saturday, August 31st we are making a quick stop in Omaha for Septemberfest in The CenturyLink parking lot.  Big stage = big show.  8 flame tours, confetti, and even video cameras to capture the magic of the evening.  Show starts at 10 PM after The Roller Derby.  Sunday, Sept 1st we will be celebrating Labor Day in Sutherland, IA.  You wont want to miss our last show of the tour.  Pranks and pranks and pranks and pranks.  Show starts at 9 PM just look for the fire.  That is all for now.  I can't wait to see each and everyone of you.  If I could have one request for our last three shows it would be MORE HOMEMADE SIGNS.





  1. Maybe a survival kit should include something fun as well? It doesn't all have to be about surviving the odds, throw in a couple funny items! Whoopee cushions, sunglasses with flip lenses, energy drinks, a leather repair kit, spare guitar straps, extra finger nail polish, promo cards, a rock (to rock harder), and don't forget some fake tats to spice up your look a bit. Hope that helps :)

  2. My kit now includes condoms that ae ribbed on the inside.......

  3. I'm not sure what reverse ribbed condoms really do but I guess I like where your head is at.

    Thanks for the comment Kelsey. What a wild show in Lincoln. I was very glad to be apart of that wonderfully warm evening.
