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









Heiruspecs is going to be featuring a lot of the great music that has come out of CentralHigh School on the radio in advance of their scholarship appearance. We are especially interested in hearing from Central students or Central graduates who are in the know. If you have audio and/or recommendations, please send them along to eric@heiruspecs.com

More details on when and where to tune in are soon to come!

On Thursday January 28 from 6-8 Twinkie Jiggles and Trivia Mafia will invade the Fifth Element in Uptown to run hip-hop trivia.

Pabst Blue Ribbon and Caffrey’s Sandwich will also be providing some fantastic prizes and consideration. Get ready for a hip-hop specific image round, sound round, hip-hop charades and tons of great hip-hop history questions. Twinkie’s certainly got the goods to run this bad boy down, he teaches a hip-hop history course at McNally Smith College of Music in St. Paul and if you press pause at the 55th minute and 23rd second of Krush Groove you can see Twinkie eating a calzone in the back of the All You Can Eat Sbarro Montage with the Disco Three. We’ll see you there at 6PM!

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
