Hello everybody and welcome to HAIR IN THE AIR, The Official blog of 3D In Your Face and The Midnight Devils. Gearing up for another wild weekend and of course it snows like crazy all night. No worries on our part. There is nothing that can stop us from playing tonight's 21st Saloon Tribute Show at Sneaky Pete's Saloon in Omaha, NE. It's been almost a month since we last played Omaha and the last place we played was of course The 21st Saloon. We were devastated to see it go like everyone else but it's time to move on and remember all the good times we had there. That's exactly what we are doing tonight at Sneaky Pete's. We can't wait to see some familiar faces and this will be the first time we ever played with The Playboy at this bar. I don't have to tell you how this is going to go down. Saturday we are heading back west across the state to a bar that welcomed us with open arms back in July. Get ready for a very special night of boogie woogie rock n roll at The Glass Bar in Grand Island, NE. This is one of the coolest bars in central Nebraska and the basement/our dressing room is supposedly haunted. I will try and get video proof for you. I will be doing lots more radio this week with another show tonight/Saturday morning from 12 AM to 3 AM and my radio show also called Hair in the Air on Saturday night at 11 PM all on 101.9 The Keg.
Things are going very well for The Midnight Devils and that makes my job a little easier. We have been traveling a ton hitting up towns north, south, east, and west of Omaha. That's the one thing that makes me happy, we are finally getting out and spreading our wings. Preaching the good word to the great people of Nebraska, Iowa, Missouri, Kansas, and soon South Dakota. Our summer dates are starting to fill up and we only have about 8 more available dates until August. Right now we are looking for a show in central Iowa, April 8th. We also have April 14th and 15th available but not for long. I feel so lucky that we get to hit the open highway every weekend and see people that we normally didn't get to see but once a year. It's still exciting and it's still fun. You never really know what you are getting into but you know there's going to be some great stories along the way. Just wait until I start writing my book. Our show schedule has been updated as of Wednesday and is available here. Keep spreading the word because we can't do all of this without your help.
I wanted to address something but I wasn't really sure how to make this negative thing into a positive, so kind of read between the lines. We as a band are relatively quiet on our social media pages and that is definitely intentional. Unless it relates directly to the band or public appearances we don't post it. There are so many terrible things being said on Facebook and Twitter and if someone reads a post made by one of the guys in the band and doesn't agree with you the entire band comes off looking like a bunch of assholes. It's pretty simple and we have had tons of conversations about this "don't alienate your audience by what you say on social media." More importantly who has the time to focus on negativity when there are shows to be booked, emails to be sent, and songs to written. It really comes down to priorities and putting your money where your mouth is. In order to move forward and achieve the our goals we must first remove that "attack mentality". Sure there are plenty of things I see on the Internet that I don't like or don't agree with but on the other side of the coin there are people that disagree with me and my outlook. If I went after ever person I disagreed with than I would be no better off than I was before I started. Go ahead and make your point on religion, politics, music but honestly how many times have you had that conversation with a person and changed their minds. Never. The focus needs to shift to taking care of business and progressing in a positive light. Let your actions speak louder than your words.
