Kid Cudi is gonna be rocking at the Knitting Factory in NYC next Tuesday (6/17), and we have a pair of guest list slots to give away to you fine folks. Email firstname.lastname@example.org with your name and a winner will be selected Monday night. Even if you don’t get the freebies, come through to the Knitting Factory anyway (advance tickets here), you don’t want to miss this one.
What else is goin on with the Kid? He’ll be rocking in Boston tonight (6/13) at Chau Chow City, and in Toronto on Saturday (6/14) at the Drake Underground. You can also hear him on 88 Keys’ new mixtape Adam’s Case Files, downloadable here.

I just read the history of Threadless on a plane this Sunday, and lo and behold, not two days later I wake up to find a spiffy new design by Fool’s Gold art director Dust La Rock featured on the site as one of this week’s shirts! Serendipitous to say the least. Grab your own “Headhunter” tee right here, and get more Duster-designed (Dustsigned?) garments over at the Fool’s Gold Webstore.
Woah internet! The recent vintage clips from Coachella keep on stumbling into our lives. Go check out these Q&As with Treasure Fingers, Flosstradamus and XXXChange (not to mention Bonde Do Role, Holy Ghost and Cut Copy) at the Boosted blog, filmed during our pool party a few weeks back. It was the best of times, it was the blurst sunburntest of times…
In the latest edition of the Grand Theft Auto video game franchise (flying off shelves and decaying the morals of a nation right now!) you can listen to the Bag Raiders remix of KIM’s “By The Time They Reach You” on the François K-helmed “Electro Choc” station. Let their OZ jams soundtrack your nefarious deeds! Here’s a video clip of said track in action. Quoth the Bag Raiders, “Whoever did this, you rock a bunch like gravel…”
What’s been up with space-age slapatician and Fool’s Gold’s resident East Bay representer Trackademicks? Earlier this month, he dropped the second volume of his Remixtape series, which you can download here while reading track-by-track (hiyo!) commentary from the producer himself over on the Trackademia blog. Want more? Dude’s handiwork is all over the new Lyrics Born album, which dropped this past Tuesday. And guess what! Last week also saw Track (and the Honor Roll crew) rocking with us at the SF stop of the Fool’s Gold x Dim Mak tour, video of which is watchable over here. Yee! Check for Track’s “Enjoy What You Do” single (backed with some big remixes as well as b-side banger “Topsidin”) out on your favorite gold-plated independent record label later this summer.
At the Fool’s Gold WMC show, Nacho Lovers dropped a Cutty Ranks vocal edit of Style of Eye’s “The Big Kazoo” that had all the earlybirds in the place doing that Tim Allen “huuurrrh?!” surprise noise and wondering just what the hell was going on. Well, now the likely lads have it up on the internet for the world to enjoy. Send fi di hacksaw! Take out di tongue!
Check our brothers in bass Alex and Eli filling in for Mark Ronson’s Authentic Sh!t program this past Friday and dropping hella exclusives (including a preview of the Nacho Lovers 12″ out on Fool’s Gold later this spring). Grab the mp3 and the tracklist right here.
