Our man Sammy Bananas (proud possessor of that potassium-packed press photo – WHO GWAN TEST MI ALLITERATION?!?) will be up in Canada for two shows this coming weekend, first at Wunderbar in Montreal on Friday (2/22) then at the Drake in Toronto on Saturday (2/23) teaming up with labelmate Treasure Fingers.

Following my last post about Good Vibrations, we’re now on the 2nd and final weekend of the Australian traveling festival. On the agenda: Sydney and the far-away Perth. People had been hyping up this Sydney show for the whole week. This would be the bigger, badder, deffer show of the bunch. We got there, scoped out the grounds as we rode around in our buggy and saw the masses of people undulating in the huge park… yep, this was gonna be a good one. Read More
Good on ya, mates!
(That’s a little deeper in Aussie slang than the obvious “g’day”)
I’m reporting live via my hotel room in Sydney. I’m out here doing the Good Vibrations festival. In Australia they have these festivals that hit multiple cities. It’s like being part of a traveling circus for 10 days. A traveling techno circus. Read More
UNTZ UNTZ UNTZ? VROOOO VROOOOO? CHHHHK wiggledywiggldy CKKKKKKKKKKKRRRRKKKKK?!?!? Yep, they got all that and more. Our dudes in MSTRKRFT are hitting the road with Fool’s Gold’s own LA Riots and distorto disco brothers in arms the Bloody Beetroots and Lazaro Casanova. The trek kicks off on 2/26 in Seattle and goes all the way through SXSW and the Winter Music Conference in March. Some stops on the tour will be MSTRKRFT-only affairs (take that, vowels!) but to help you out with your revelry plans, we copied and pasted all the LA Riots dates after the jump. BAM! Read More
It’s a complete coincidence that Kid Sister and I were booked to perform at New York and LA’s Museums of Natural History on consecutive weekends. The events were unrelated, we’re not on a museum tour or anything.
Both turned out to be awesome in their own way. You already saw what the New York one was like last week… Kiiiinda crazy, with the surprise appearance of a fur-clad Kanyeezy. That one was in the planetarium, so it was very much a multi-media themed room. The LA show this weekend was a lot more like what you’d expect to see in a museum of natural history: a giant dinosaur skeleton when you walk in and a bunch of displays of impeccably preserved yaks, bisons, sea lions (those things are big!) and other cuddly creatures in simulated home habitat backdrops. How many times did I yell “stegosaurus!” on the mic during my set? One may never know. Read More
Flavorpill, Pitchfork, Brooklyn Vegan, Nicky Digital (with video too!), Metromix…we’re still trying to collect as many shots from this past weekend’s Natural History fun explosion (the Roc was in the building!) as possible, so post any links we missed in the comments. Video coming soon! Check A-Trak and Kid Sister take their museum mayhem to Los Angeles tonight (2/1).
This Friday (2/1) new Fool’s Gold signing Treasure Fingers will be DJing at Hugs in Brooklyn (108 North 6th St between Berry and Wythe). It’s free and there will be complimentary Bushmills from 10-11. Big things for this dude in 2008, so get on board early! Treasure Fingers’ debut Fool’s Gold 12″ “Cross The Dancefloor” will be out shortly, backed by some very major remixes – you can hear the original on his recent mix for In-Deed on XM, tracklist and download link (and flyer for Friday) after the jump.
