A couple weeks back, I found myself at the Turf Club in St. Paul for an event that wouldn't normally hold my interest. Big Trouble turned it all around for me. They absolutely KILLED a ton of Beatles music. My point and shoot will explain...
Downstairs you could play the new Beatles Rockband game and upstairs Big Trouble made the Beatles bump like I always thought they should. It was an amazing night and a lot of people were there that I know as rap kids. They ALL agreed that this was a dope event. Big Trouble can be seen playing shows all around the Twin Cities. Heiruspecs members also in Big Trouble are; Sean (Twinkie Jiggles) McPherson, Peter Leggett, Josh Peterson.
I'll have more info on this in our newsletter this week but we have a series of video's in HD being posted to Youtube that you guys will like... a sample for your consideration;
This is a video flyer.
Greetings, this is Twinkie from Heiruspecs. Big Trouble the instrumental group that features 3 current members of Heiruspecs and my brother (recovering member of Heiruspecs) are playing in Downtown St. Paul tomorrow (Tuesday night) at 8:30PM.
My friend Lindsay Kimball from the Current is running a trivia night before that at 6:00 and I'll be hanging out for that too. The gig starts at 8:30 and we’d love to have you down there! It's free, it's all ages and their food is great. Have a great night!
Thanks Heiruspecs.com players!

It all started with the dream of playing the giant medley that closes out Abbey Road and the Beatles’ career. For Big Trouble, an instrumental band of players with arms’ length resumes in other bands (Heiruspecs, Kid Dakota, Brutal Becomings, Supreme Privacy, Jessy Greene, Crossing Guards, Aaron & The Sea, Traditional Methods, and many more), they knew the perfect singer to carry that weight: David Campbell, DJ on 89.3 the Current and be-wigged member of E.L.nO. In the past, they’d teamed up to cover everyone from Sonny & Cher (with the help of Lucy Michelle) to The Outfield to Weezer, and the re-release of the entire Beatles’ catalog provided the perfect occasion to do something giant and over-the-top.
So Campbell recruited more singers to help him make it better: Chris Pavlich from indie rockers Two Harbors, Aaron Schmidt from holding a cold Budweiser in Ashtray Hearts, and Brian Just courtesy of his bad, singer-songwriting self. Big Trouble got by with a little help from one of its friends in the form of dVRG, keyboardist from Heiruspecs, and the supergroup was set. A long and winding setlist was handcrafted and the musical tribute to the Beatles was ready. But that wasn’t nearly enough.
When “The Beatles are in Big Trouble” goes down on Thursday, October 1 at the Turf Club, there’ll be more. GameCrazye setting up the new Beatles Rock Band game for competition in the Clown Lounge (with prizes). Matt Scharenbroich (The Plastic Constellations) is hard at work painting a giant 8’ x 8’ mock-up of theSgt. Pepper’s Lonely Heart Club Band cover (with cutouts for heads, naturally) for people to take their picture with. Paul Creager from Square Lake Music & Film Festival is helping out with video so we can show Beatles movies all night long. And DJs Jim McGuinn and Jill Riley from 89.3 the Current will be spinning Beatles and Beatles-related songs all night.
We hope you will enjoy the show.
