Fresh off celebrating their anniversary – and being named “Best New Party” by Paper Magazine – Flashing Lights, the monthly danceathon spearheaded by FG’s Nick Catchdubs and fellow DJs Ayres and Jubilee, returns this Saturday (11/13) at Public Assembly in Brooklyn.
This month their special guest is another Fool: Sammy Bananas! Don’t miss out on fresh jams from SB (including “Move Your Body” off the new Fool’s Gold compilation LP) and the rest of the crew tomorrow night!
The last batch went in an instant, so the good folks of Pacha have given us 4 more passes to see Congorock and Benny Benassi on Friday night in NYC. To sweeten the deal, we’re also gonna throw in a Congo tee (as shown by FG intern Lindsay above) to the 1st person to leave their name in the comments. Go go go!
Done! Congrats everybody. You can still get tickets at the door if you want to go Friday. And Congorock tees (and other FG merch) is always for sale at our webstore.
Congorock’s North American trek comes to NYC this Friday (11/12), with a stop in our fair city’s superclub, Pacha. He’ll be rinsing it out alongside dance hero Benny Benassi, and you can win free tickets to the night right here on the FG blog! We have 5 pairs to give away to the first folks to tweet (or Facebook or reblog it, whatever’s clever) this link and post it in the comments. And if you don’t make the giveaway cutoff, fret not – regular tickets are still available, info after the jump. Read More
You can get Kingdom’s latest track “Remember” (featuring Tiombe Lockhart of Cubic Zirconia) on the Fool’s Gold Vol 1 compilation, out now on iTunes, Beatport and exclusive CD version at Opening Ceremony.
Chromeo kick off the Euro leg of their “Business Casual” tour tonight in Dublin with Midnight Juggernauts, check all the dates here. You can also peep some behind the scenes stills from their upcoming video for “Hot Mess,” like the one above. Law and order!
The Suzan make their Los Angeles live debut this Tuesday (11/2), rocking the Dim Mak party at Cinespace. Don’t miss it (or the special guest, neither).
Also: check this lengthy post on the girls from Amy of Titus Andronicus that dips into Japanese history, philosophy, and all the reasons why they are awesome. To wit:
“The Suzan, like Sharon Jones, is making hits that would be just at home on the radios of the 1950’s as they would today. But they’re also like Sleigh Bells. Don’t ignore the fact that they’re crafting something entirely new—a vision of pop that draws on punk and on Motown, on riot grrrl and on a post-feminist future. It’s a vision of a world in which I, for one, would like to participate. And I hope you will too.”
Rocco returns to the land of the free this week for a bunch of sure-to-be crazy shows. Solo parties, team-ups with Bloody Beetroots and Benny Benassi, and even a spooktacular Halloween set with A-Trak at Hard Haunted Mansion. Full dates after the jump.
The latest jam to emerge from Congorock studios is this remix of Mark Ronson’s Boy George (!!!) collab “Somebody To Love Me,” which you can stream below.
