Hip-hop heroes Heiruspecs will be co-headlining with Carnage and the Last Band Standin’ on Dec. 19 at the Turf Club, as a part of their Holiday Classic Series. An unknown special guest will open the show, and will be announced on Nov. 11. Advance tickets are available on the Turf Club website. Update 11/20: K. Raydio and O-D have been added to the bill.

In April of 2014, Heiruspecs released their fifth full-length album Night Falls; the album was given a warm welcome by critics and fans alike. Members Felix and Twinkie Jiggles have also released solo records of their own. The group is currently back in the studio working on new material they plan to release in the coming year.

Heiruspecs will be joined by one of their close music partners, Carnage. The hip-hop artist is widely known for his lyrical capabilities and powerful beat boxing. Carnage will be accompanied by his band the Last Band Standin’. His latest full length albums are Respect the Name and One Year Later.
