the hockey team is winning again–there’s fighting in the stands

Hear the Heaps houseparty here!

Here’s the entirety of our most recent show at Tia’s Houseparty, streaming to your computer:
Vodpod videos no longer available.(If you don’t see a player above this, you can go here for the streaming playlist)

Highlights: Perhaps the best version of “One More Song For Mary” we’ve ever recorded (certainly different than my solo version). New arrangements of “Aberdeen”, “Baby’s Daddy”, “Old Palo Verde” and “The Equality of All Liquors” that aren’t on any of our albums. (“Old Palo Verde” gets a little garbled by random interface static but it’s not that bad.) And every performance of “Divorcee” offers its own gifts. All in all a success–thanks to Tia for having us and everyone who made it out!
