Hey all, it’s Felix - Well, I feel like I just did the last newsletter a couple of days ago but I guess it’s been more than a week. Thanks to everyone who came out to support us at our shows over this past weekend. I have a soundset picture update coming late tomorrow. Heiruspecs doesn’t have any shows this weekend but that doesn’t mean we aren’t doing anything.
First off, I am proud to say that I am giving the commencement speech at Central High School here in St. Paul. Yes, that’s where Heiruspecs got it’s start so it’s a real honor to be asked to come back and say something good to the graduating class of 2009. This happens on Tuesday and I must admit I am a bit nervous. I have high expectations for myself mostly and I hope people don’t get bored with me like the expect to be with any speaker. To the rest of you Heiruspecs fans out there graduating this year, CONGRATULATIONS!
Big things ahead for all of you, I know it. Twinkie gave me the scoop on a show happening tonight (5/29/2009) at the 331 Club. BIG TROUBLE - 9PM to 1AM at the 331 Club in NE Mpls. The show is free. The place will fill with people for sure. Get there NOW. Since we’re talking about Twinkie Jiggles, here’s something that hasn’t gotten a lot of light on this page yet. He is helping direct a hip hop program with workshops at McNally Smith College of Music - It features Toki Wright, Brandon All Day, New MC, Super Engineer Joe Mabbott and more. More details are on the McNally Smith site.
I spy Muad’dib on the front page... You’ve known it for years but now there’s a little something to prove that DVRG is a Minnesotan making an impression. It’s kind of nice to know that you work with a real live hero. Right? I mean you never knew Clark Kent was superman did you? DeVon is actually a classically trained composer and all around music lover. You know how some clubs play classical music to get you to leave at 3am? Well, guess who’s just getting started. But I digress... You can read about it onthe MetBlogs page and I bet you’ll be impressed. As usual, more to come later! Here’s a video of us at Soundset to tide you over.
