I just want to say that last night was one of the best shows MNBC has played in a while. We took a few minutes off there, and our “welcome back” was more than warm. Last night was one of those perfect shows - where you don’t have to worry about promoters breathing down your neck for ticket sales, your set time being cut short, or any of the other silly issues that make playing shows any less than they should be - fun.
No. Instead, we got to play with and for our friends, meet some great new bands that we hope to keep in touch with and hopefully play with again, and open up for a band that influenced us strongly when we were first working MNBC out.
I loved last night because it had that “tour” feel for me, even though I wasn’t the one on tour. When you’re on the road, there’s an unmatchable excitement level that I can’t quite explain… everything about last night - from the tight layout of the venue to the “cheering section” that we formed in the hallway… these are unforgettable experiences; little memories that you make while you’re away from home, and even though we were the locals last night, I was really happy to be part of it all again. It definitely made me really made me miss being part of that action. Just listening to Teddy Grahams lament about being chased out of a Walmart parking lot brought me back to the good old days of showering in the rain, BBQing in parking lots, and making friends with strangers in hopes that your music will somehow entertain and touch them.
We’ve got some exciting things coming up. Our EP is FINALLY getting released on April 27th. Guys, wait until you hear it. Of all of the projects I’ve done before, this is the one I am most proud of, and I’m sure the rest of the band can say the same. I hope you love it. I hope it makes you dance. And most of all, I hope it makes you stick around to see what we write next.
