See below for more info on the show. We’re already here and getting ready to rumble…
I found the time to upload some pics before we got into soundcheck. This show already feels magical. Kids in the hallway are proving that the buzz is around. It’s nice to know that Heiruspecs is still remembered around the way… Cant wait to play. Hurry up and get here! – Felix
Dessa and Heiruspecs have been working together for over 3 years and this Friday marks a special night in their history of collaboration. Dessa’s new quartet featuring Josh and Twinkie of Heiruspecs will be playing alongside Dessa at the release show for new record, “A Badly Broken Code”. Her band will be reinterpreting Dessa tunes from her entire career and the show is going to be wonderful. After being offered a tremendous amount of hummus, red wine and Kool G. Rap CDs Dessa shared these kind words about playing with Heiruspecs.
|“Some of the best moments in my musical career have been made possible by the instrumentalists of Heiruspecs. I’ve long considered myself lucky to have found such talented, sharp, funny and kind players who are willing to join me on stage. In rehearsals, it’s all I can do to stay focused on the task at hand–I’m so often distracted by the beauty of the music they play that I’ll forget to sing. Every performance with players of Heiruspecs constitutes a great privilege.” – Dessa

Thanks Heiruspecs.com players!
(And I’ve attached the flyer).
Between Luther and Fargo, Twinkie, Muad’dib and I stopped by the 331 club and had some fancy drinks. Bloody Mary’s for them, and a Mamosa for me.
Then back on the road. (Drink responsibly and know your limits)

We’ve been around this block before so we already knew it’d be fun. Jade brought us up again and low and behold, it was a rap show.
These guys didn’t even bother to stick around for the whole show so I don’t mind talking a little shit here. I can’t believe rappers are still singing along to their album tracks! Please stop lip syncing!
Still, I’m grateful and appreciative of the energy and it sounds like your mixtape is probably going to bang. Just get your show right.
and after Big Quarters…
^^^^I know, I know, I know….. blurry again^^^^
Oh, and by the way, we have all this stuff at EVERY SHOW. Sometimes more! Right now the 10 years strong hoodies are just 20 dollars if you pick one up at a show. (I’ll be working on the online ordering part of this stuff soon)
Meeting new people is half the fun. Friends of friends become just friends.
I didn’t forget your picture!
Oh snap! Is that a new TMF Opposition shirt?
A big special thanks has to go to Rob, who was the soundman for the nights show. He made Peter’s kick drum sound magical. Rick Ruben would have applauded. Rob is part of a band which can be found here –> http://www.myspace.com/battlefieldsdoom
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.
Aaaaannnnnnnnnddddddddd, on to the pictures;
Yes, yes, yes, this pic is a blurry one. But it does show that Lucy Michelle was there and doing her thin opening for us. Later on in the night, she 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;
and this is DVRG’s newest toy^^^^^^^ (so many strange buttons and knobs)
I want to go on record and say that I feel bad that ALL of the pics I take of Peter are from this same angle. I have to use a flash and don’t want to blind him like I blind the rest of us. He has so much going on….
YES! It was a good time. See all you guys next time!
