More info to come soon....
Today Sean "Twinkie Jiggles" hit me with some info on a show coming up that deserves its very own shine. Sorry to give this to you on such short notice. and it read,
“This Wednesday September 9, Ela is getting back together. Ela features Peter and Sean from Heiruspecs and is a very different style from Heiruspecs. The photo is from backstage at Irving Plaza on their 2007 tour. This 21+ show takes place at the Turf Club. Roma Di Luna (w/ Crescent Moon of Oddjobs & Kill the Vultures) and Building Better Bombs (with P.O.S. from Doomtree) both play as well. Cover is $4.”
I will be there for sure. Where will you be? For more info; www.turfclub.net 1601 University Ave W St Paul, MN 55104-3820 (651) 647-0486 Get directions
Good god I’m slacking on this... Hey All, Sorry for the long delay. We’ve all been very busy and I’ve been working on some music of my own. We just played at the MN State Fair thanks to the Current who put us in Carousel Park for Minnesota Public Radio Day. Good looking out! Would you believe that after a largely slow month, we’ve got a bunch of shows coming up?
True story.... and there was much rejoicing. 9/12/2009 Heiruspecs will be performing at Pizza Luce in Duluth. www.pizzaluce.com 9/13/2009 Heiruspecs will be at the Concrete and Grass Festival (at Mears Park in downtown St. Paul) http://www.concreteandgrass.com/ 9/18/2009 Heiruspecs will be at Sauce Spirits & Soundbar (3000 Lyndale Ave. S. in Minneapolis) http://www.spiritsandsound.com/ 9/26/2009 Heiruspecs will be live at The Aquarium in Fargo (226 Broadway - Fargo ND) www.myspace.com/theaquariumfargois a good place to get more info.
9/12/2009 Heiruspecs will be performing at Pizza Luce in Duluth. http://www.pizzaluce.com/ has you covered if you need more info. Our good friends Big Quarters will be joining us for this show and it’s gonna be fresh. Last time we were in Duluth, we played the UofM campus and it was pandamonium. Now imagine trying to cram all of these lovely folks into a smaller room; Exactly.
9/13/2009 Heiruspecs will be at the Concrete and Grass Festival (at Mears Park in downtown St. Paul) http://www.concreteandgrass.com/. It’s really worth noting that we are playing right after the St. Paul Chamber Orchestra. There are a lot of kids we know in that bunch. See you this weekend! 9/18/2009 Heiruspecs will be at Sauce Spirits & Soundbar (3000 Lyndale Ave. S. in Minneapolis) http://www.spiritsandsound.com/ 9/26/2009 Heiruspecs will be live at The Aquarium in Fargo (226 Broadway - Fargo ND) http://www.myspace.com/theaquariumfargo is a good place to get more info. Oh, but there’s more! BIG TROUBLE will be playing too; Friday Sept. 11th at Eclipse Records In St. Paul for the No Bird Sings (all ages) CD Release Party. Friday Oct. 9th @ the Dakota for the Dakota Late Night series.
In other news, Big ups to New MC for using the Heiruspecs instrumentals in his solo set. I caught him at the Nomad the other night and it was awesome. Just to plug a long time friend of Heiruspecs, he can be found on http://www.myspace.com/newmcsoloreleaseshow and is constantly holding up rap shows in South Minneapolis. Word on the street is that a lot of people were, and still are buzzing about our song GET UP being used prominently in P. Diddy’s Making His Band. We still get feedback on it even though it’s in it’s millionth round of re-runs. No, I’m not posting a pic of Diddy. That would be too easy. More to come soon. Including details on a huge sale of some Heiruspecs Hoodies just in time for the cold to start creeping in. We live in the upper midwest, we know how to look good in the fall. Awesome Enough, Felix
Dammit, I’m late again... shame on me.
Well, it’s been slow enough over the last 2 weeks that I haven’t done a newsletter. Don’t be mad. Our fall is slowly starting to book itself without any help. How nice. I am fresh off of a suprise hosting gig at Hot Import Nights Chicago at Soldier Field. I hosted the drifting event for HIN/Formula D/ClubFR/and TMF Opposition. For those of you unfamiliar to drifting, it’s all about sliding your car. I manage a team of these drivers on the side. It was an honor to host this event in front of thousands of people and set against the downtown Chicago skyline. Coming up? August 22nd, Heiruspecs will play at the RED STAG in NE, Mpls in our first local show in some time.
It’s going to be different. That’s all I’ll say on that for now. More to come later... Crescent Moon returns in Big Trouble this Saturday at the Triple Rock. (Click on the picture to blow it up). It should be a blast with No Bird Sing and The Teddy Holidays. Big Trouble has a record out with Crescent Moon which you should go find and buy immediately. This isn’t radio - that’s a call to action. DO IT! The Star Tribune wrote up a great article on McNally Smith’s Hip Hop program (Which Sean Twinkie Jiggles McPherson is a huge part of) and it looks great. I bumped into DJ Judo on the street the other day and he said his part was a blast and getting kids to put their hands on turntables was great. Check out the article
Just a reminder, Heiruspecs back catalog should be available to you on iTunes so if you’re missing something, that’s gonna be the easiest place to find it. Get it now, before iTunes switches to subscription based service and artists have a harder time getting music onboard! On the radar; Medium Zach of Big Quarters has gotten himself engaged and is celebrating Sat. Aug 15th at Suburban World Theater with Anton, Espada, Noam the Drummer, and Miguel Vargas. Congrats homey! Heiruspecs is confirmed for The Last of the Record Buyers on Sept. 17th. We were previously slotted for August 20th but the big switcharoo has been pulled. More to come on that.
