Heiruspecs, the St. Paul live band hip-hop institution is celebrating their 20th anniversary in high fashion on December 29 at the Turf Club. The band, formed in September of 1997 by Chris ‘Felix’ Wilbourn and Sean ‘Twinkie Jiggles’ McPherson* at St. Paul Central High School. For 20 years the group has been an instrumental part of the underground hip-hop world and the Twin Cities music scene. Heiruspecs has also made giving back to their community one of the central parts of their mission, and have so far given over $20,000 out to St. Paul Central students in the form of the St. Paul Central Heiruspecs Scholarship. This year, Heiruspecs is also excited that one of their past scholarship recipients from 2016, Gabby Zonneveld (aka Gabby Z) will be opening up the show. Heiruspecs is also excited to welcome one of the Twin Cities most talented DJs (and on-air radio personality at KFAI), Miss Brit, onto the bill. She’ll be providing music before and after Heiruspecs’ performance.
In addition to all the standard fanfare of a Heiruspecs Holiday Classic (a profound aversion to playing anything holiday themed combined with access to top Twin Cities collaborators since no one is on the road on December 29) Heiruspecs will be releasing a limited edition 20 year anniversary CD of live performances, rarities and outtakes.
Please also note: Heiruspecs has embraced their 20 yearish-ness and appropriately scheduled this show for folks who haven’t been awake at 1am since Barack Obama was in his first term. The Heiruspecs set will start promptly at 9pm.
*The nickname Twinkie Jiggles seemed a lot less stupid at age 16 for the record.
