“Resident Fool’s Gold dance maniacs Jokers Of The Scene know what a good music video looks like. And, ahem, so do we! Now that the Jokers have a new record in need of a video, we reach out to you, the upstart, unsung directors and visual artists of bloglandia, and throw down the gauntlet. SHOW US WHAT YOU GOT!
New JOTS single ‘Revolting Joks’ is a twisty piano clubber that’s just begging for a visual to compliment its jacked-up moodiness. To that end, we’re launching a contest to see who can come up with the most imaginative music video for the tune. Download the video edit here, make some magic happen, and send us the results by August 16th. The videos will be reviewed by the collective FADER and Fool’s Gold braintrusts, and the best ones will be re-posted for the world to see, earning its creators internet immortality (and some fine, fine prize packs from the label and the magazine). It’s time to revolt…”
Check out this project from our Vancouver pal DJ Neoteric: a new mix for Discobelle with no artist or track titles, creating a game for obsessive internet DJ fans and regular ol music lovers alike.

This Wednesday at an undisclosed location in NYC, the Fool’s Gold fam is participating in a fairly insane 3-on-3 basketball tournament with the fine folks listed above.
And YOU can cheer us on – we’re giving some lucky (local) fans free passes to the games. All you have to do is email firstname.lastname@example.org with “Band Of Ballers” in the subject line and we’ll pick 10 lucky folks to come down to the wildest sporting event this side of rollerball (the Jimmy Caan version, not the one with American Pie dude).
The NYC date of the 10,000LB Hamburger Tour is an extra-special one. It’s basically the Fool’s Gold “hometown” show, buoyed by all the extra energy of A-Trak, Treasure Fingers, and Theophilus London rocking out for their best friends and neighbors (plus the added bonus of our UK pals Jack Beats flying over to play, using the show to kick off a North American tour of their own), general TGIF craziness, 19+ at the door… IT’S KIND OF LIKE A BIG DEAL.
So with all that in mind, we’re psyched to give you a number of chances to get into the show for free ninety nine. You can win tix from RCRD LBL and Green Shoelace, and RSVP for $1 entry (and $1 drinks) before midnight here. And hey, if you just wanna buy regular tickets, that’s cool too.
