I know I'm always hyping the shows I post because, well I want people to check them out. With that said, this is a recording that I'm really excited to bring to people. I can't really think of a better way to close out the year as far as sharing recordings goes even though there are some great shows left. I started taping shows to document the music that I was into and like any "taper" I enjoy listening to live music. Not everyone digs live recordings, that's cool. I've always had nothing but respect for Heiruspecs but unfortunately I showed up late to the party late with some bands and as I was really getting into them back in 05 they decided it was time to slow things down. It's understandable, if you want the back story it's out there. Anyways, they've played shows here and there since the hiatus but this was the first real time I set out to tape them. I wish I would have taped the 10th anniversary sets at the Turf Club.

"Heiruspecs" is the 4th official LP from Heiruspecs and the first since 2004's "A Tiger Dancing." I'm extremely happy these guys are back full time and I'm grateful that Sean in particular was cool about this show being taped. In my top 3 shows of 2008? Yes. A huge thank you goes out to both Heiruspecs and First Avenue for making this recording possible. Big Quarters and Mayda opened. Please support your favorite local bands, whoever they are.
