I love Grand Old Days. I love St. Paul. Thanks to everyone who came out.









SCROLL DOWN FOR INFO ON THE SHOW THIS EVENING…

Red was lurking around here somewhere.  Not sure where he went.  Here are some photo’s from our soundcheck…   Loving this post as you go deal.

– Felix

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.

Fargo ND 9-26 021These 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.

Then….

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!

Fargo ND 9-26 045Oh 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

THANKS ROB!!!

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;

Last of the Record Buyers - Sauce - DDYK8 014Yes, 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;

YES!  It was a good time.  See all you guys next time!

So if you saw this = https://heiruspecs.wordpress.com/2009/09/12/heiruspecs-last-of-the-record-buyers/

Then you knew that we were doing the Last of the Record Buyers thing presented by Brandon All Day of Big Quarters.

We got a chance to hear a ton of dope beats by some of the Twin Cities up and coming hip hop producers and then show how we go about making beats for Heiruspecs material.  We brought out a bunch of shitty recordings of rough drafts and rehearsal tapes.  We then played a bit and eventually tried to make something from scratch.  Here’s a couple of pics I snapped while on stage.

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 (spelling?) 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.

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!

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.

l_fb3ef953b24e84b7df9cb9189765004bIn 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.

heiruspecs_macphail_045

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.

_mg_5944I 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…

cresCrescent 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 right here – http://www.startribune.com/lifestyle/50484172.html?elr=KArksLckD8EQDUoaEyqyP4O:DW3ckUiD3aPc:_Yyc:aUycaEacyU

itunesJust 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.
