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.

9/12/2009 Heiruspecs will be performing at Pizza Luce in Duluth.  www.pizzaluce.com
9/13/2009 Heiruspecs will be at the Concrete and Grass Festival (at Mears Park in downtown St. Paul)  http://www.concreteandgrass.com/
9/18/2009 Heiruspecs will be at Sauce Spirits & Soundbar (3000 Lyndale Ave. S. in Minneapolis) http://www.spiritsandsound.com/

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!

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

Hey all, it’s Felix –
Well, I feel like I just did the last newsletter a couple of days ago but I guess it’s been more than a week.  Thanks to everyone who came out to support us at our shows over this past weekend.  I have a soundset picture update coming late tomorrow.  Heiruspecs doesn’t have any shows this weekend but that doesn’t mean we aren’t doing anything. 

First off, I am proud to say that I am giving the commencement speech at Central High School here in St. Paul.  Yes, that’s where Heiruspecs got it’s start so it’s a real honor to be asked to come back and say something good to the graduating class of 2009.  This happens on Tuesday and I must admit I am a bit nervous.  I have high expectations for myself mostly and I hope people don’t get bored with me like the expect to be with any speaker.   To the rest of you Heiruspecs fans out there graduating this year, CONGRATULATIONS!  Big things ahead for all of you, I know it. 

331-contactTwinkie gave me the scoop on a show happening tonight  (5/29/2009) at the 331 Club.  BIG TROUBLE – 9PM to 1AM at the 331 Club in NE Mpls.  The show is free and you can find them at http://www.331.mn/home.php.  The place will fill with people for sure.  Get there NOW. 

Since we’re talking about Twinkie Jiggles, here’s something that hasn’t gotten a lot of light on this page yet.  He is helping direct a hip hop program with workshops at McNally Smith College of Music – It features Toki Wright, Brandon All Day, New MC, Super Engineer Joe Mabbott and more.  More details can be found here —> http://www.mcnallysmith.edu/newsevents/summerprograms.aspx

I spy Muad’dib on the front page… 

mic_logo_sidebarYou’ve known it for years but now there’s a little something to prove that DVRG is a Minnesotan making an impression.  It’s kind of nice to know that you work with a real live hero.  Right?  I mean you never knew Clark Kent was superman did you?  DeVon is actually a classically trained composer and all around music lover.  You know how some clubs play classical music to get you to leave at 3am?  Well, guess who’s just getting started.  But I digress…

You can read about it onthe MetBlogs page – http://minneapolis.metblogs.com/2009/04/06/minnesotans-making-an-impression-dvrg/ and I bet you’ll be impressed.

As usual, more to come later!

Here’s a video of us at Soundset to tide you over.

Listen up!
