One Last Hurrah For Kevin and Shooters In Kearney, NE.

HELLO Rock Fans and welcome to HAIR IN THE AIR, The Official Blog of 3D In Your Face.  First of all I want to apologize for being away from the blog-sphere for the last two weeks.  The summer tour has been going so well that I haven't had to much to talk about.  I didn't want to half ass a blog for you because I know you would see right through it.  HAHA!  You are the best fans in the world.  The shows have been going so great and I can't thank each and everyone of you enough for all the love and support.  Also to the 3D In Your Face Army, you guys are my heroes in and out of the trenches and make every show feel like home.  Your smiling faces are what bring us back week after week.  Lastly thank you to our amazing road crew for all of your hard work and decication.  We love you guys and lucky girl so much and I know we never say "thank you" enough.  For the updates, I will try and be brief, we are at the halfway mark of the summer tour.  The roughest two weeks lie ahead of us.  The album is coming along great, we are sitting at about 10 or 11 songs and we are starting to look at scheduling time for recording.  This week we launch off Friday with a very special private party.  Super secret doings going on but just know it's very cool.  Saturday, July 18th we are taking the red-eye to Kearney, NE to play at Shooters for Kearney Cruise Night.  This is a huge event with thousands of hot rods, customs, and muscle cars driving all over the city.  It's already July.   Where does the time go?  Also don't miss my radio show HAIR IN THE AIR, Saturday night at 10pm CST on 101.9 The Keg.

For this weeks blog I wanted to let all of our Kearney and Western Nebraska fans know that this Saturday, July 18th will be our final performance at the bar known as Shooters.  Kevin, the owner has decided to sell the bar after 11 years and it will be changing hands this August.  We can't thank Kevin and his amazing staff enough for showing us such hospitality, for putting up with our crazy baby powder/glitter antics, and giving our fans a place to see their band.  I can name on one hand how many bar owners I actually like and get along with and Kevin is one of the good guys in this business.  He gave us a chance many moons ago and we still have some of the wildest Rock N Roll parties ever at his establishment.  I've seen enough things to write a decent size book while being at his bar.  The stories alone we will be telling for the next ten years.  Always quick with a water or a red bull, his staff never once made us feel unwelcome.  Actually quite the opposite.  Every time we walked into Shooters it was like we were old friends that hadn't seen each other in 6 months.  That's the best kind of band/bar owner relationship.  I know for many of you that haven't been to Shooters this may be very hard to relate to but for the many many of you that have been there this will hit home.  I only wish that I had gotten the chance to hang out at the bar outside of us playing a show because I believe it'd be just as amazing.

I tried to look back at the records and see when our first show at Shooters was but alas all I have is a show dating back to Nov. 2012.  My memory isn't all that it's cracked up to be but I bet there were even some shows before then.  Maybe one of you can help me out with this?  Almost 3 years of playing in the same club is nothing to scoff at.  We have always considered Kearney our "home away from home" and our Kearney fans have become apart of the family.  We've celebrated holidays in Kearney, ate thanksgiving dinners in Kearney, slept in parking lots, alleys, and next to railroad tracks in Kearney.  I can't ever remember having a bad show in this great city (except for that one time we Hot Rod started the hotel on fire.  Even then what a wild show.).  We will miss you Shooters.  Thanks for giving a bunch of long haired guys that wear to much makeup a chance.  OK OK, enough of the sappy news.  Rumor has it that the new owners will be keeping the tradition alive and will be doing live music in some fashion.  Don't throw away all hope of us ever playing in that building again.  Because of your support we were one of the top drawing bands there and baby we didn't come this far to back down without a fight.  For the mean time I want to extend an invitation to all of the 3D In Your Face Army in Kearney and the surrounding areas.  Let's show Kevin and his staff a night that they will never forget.  Let's show them why we are the loudest, hairiest, Rock N Roll band they ever brough into the Shooters doors.    Spread the word and let's fill the streets.

Always Loud
Forever Proud
