About time! Like we do everyspring, the whole fam went down to Austin a few weeks back for SXSW. Our artists had tons of shows and guest sets to hit, but the pieces de resistance were the two FG events: the Texas Takeover at Republic Live, and the official FG SXSW Showcase at Malverde. Strictly best-of-the-best DJs, MCs, and even some new rock-n-rollers. Party! Whistles!
Check the highlight reel above (stitched together by our edit mistress Lizi Gross) and hit the jump for way more pics and video from our Texas tweekend. WMC up next! Read More
Our friends at The Fader premiered a new Treasure Fingers club knocker today, here’s what they had to say:
“For some reason—let’s chalk it up to the longest winter ever—we have a serious yearning for disco right now. Not some crusty Saturday Night Fever antiquities but brand new how am I suddenly dancing in a club in my underwear over the top shit. Apparently, our brainwaves reached Fool’s Gold Records who just sent over Treasure Fingers‘ new song, which sounds exactly like that.”
Calgary’s Hi-Fi Club has been a home away from home for many Fool’s Gold DJs on Canadian runs. So of course we’re psyched that the club’s resident jam-masters Smalltown DJs and Wax Romeo aka Smalltown Romeo are hitting NYC tonight for a guest set at Flashing Lights (88 Palace in Chinatown, RSVP here!!!) alongside Nick Catchdubs, DJ Ayres and Jubilee.
Next weekend our girl is back on the east coast for two massive shows!
On Friday (4/9) she co-headlines Webster Hall with bass titan Rusko, a sure-to-be slammed event which you can grab advance tickets for here OR get in for $1 before midnight with RSVP. Flyer after the jump.
On Saturday she hits Taxlo in Baltimore for a mini “Mad Fools” of sorts with DJ Sega and Nadastrom supporting. It’s also Taxlo resident Cullen Stalin’s b-day party. Advance tickets here. Dance party mania! Read More
For all the beat lovers in NYC who weren’t able to see Jokers Of The Scene at our festival showcases this month… we got you! Check JOTS alongside FG’s Nick Catchdubs and Trouble & Bass-ist Star Eyes at LPR on Wednesday, March 31st. It’s free before 12 (and after 12 if you RSVP, peep flyer for info).
What, you thought we were just going to leave you with ONE party at WMC? We teamed up with Mad Decent for another smash MAD FOOLS bash featuring homies from both rosters (including the return of “DJ Dinosaur” and “DJ Canada”) and a ton of guests and surprises! All night Saturday (3/27) at Electric Pickle downtown, and FREE! Full roster after the jump. Read More
Slow Roast is the new, FG-distributed label from our homies Kill The Noise and Craze. The dynamic duo (and friends) have cooked up some heavy choons for you guys over the past few months, and they’ll start dropping very, very soon. To whet your appetite, they launched their inaugural “Hogcast” series with a minimix from Craze, an extended mix from KTN, a bunch of interview stuff, and more.
Download Hogcast #1 at Media Contender, and read a Q&A with Craze about the label’s origins while you’re at it. If you’re in Austin this week, be sure to come rock out at Slow Roast’s first ever SXSW party (3-8pm on Friday 3/19 @ Barcelona), featuring sets from the label’s founders, friends like 12th Planet, Star Eyes, and our own Nick Catchdubs, and more. Flyer after the jump! Read More
