So be sure to catch Trizzy in a town near you on The Great North American Club Crawl Tour, scratching its way from Canada to Cali and all in between. Full info and advance tickets here.
The Echoplex was the place to be last month, with the Fool’s Gold crew taking over the Check Yo Ponytail party for a night of raps, revelry and BRUISER MOTHERFUCKIN BRIGADE! Danny Brown headlined a night that also featured Kid Sister (backed by Sinden and J2K of Flosstradamus), Main Attrakionz, Party Supplies and Thee Mike B. Check out Spin’s gallery of shots by Nathaniel Turner, a bunch of Shadowscene flicks, video of Schoolboy Q coming out for “Blunt After Blunt,” as well as a megacollection of photos and videos from our homie Glenjamn!

The enormous Bart B More remix of Cubic Zirconia’s “Take Me High” has quickly become a DJ favorite (peep Diplo opening Holy Ship! with it and dropping on his radio show), and the band loves it too. So much, in fact, that they decided to film a video for the remix, with frontwoman Tiombe Lockhart once again pulling double duty on both sides of the camera to direct.
Watch it up top, grab the remix on iTunes or Beatport, and check more CZ vids (and Tiombe’s directorial tips) here.
Cubic Zirconia will be playing their first hometown show of the new year (and their first since opening SBTRKT’s sold-out Music Hall Of Williamsburg gig) on Saturday, February 4th at Drom. They’ll be shooting another vid there as well, so look sharp! We’ll see you there. Read More
