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.
Check Nicky Digital’s vid of our girls The Suzan covering Peter Bjorn and John’s “Amsterdam” at the PB&J 10th anniversary party at Bowery Electric on Monday night. He also took some quality flicks of the festivities.
Exactly one week from today you can finally cop Kid Sister’s debut album Ultraviolet in-stores and online. It’s been a long time coming, and we’re super proud of the record and excited for our girl!
Check the preview clips at Amazon.com, full tracklist + production credits after the jump. Also be sure to catch KS rocking with The Roots this Friday on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon, and on her other upcoming tour dates. Read More
