This January the crew set sail aboard the maiden voyage of Holy Ship! and brought a dose of FG swag to the high seas rave. Check out our own recap of what went down – from the Fool’s Gold Rap Party to Danny Brown’s solo set to A-Trak’s DJ lessons and main-stage antics (including a DJ hero conga line!) – and peep the official Holy Ship! video of the whole thing after the jump.
Check CZ doing their thing at Webster Hall Studio (alongside Oneohtrix Point Never) when Red Bull Music Academy comes to town on Tuesday, 3/6. It’s free with RSVP so get moving!
CZ’s Nick Hook is a RBMA alumn from the Class Of ’11 Madrid sessions, and thanks to the RBMA Soundcloud, you can go download his collab track with Dorian Concept, Doc Daneeka, half of Tiger And Woods, and more.
LA Riots headline NYC megaclub Pacha this Sunday (no work Monday! Thanks, presidents!) with Savoy, Tim Mason and more. You can get advance tickets here, but we’ll do you one better: FG is giving away complimentary admission to one winner and 3 of their friends, including a reserved VIP table and bottle of champagne, vodka or tequila. Pari taim!
For your chance to win, go “like” the FG Facebook page (and if you’ve already liked it in the past, like the Pacha contest post), and we’ll select a winner Sunday morning.
This Saturday (2/18) Tammany Hall in NYC is the place to be, cause Cubic Zirconia’s Nick Hook and friends are celebrating the birth of the good Doctor. It’s Dre Day and everybody celebrating! Yes, before making headphones the man was responsible for some of the greatest rap tracks of all time. Come hear Nick, Project Matt and Egg Foo Young (aka Ghostly’s own Michna) drop bombs while you sip on gin and juice (open bar Bulldog from 9-10pm!) Get advance tix here.
It’s not all magazine covers and Grammy nominations for A-Trak of course. None of this would be possible without good ole fashioned party rocking. 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! Peep more from him after the jump.
If that’s not enough, check the party on NBC tonight when Danny makes his network television debut on Last Call With Carson Daly, airing tonight (well, Thursday morning if you want to get technical) at 1:35 am after Jimmy Fallon. Set them TiVOs. Read More
