As you eagerly count down the minutes in your cubicle (or kick back stealing wireless in your shared bohemian “artist” dwelling) waiting for the weekend to begin so you can go all Loverboy on its ass, we figured the least we could do is type up a handy guide to all the Fool’s Gold-related events popping off around the globe over the next few days, so you know exactly where to go and what to do.

The Australian sensations and witty young gents known to the world as Bag Raiders hit our fair city for a freebie show tonight @ Plan B (339 E. 10th St @ Ave B) sponsored by Scion Radio. Midnight Juggernauts, Tittsworth, Ayres, and Blu Jemz will also be playing DJ sets, so be sure to roll through.
Last week I started a new weekly in Brooklyn called FLASHING LIGHTS with my main d’amies DJ Ayres and Jubilee. The first one featured Klever as a special guest and was fun as hell (pics here), but I forgot to post the flyer on the FG blog beforehand. D’oh! Never again! The next few editions are going to be just as dope, and to go along with it, the three of us whipped together this promo mix featuring some of the tunes we’re dropping at the party – which is FREE every Friday night @ Public Assembly on North 6th St in Brooklyn (aka the old Galapagos). Download the mix here and check the tracklist after the jump. Read More
Tomorrow (9.4) there’s an afterparty for the Toronto International Film festival, starring our own Jokers Of The Scene and Nacho Lovers (and someone apparently named after the Cru album, which is enjoyable in its own right). Check em out at the Drake.
Bussed it over to the Izod Center in Jersey last night to check out Nine Inch Nails. I’m not a stadium rock dude by any means but sometimes you gotta go for it. Arriving shortly before the end of Does It Offend You, Yeah?‘s opening set which was audibly forgettable to say the least, I took the opportunity to grab some tasty chicken fingers (Meadowlands Mustard!), fries, and a $8 Budweiser (totally expensable right guys?).

Tomorrow (8.26) at Las Vegas’ Jet @ the Mirage, Fool’s Gold’s own Treasure Fingers and Nick Catchdubs will be spinning streetwear jamz at the Triple 5 Soul x Vapors x BPM party for the MAGIC tradeshow, alongside good buds Steve Aoki and Peanut Butter Wolf. It’s free with RSVP, so send em in!
