Greetings Heiruspecs family,
Sean here. We are headed out to Sioux Falls on Saturday and it has been an inexcusably long time since we've been there. The city has always been great to us and the promoter we work with, Jayson, is just incredible. We are playing at a new spot we've never done before called Big's Sports Bar. We hope you'll get the chance to come out.
We are excited that Mally and his DJ Last Word are coming out with us on this trip. They've been doing great things, including securing a tour alongside Brother Ali. That is quite an honor indeed. So, be sure to get there early to catch an amazing set from one of the best rappers out of Minneapolis.
We will also be joined by local Sioux Falls talent AdApt, Professor Rock and Diverse City. We haven't met Professor Rock or Diverse City but AdApt puts on a hell of a show and we've been knowing him for years. We'd love to see you there this Saturday!
Twin Cities Heiruspecs Fans: catch Heiruspecs this Sunday at the Bastille Day Block Party. Heiruspecs has played this event a couple times in its history and it is always a great time. All of Uptown throws down over by Lake Calhoun for an awesome celebration of French gaining independence, or storming something, or just being French in general. To celebrate we put on a great ass rap show and throw it down with pride. Vouléz vous rap show? We though so.

With Special Guest Mally
The Twin Cities hip-hop legends, Heiruspecs, will return to Sioux Falls for their first show there in over three years. They will be joined by Twin Cities rapper Mally.
The best live hip-hop band is back at again in support of their new release, Night Falls. Heiruspecs started in 1997 in St. Paul, MN and they’ve been a nationally touring entity since 2002. After a couple years working on solo projects and as collaborators with Brother Ali, Dessa, Chastity Brown and more Heiruspecs is again adding dates across the nation.
Heiruspecs is honored to be returning to Sioux Falls as one of their first out of state appearances in 2014. The group’s first show in Sioux Falls was in 2003 at Washington Pavillion. Starting with that show the crew has built long alliances with many Sioux Falls mainstays including Soulcrate and Jayson Weihs, their trusted promoter who is presenting this show. Heiruspecs is looking forward to sharing tunes from its new catalog with their Sioux Falls fanbase. The crew has matured in life and in sound and the new record has been described by L’etoile magazine as wielding “considerable power into some super-heavy grooves” and City Pages credits lead vocalist Felix with a “palpable new confidence”.
Heiruspecs is honored to be joined on this show Mally, a celebrated MC from the Twin Cities hip-hop scene. Fresh off a celebrated appearance at the official Soundset pre-party and the celebrated release of his most recent album, The Colors of Black, Heiruspecs is beyond excited to share one of Minnesota’s great acts with Sioux Falls.</p
Greetings Heiruspecs fans, friends and family.
Sean 'Twinkie Jiggles' McPherson here. As you can see from the calendar 2014 is a busy summer for Heiruspecs in the Twin Cities. With our new record "Night Falls" being fresh we took a couple extra summer gigs to share our tunes new and old with you. We are excited to be the part of one of Travail Kitchen and Amusement's large-scale events.
This crew of rap-loving crazies has created one of the most buzzed about restaurant scenes in Minnesota and whenever Felix goes in there they treat him like fucking royalty. So when we got the call to do the gig, it was a go. You'll be seeing some crazy food at this event. We love when the food at these outdoor events gets a little more ambitious. We are certainly looking to having some crazy ass food on Sunday and we hope you'll enjoy us.
I also felt motivated to write this note as I sat down to work on our set list for the show. We will make our set at all these shows different from one to the next during the summer. Different songs, different arrangements, different t-shirts, same guitar pedals. We hope you get the chance to come on out and rock with us this summer.
Thanks everybody! Have a great weekend.
Sioux Citians! Heiruspecs is making a return to Sioux City. It's our first time since 2005 and we are really looking forward to it. Be sure to head on down May 31 to this great concert and bring a can of food for a ticket discount.
