So if you saw this, Then you knew that we were doing the Last of the Record Buyers thing presented by Brandon All Day of Big Quarters. We got a chance to hear a ton of dope beats by some of the Twin Cities up and coming hip hop producers and then show how we go about making beats for Heiruspecs material.
We brought out a bunch of shitty recordings of rough drafts and rehearsal tapes. We then played a bit and eventually tried to make something from scratch. Here’s a couple of pics I snapped while on stage.
It was a friday night, the sun had gone down and there we were in Uptown. As this is another local show, we had a lot of friends there. We haven’t been playing any indoor shows in town this summer so this was a fun change of pace for us.
Lucy Michelle was there and doing her thin opening for us. Later on in the night, Lucy came up and joined us on the chorus's for Let it Fly and It Takes. She was great! Here's a video clip of her doing her thing;
YES! It was a good time. See all you guys next time!
I feel like I want to be Around you... When the sun goes down, yeah!
Perfect words for the night.
We showed up to catch the end of Martin Devaney’s set. Former Heiruspecs member and all around good guy, we had a drink with him accross the street from the show before setting up. Guess what? He aggreed to do Wardrums with us tonight...
Here’s a before and after deal; This is 2 minutes before our set...
and this is 2 minutes into our set...
It was a super fun night. I didn’t get a ton of photo’s this time around as I was too busy swatting mosquito’s from the stage. Sorry if I looked like I was flipping out up there. I was getting eaten alive.
The sun was starting to set and things always turn magical as the sun goes down. I wish I had more pics, I wish I had more pics, I wish I had more pics... There were a TON of photographers there so hopefully some will surface in the general press. Maybe our friend Asha will post hers. If she does, I’ll put a link up right away. Here’s a blurry one to show the sun went down eventually. Point and shoot fail;
And then there was Carnage!
Afterwards, we hung around and signed autographs and took a ton of photo’s. Thanks to everyone who came out! It was fun and especially so because it was a St. Paul affair. Here’s a pic that I took with my camera because someone’s camera phone may not have done the job. Enjoy, and thanks for waiting!
This Friday, September 18, we play Sauce Soundbar with Lucy Michelle. Details below.
YOU JUST WON A BRAND NEW CAR!!!! So on Saturday, I heard a rumor that someone’s brand new Hyundai Genesis exploded on a race track at a Heiruspecs sponsored event.
I have been working with ClubFR, a Chicago based drifting organization, to sponsor some racing this season in the Midwest in part of my involvement with TMF Opposition. Keith Schoeler was there and took a few photo’s to prove the rumors true. Holy shit. As this happened on a race track with waivers signed, I don’t think insurance will cover it. Only 800 miles on the odometer and it all goes up in flames.
I somehow doubt that that 100,000 mile warranty is going to cover any of this... Sorry man! For more info on the photographer - see http://www.kaizophoto.com/.
