Jokers Of The Scene’s “Bright Black Magick” Tour with Acid Girls finishes up real big in LA a week from tonight at Discotheque. Don’t miss out! Full details at the Discotheque site, advance tix here. Meanwhile tonight they are in SF for Popscene, and hit Chicago on the 10th. JOTS ARE LOOSE!
Shout to Good Peoples for throwing it with us and Mishka for printing up a most excellent collab tee draw-ed by Dust La Rock! You can grab the remaining shirts at the Mishka store in BK or on their website but act fast!
We threw two parties in NYC to celebrate the label’s 2nd anniversary during this past CMJ fest – if you missed em, you missed out! Fortunately, we scoured the interweb to collect all the photo galleries, etc (hit us up if you have any more).
Check out Karmaloop’s great recap of Night #1 at 88 Palace above, which featured sets by Kingdom, Donnis (joined onstage by fellow ATLien Pill), Treasure Fingers, Sammy Bananas (who even rocked some Telephoned tracks with partner Maggie Horn), Trackademicks and the Honor Roll crew, and – a first for FG! – live band performances by Vega and The Suzan. Hi-Fi Cartel, Metromix, and The Culture Of Me got some pics, Billboard spoke to A-Trak for a video interview, and Beatcakes had a nice little blog post highlighting The Suzan (“probably one of the best shows I have seen in my life”).
For Night #2 we went with an all-DJ lineup at N8 in Brooklyn, featuring Jokers Of The Scene, LA Riots, Nacho Lovers and extended fam Udachi + Jubilee (Jamie from the xx was slated to play as well, but his band’s set ran late – we’ll get him in the mix soon enough!). You can check pics over at Driven By Boredom. Special thanks to Chicago’s own Thunder Horse for providing live projections / bugged visuals for both nights of festivities! See you for the 3-year bash soon…
Check out the newly launched Congorock.com for the latest and greatest from our boy Rocco, including Australia tour diaries, upcoming dates, and mp3 surprises like this collaboration with Crookers entitled “Sbombers” that was originally slated for the Crooks’ Grand Theft Auto radio channel, but ended up as a web treat instead.
For more Congorock (and Crookers) goodies, listen into this Mischief Night guest spot from Shark on The Fader’s “The Let Out” on East Village Radio. Yelling! And if you’re in Japan this month, check Congorock on tour – flyer after the jump. Read More
