This Friday’s edition of the Space Cakes party at Hugs (108 N.6th, BKLYN) is going to be a big one. Residents Nick Catchdubs and Rezound are joined by the inimitable Eli Escobar and some “surprise” FG guests. Lets just call them…Soakers Of The Jeans, and one half of the Burrito Rubbers. Why not? BE THERE!

Anyone who’s ever messaged back and forth with our dude Kid Cudi knows that his tmail game is MAJOR, texting like a Prince song title come 2 life. So it’s fitting that Cudi will be performing at a private launch event for T-Mobile next Tuesday (5/20) alongside Kid Capri and new Star Trak artists Chester French (who do not have kid in their name). You can enter to win VIP passes to the party – along with a new phone! – over at RCRD LBL.

Like we mentioned earlier, the NYC kickoff for the Treasure Fingers / Kill The Noise “School’s Out Forever” tour this Wednesday (5/13) is gonna be a special one – it’s doubling as the launch party for Contagious Musiq’s NYC branch, and will feature special guest appearances by Jokers Of The Scene and FG extended familia Craze, Klever and DJ Ayres, along with the Fun DJs Eamon Harkin and Rok One. Come on out to Love (there’s bass in them there walls) and catch something!

Check our man Sammy Bananas this Saturday at Savalas in Brooklyn, DJing with Caps of Caps N Jones. Sam will be dropping party favors like “All The Girls” (and joints off his forthcoming Fool’s Gold 12″) since the night also doubles as his birthday celebration. Go easy on the noogies (or don’t).

The new issue of RE:UP is hitting newstands and mailboxes as we type, featuring guest issue designer Dust La Rock and a cover feature on Chromeo. Select copies also come with a free Fool’s Gold spring CD sampler! Seeing how it’s a such family affair, we are going to be presenting the release party with RE:UP this Friday (5/9) at Trophy Bar in Brooklyn. Tunes will be provided by Dave 1, Egg Foo Young, Queen Majesty, Barthalona From Ibitha and Brougham D’Elegance. RSVP for free entry, otherwise its a measly $5 at the door.

First things first, make sure you check out the official recaps of the Screaming Bloody Murder tour here and here. We did 8 untamed shows in 10 days, it felt like a barbarous blitz of rave riot. Sammy Bananas is the new official mascot of Fool’s Gold and his mustache couldn’t have been more timely. Steve is a dynamo, I don’t know where he gets his energy. And Sinden is my brother from a British mother. I can officially say the 2nd Fool’s Gold tour was a smash hit, and before I could even catch up with any sleep I was off to Coachella. Read More

We thought the only maple leaf news this week was gonna be A-Trak winning a Justo Award for Best Canadian Mixtape DJ. BUUUT NOOOOO! Jokers of the Scene just hit us with this flyer for their monthly Disorganised party. This Friday’s edition (5/2) features their FG labelmates Nacho Lovers as special DJ guests. Expect lots of exclusives, techno (of the minimal and maximal variety), and songs written by Armand. Did we mention techno? Joy! Read More

As Busy P’s expertly Photoshopped show flyer should have told you, this past weekend of jams at the Coachella festival was a veritable FG family reunion. Brothers! Sisters! French cousins! But we’re back now (sunburnt, caffeinated, blogging) and the fruits of our festival self-Googling are yours after the jump. More added as we find ’em. Read More
