GB’s been all over the place this past week – posted up at his release party, hitting the airways, and getting busy on the road with A-Trak and friends for the 10,000LB Hamburger Tour. Joshua Lekach even caught him cooling out in the freezer, as pictured above. Send in your own sightings and we’ll post the best ones every week! You can still buy a bear of your own at Kidrobot, Turntable Lab and wherever fine ursine products are sold.

Last Thursday’s “Best Of The Beast” opening was the place to be, as a couple hundred of our best friends and fam came out for Fool’s Gold art director Dust La Rock’s debut solo show. Queen Majesty, Vin Sol, Nick Catchdubs and Dave1 spun the tunes, Red Stripe and Vitamin Water provided refreshments, Fader debuted their new issue, Worship Worthy made sure everything ran smoothly and a literal who’s who of NYC’s creative community brought infinite good vibes to celebrate one of their own.
Check out these full photo galleries from Ian Meyer, Nicky Digital, Driven By Boredom (who also shot the event for Village Voice, Village Slum (a bunch more on Flickr too), as well as some recaps at Street Level, Hypebeast, RCRD LBL and Herald De Paris. Dust, Trizzy and Catch filmed a MTV News interview which should be up shortly, and in the meantime you can check some video of the show from Bongoboy along with A-Trak’s Flipcam Q&As with Haze and Sammy Bananas (along with some of our photo gallery favorites) after the jump.

This year’s edition of the Fool’s Gold WMC Spectacular was our second consecutive year tearing down White Room in downtown Miami, and we finally got back all the pics and video documenting the fun-splosion. After a packed weekend of shows, we started the day bum rushing the Stones Throw pool party, killed a giant family dinner at the steakhouse, then hit the clurb. Along with all the FG fam rocking on stage (Sammy Bananas, Nick Catchdubs, Treasure Fingers, Jokers Of The Scene and Nacho Lovers – who took over the whole side room for a night of deeeeeeep house and techno) we played host to special guests Steve Aoki, DJ Mehdi, a rare Annie Mac x Fake Blood tag team, and hometown hero Craze, who ended his set by rocking with A-Trak in an epic impromptu scratch session.
We went the whole night long, staying packed long after the other shows closed down (and gave us second and third winds as the party people trickled in). Check the pics and video after the jump, and Ian Meyer’s full photo gallery here. Also peep A-Trak and Mehdi’s solo blog recaps. Read More

Meanwhile check some of Bronques’ pics from the Bacardi B Live show with A-Trak, Chromeo, and Kid Sister, as well as Stones Throw’s pics from their Hella International party where the Brothers Macklovitch DJed (and Cosmo Baker met Cozmo D from Newcleus, Gaslamp Killer dropped dubstep heaters, Pase Rock styled on em, Dances With White Girls fell asleep, Catchdini proclaimed “Clipse album cuts will be to the next five years of Stones Throw WMCs what Ghostface album cuts were to the last five” and numerous other hijinks…)

The Fool’s Gold After Dark showcase in Austin last week was insane in every possible way, from the turnout (line down the block and around the corner all night!) to the tunes, as the whole roster dropped stellar sets packed with new joints and dence detonators. Even when the sound unceremoniously got cut during Mehdi’s set due to arcane Austin liquor laws, he still managed to smash it! Kid Cudi came through and surprised us with a quick set, fans and well-wishers included everyone from Clinton Sparks and Steve “Buddy” Aoki to MCs like Curren$y, Mistah FAB and Izza Kizza, and an amazing time was had by all.
Thanks to everyone at Scion, Palm Door/Beauty Bar and Red Stripe for lending a hand, and thanks to all the shutterbugs who put their pics on Flickr to make this wrapup possible, Catch lost his camera while crowdsurfing shirtless later in the week (smoove….) but the FG Flip cam made it back alive with video.
If you have more pics or video from the night, send em in! (Update: like this!) Now hit the jump for the goods! See you next year AWWWWWWstin! Read More
