So, before running over to Get Cryphy upstairs, I hung out in the main room and watched a bunch of Maria Isa’s CD Release party.
I walked in late and saw the last half of Dance Band’s set. I was bummed that I missed my homegirl Mayda. (frowns). All and all, a damned good time though.
It was a good show but I had to dip out about halfway through her set to get my hosting duties upstairs going. Get Cryphy was the official after party.
No words, Should have sent a poet... wait.
Seriously, thanks to Salut for having us and Golden for booking us. It was a blast for sure even though the weather was trying to fight us. Every year, Grand Old Days is a good time and this time couldn’t be an exception. Muchas Gracias!
I am supposed to publish these on Wednesdays... dammit - missed again. Greetings to all of you beautiful people. Another week is upon us and the time to party is now! This past week was pretty chill for us but we have work to do this weekend.
First and foremost, we are playing GRAND OLD DAY street festival in St. Paul this Sunday (6/7) at NOON. Its very important that I stress that we are playing at NOON. We’ll be on the Salut stage which is at 917 Grand Ave St Paul, MN 55105. True story. Full info to be found here - http://www.grandave.com/grandoldday/. Take advantage of another dirt cheap outdoors Heiruspecs show. Party with several hundred thousand of your neighbors. This is billed as the biggest block party in the country and it’s no joke.
Friday 6/4, Felix hosts GET CRYPHY in 1st Avenue’s VIP room with Jimmy 2 Times. Last time Heiruspecs played the Triple Rock, Jimmy 2 Times held down the turntables all night and Friday shall be even more rediculoid. With original mixes of classic rap and dance tracks, this should be awesome. More info and a taste of the music can be found here - http://www.myspace.com/cryphygetting. Details for admission are here - http://www.first-avenue.com/. Oh yes.
In the main room at 1st Ave on 6/4, our friend Maria Isa is having her CD release party. Congrats! If you want to go check it out please do. Maria Isa, Muja Messiah, Mayda, Danceband, Kill the Vultures, I Self Divine, and St. Paul Slim will be joining her on stage as well. If you’ve seen us in the Twin Cities or nearby within the last year, you’ve seen every single one of those acts at least once. Go check it out! Maria Isa is featured on the Heiruspecs song "Lenses" and her band has been holding it down for Sota-Rico for a few years now. Go get em! Heiruspecs is now on Twitter so come and follow us if you’re up on it.. http://twitter.com/heiruspecs is the lick! Follow us. Why? Because it proves that we’re all up on this social networking thing... I gotta plug Twinkie’s McNally Smith Program as well - http://www.mcnallysmith.edu/newsevents/summerprograms.aspx. Please check this out immediately if you have any desire to take part in rap related workshops and classes. "Hip Hop Workshop. McNally Smith’s first ever Hip Hop Workshop will be under the direction of Sean McPherson, bassist and bandleader of Twin Cities Hip Hop heroes, Heiruspecs.

Coming up soon - Big Trouble is June 12 for the How Was The Show 7th Anniversary at the Turf Club Big Trouble is June 27 at Turf Club for the Sensational Joint Chiefs show Thanks for looking! See you at Grand Old Days!- Felix Oh, also... while randomly searching the interweb, I found this.
So, running up the steps and through an open door, I was in 1st Avenue’s VIP room for the monthly hip hop/ dance party they call GET CRYPHY. I begged like a little girl to host this installment because it sounded like fun. Boy was it... First a round of pics from WES WINSHIP - shot for City Pages.
Volume was pushed by Jimmy 2 Times, Fundo, So Gold, and yours truly. It was a blast to do old school crowd hyping and listen to 3 amazing DJ’s mash up big rap songs into dance music and vice versa. There were a lot of friends and a lot of good dancers in the building and as the Maria Isa show got finished, the place became fully packed. The booze runneth freely and the asses shake with a ferver. Here are my less awesome pics.
This was seriously one of the better times I have had partying in recent months. I wanna do it again this Friday night for real. I swear, I’ll ask to do it again and I’ll keep you posted on when/if it should go down. Check out GET CRYPHY on the first Friday of every month at 1st Ave’s VIP Room.</p
Take a look. It will blow your mind.
