Heiruspecs - Airs July 25th

Heiruspecs Live from Minnesota
We're going to hear two concerts from the hometown hip-hop heavies. Recorded years apart -- each amazing. First, we're going to the very back of the MinneCulture music vault to find them performing on August 21st, 2010 at the Red Stag Block Party. Produced by Brian Herb and Daniel Zamzow. For both shows Heiruspecs remains: Midway Felix, Muad'dib, dVRG, Twinkie Jiggles, Peter Leggett, and Josh Peterson. 

Heiruspecs Live from Minnesota
Hard to believe but for over 20 years Heiruspecs have been delivering their own unique style of hip-hop raw and live with no samples, no drum machines, no turntables. For this show we're going to revisit the St. Paul rap giants across the river and on stage at Icehouse. Recorded by Ryan Mach on October 4th, 2016. Produced and mixed by Tom Garneau.
