March madness! Like we always do at this time, Team FG is going to be bumrushing a music festival near you with some unforgettable parties featuring the whole fam.
First up, our annual SXSW bash, back at Austin’s Palm Door (remember this one?) on Friday, March 18th with A-Trak, Donnis, Cubic Zirconia, Danny Brown, The Suzan, AraabMuzik, Kingdom, Telephoned, Party Supplies and Nick Catchdubs on the decks between acts all night. It’s an official festival showcase, which means SXSW badges / wristbands get in free all night. (There will be some limited tix for sale at the door.)
The following weekend, we head down to Miami to once again tear the roof off our downtown home Grand Central, rolling with an insane roster of superfriends including A-Trak, Kenny Dope, Riva Starr, Just Blaze, Treasure Fingers, Congorock, LA Riots, Jokers Of The Scene, Nacho Lovers, Kingdom, Nick Catchdubs, Sammy Bananas and…special surprise guests?
