We don’t only shout out our own stuff on ze blog… Starting this Sunday (12/6) in Miami, the house rockin brothers of Made To Play are hitting US shores in support of their new Scion A/V CD, and all the shows are completely FREE with RSVP.
Come check Jesse Rose, Zombie Disco Squad, Oliver $, Idiotproof, and big homie Riva Starr – whose remix of Malente’s “I Like It” has kept Fool’s Gold posted up in the Beatport Top 10 for weeks! The NYC and LA shows even feature guest spots from our girl Gina Turner. Don’t sleep, this is sure to be a thumping good time.
Our very first European label tour kicks off this week in Hamburg, then continues across the continent with A-Trak, Jokers Of The Scene, Congorock and Greenmoney forming like rave Voltron from city to city. If we skipped your town on this inaugural run, don’t worry, there’s more where this came from (plus – the limited Dust La Rock-designed tour tees will be up on the FG webstore for everyone to cop, regardless of locale).
Plymouth Rock goes Planet Rock this week with two massive holiday shows starring Kid Sister, Flosstradamus and various FG fam and friends.
First up is a pre-Thanksgiving bash on Wednesday (11/25) in Chicago where the sibling superstars are joined by Chi house brethren Rob Threezy and the legendary Green Velvet at the House Of Blues. It’s all ages, and you can grab tickets here.
Then on Friday (11/27) the party comes back to NYC with a big Webster Hall show featuring Kid Sis and Floss alongside Donnis (his first NYC show since killing every night of CMJ) and Sammy Bananas. This one is 19+, advance tickets here, or RSVP for $1 entry before midnight. Not to be missed!
Check our girls The Suzan playing at Glasslands in Williamsburg Friday night alongside Crystal Fighters, Lemonade and Tanlines. That flyer is a pretty accurate description of what’s gonna happen to your brain.
Congorock’s Japan tour kicks off this weekend and it has its own commercial! (Doesn’t it remind you of the “Space Shower TV” segments from old Nirvana tapes?) Click here for flyer / dates, plus his recently leaked Crookers collab “Sbombers.”
MTV News caught up with our man Donnis the other day, check his interview with Mixtape Daily in the handy video viewer. And if you’re in LA, check Donnis rocking in person at BMI’s “Know Them Now: New Faces Of Hip Hop” show at the Viper Room with Big Sean and more, flyer here.
Check Kid Sister ripping it up on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon from Friday night. Crowd participation! Special shout to J2K of Flosstradamus for being the 2nd man to proudly rock a FG tee inside 30 Rock!
In case you missed em: download A-Trak’s costumed set from “The Boo Over” right here, and a recording of his I Love Techno set at Annie Mac’s blog. And if you’d like to hear our bud talk with more than his hands, check out this East Village Radio show where Trizzy pontificates on the state of independent labels with the heads of Glassnote, DFA and French Kiss.
