One Bad Mother: Raw Power

Hello everybody and welcome to HAIR IN THE AIR, The Official Blog of The Midnight Devils and 3D In Your Face.  It's now time.  As I am writing this I'm going over some last minute practise songs for this weekend.  For me the night is just getting started but by the time you read this you will be getting ready to destroy another Friday evening.   Tonight is the homecoming/debut of The Midnight Devils full-on electric circus at our home bar in Omaha, NE, The 21st Saloon.  Sniper, Playboy, and I have been busting our asses getting this thing ready for you.  We are coming out firing high on some really potent rock n roll.  Bringing the attitude and the danger that I know you so desperately crave.  Tonight is also a Neon Party sponsored by Mr. Joey Neon and Neon Energy Drinks.  Get your glow on with The Midnight Devils.  Also my radio station 101.9 The Keg has been so gracious as to give us three pairs of tickets to see Alice Cooper at The Ralston Arena this Saturday night.  We will be hosting the first ever Rock N Roll Olympics to win these tickets to see The Godfather of Shock Rock in the flesh and bone.  Saturday we are heading out to Pacific Junction, IA for a free all ages show at Loess Hills Harley Davidson.  This show is apart of HOGtoberfest and will begin at noon.  Food, drinks, bikes, and damn dirty rock n roll in the mornin'.  Baby were we're headed there aint no rest stops.  Get in the van and let's boogie.

Nights before shows with 3D In Your Face are always very exciting for me.  The anticipation builds and it gets tough to sleep.  With The Midnight Devils it's a whole different ball game.  It's fear of the dark.  It's like walking that razor's edge.  The unknown is terrifying yet truly exhilarating.  It's that same old feeling that I got stepping on stage 11 years ago not really even sure if we could finish an entire set.  I love it.  This means something and I think all the work and stress we've put into this band shows in the heart and soul of the songs.  It's pure and honest no bullshit rock n roll.  We've decided to do things differently and get back to the reason we started playing guitar in the first place.  It's that electrical spark that can't be created anywhere else.  I know, I've tried.  When it's 4 AM and you can't yet put your guitar down because you have to play it a few more times.  I was talking with Corey Phillips, one of the most amazing photographers in Omaha, and he told me forget about what you guys did in the past.  This is a whole new ball game.  Do it harder, do it louder, and for fuck sake turn some heads doing it.  Corey not only takes the best pictures but he also gives the best advice.  I told him Corey I have to get off the phone you've got me all jacked up and I need to capture this in the blog.

The raw power (borrowing from Iggy and The Stooges).  What else is there?  I was thinking about writing about how stressed everyone was getting before the tour kick off but fuck that.  We aren't stressed.  We have the best job in the world.  Later tonight we are going to be in a crowded room with our best friends screaming at the top of our lungs.  There will be booze, sweat, and blood I know that much for sure.  I just keep telling myself "Now how bad do you want this?  Can you push yourself harder?"  Baby I've got so much more to give.  I haven't even started.  Tonight is going to be something special I can already feel that.  It's going to be something different.  Corey told me "You better be bringing the pain tonight.  People are going to be watching".  I told him "You don't even have to worry abou that.  This is what we do best."  Change is good and I think change is going to be revolution.  This is just the start of something good I hope you can hang on.

PS.  The new 3D In Your Face music video is finished.  Jeremy Partridge did an amazing job and we would like to thank the great city of Memphis, NE for letting us terrorize your town.  More details on a release date and upcoming show will be posted soon.  Don't worry we aren't leaving you high and dry.
