Fancy.

You might be thinking; “Why has this website been so quiet lately?” or “Man these guys suck at the internet.”  But you’d be wrong in thinking things are somehow amiss.  In fact, the band has been back in the lab again working on a new album tentatively titled WE ARE THE FUTURE.

We have also been booking a few shows.  2 nights ago we were in Wisconsin.  What’s next you ask?  I can’t wait to tell you!

HOMELEFT211-14 Heiruspecs is in Chicago at The Abbey Pub.  More details can be found right here… http://www.abbeypub.com/html/11_14_09.html.  We’ve now been to the Abby Pub a gazillion times and every time it’s a blast.  Always, we see friends and family and every time those groups get a little bigger.  Come down and join the fun.

11-21 Heiruspecs in in Souix Falls, South Dakota at Nutty’s North.   More info for that is as follows…  http://www.thecollectiveeffortsunion.com/

More shows to come for sure including one or 2 in the Twin Cities.  More info on those later this week.   In the mean time, here are a couple of video’s from our CD release party that are good friend Alex was kind enough to edit together for us;

 

Lastly, here are a couple random shots to confuse you about what will happen on a new Heiruspecs record…

Dammit, I’m late again… shame on me.

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.

Greetings to all of you beautiful people.  Another week is upon us and the time to party is now!  This past week was pretty chill for us but we have work to do this weekend.

salutforwebFirst and foremost, we are playing GRAND OLD DAY street festival in St. Paul this Sunday (6/7) at NOON. Its very important that I stress that we are playing at NOON.  We’ll be on the Salut stage which is at 917 Grand Ave St Paul, MN 55105.  True story.  Full info to be found here – http://www.grandave.com/grandoldday/.  Take advantage of another dirt cheap outdoors Heiruspecs show.  Party with several hundred thousand of your neighbors.  This is billed as the biggest block party in the country and it’s no joke.

“Hip Hop Workshop. McNally Smith’s first ever Hip Hop Workshop will be under the direction of Sean McPherson, bassist and bandleader of Twin Cities Hip Hop heroes, Heiruspecs. Sean (a/k/a Twinkie Jiggles) will bring in many prominent emcees, producers, graphic artists and others to cover the essentials – and more – of Hip Hop. Instructor demonstrations and Q&A sessions will mix in with recording sessions and side trips to Twin Cities Hip Hop landmarks for a full week of instruction, insight and career guidance. The week ends with a final performance and a CD documenting each participant’s creations. The program is designed for ages 13 and up. Questions? Contact Sean McPherson or visit the Facebook Page.
