Dust La Rock x Commonwealth Recap

Posted on Jul 17th, 2009

This past weekend the FG fam loaded up our hovercraft and sped down to Norfolk, VA for the opening of Dust La Rock’s “Best Of The Beast” show at Commonwealth’s flagship store. Dust’s pieces looked as stunning as the tattooed mamis at the party, Nick Catchdubs provided nuff tunes (including hidden Fam-Lay gems and a gang of FG exclusives that Virginia was first to ever hear live), and we were greeted by a team of Hampton Roads’ finest, including Chad Hugo of Neptunes / N*E*R*D fame. Check out pics from the night from Commonwealth and Flash You’re Famous – we’ll be linking up more as we get them, though unfortunately no pics exist of the donk exhibition outside 7-11 later that night, or the epic Bojangles meal the following morning.

The opening also marked the debut of Commonwealth’s limited edition Best Of The Beast tee, a Hell’s Satans-worthy garment that you can purchase online while they last. More C’mon x FG collabs coming soon, as well as further graphic awesomeness from the man, the mystery, The Duster.

Chromeo vs NYC

Posted on Jul 17th, 2009

Attention all Chromettes and Funkateers! Tickets for Chromeo’s only NYC-area show this fall went on sale today. It’s gonna sell out, so cop tix early if you want to check the dynamic duo (perhaps with some special FG guests?) performing at Irving Plaza on October 16th.

Dave and Pee won’t be doing any other gigs because they have to finish writing and recording album number three. Whet your appetite with a brand-new track off Chromeo’s forthcoming DJ Kicks compilation, an amazing cover of the Eagles’ “I Can’t Tell You Why” that you can download for free at chromeo-djkicks.com.

Flyer Foolin

Posted on Jul 16th, 2009

The calendar section coming up on our new website is gonna be crayjeeee, but until then the best place to keep up with tour dates for the whole Fool’s Gold family is our MySpace and Twitter, which we keep updated daily with the comings (ayo!) and goings of the FG fam. That said – we can’t neglect the regular ol’ blog neither!

Here’s a bunch of flyers for gigs coming up this weekend, including DJ Gant-Man and Jokers Of The Scene rocking separate parties in Chicago tonight (JOTS also hit SD on Saturday), LA Riots and Nick Catchdubs in NYC Friday along with Sammy Bananas with Switch in LA, Treasure Fingers in Vancouver and Andrew Ross of Nacho Lovers in Toronto that same night (he’s reunited with the other Nacho in Calgary Saturday), and of course the ‘Burger trio who stay hitting towns near you on the DAILY (including SF tonight with Trackademicks).

FLS GLD RCRDS

Posted on Jul 13th, 2009

We definitely believe in the power of smart partnerships and teamwork over at FG HQ, which is probably why one of our earliest outside supporters was fellow start-up RCRD LBL, who built their whole site around supporting artists and presenting great selections of free, authorized new music.

We’ve done free downloads and track debuts with RCRD LBL for almost as long as we’ve been a label ourselves, and this Tuesday (7.14) we’re linking up with them yet again for the 1st RCRD LBL “Friends & Family Meet Up” from 7-10pm at Le Poisson Rouge in NYC. Reps from the family of labels involved on the site (Fool’s Gold, Ghostly, Warp, etc) will be premiering tons of brand new and unreleased music – and generally just kicking it – so come through and start your evening with us!

To get you psyched, hit the jump to download ALL of the free Fool’s Gold music available on RCRD LBL – tracks, remixes (our own as well as jams our artists have crafted for others), mixtapes and more. Over 50 tracks! Read More

Virginia Is For (Fool's Gold) Lovers

Posted on Jul 10th, 2009

This Saturday (tomorrow!) we’re proud to present Dust La Rock’s “Best Of The Beast” show at Commonwealth in Norfolk VA (FYI, this is the Virginia Commonwealth, not the DC store. Don’t worry DC, we love you too and will be there soon!)

Nick Catchdubs will be providing the tunes, and we’ll be debuting a devilishly exclusive Dust La Rock x Commonwealth “Best Of The Beast” t-shirt. Limited quantities of the shirt will be available on the Commonwealth webstore next week. Out-of-towners can also purchase actual art pieces from the show on Dust La Rock’s gallery site.

Theophilus London Added To A-Trak's 10,000LB Hamburger Tour

Posted on Jul 6th, 2009

Right as the 10,000LB Hamburger Tour was kicking off this weekend, we found out that Rye Rye had to drop off the trek. But hip-hop don’t stop, so we are psyched to announce the addition of Theophilus London to A-Trak’s state-to-state calvacade of goodtimes (Treasure Fingers is still holding it down, along with all other previously announced special guests). If you’re not familiar with Theo’s particular brand of mic science, check this Fader profile, download his debut mixtape, and give a listen to his latest jam, a remix of The Very Best’s “Warm Heart Of Africa” featuring our boy Ezra Koenig.

Theo hops on the tour 7/11 in Houston – full lineup and ticket info after the jump! Also be sure to follow A-Trak, Treasure Fingers and Mr London on Twitter for the latest and greatest in room service mayhem AS IT HAPPENS. Read More
