The annual Fool’s Gold Austin extravaganza keeps getting bigger and better! Check out what went down at our official SXSW showcase, our after-hours bash with A$AP Yams at the Illmore, the mega-label Super Party team-up with Mad Decent and Check Yo Ponytail, and more (including Danny Brown proudly accepting an mtvU Video Of The Year Woodie!) in this official recap video.
There’s pics too… check out MTV Hive’s “Family Portraits” backstage at the showcase, B&W shots from Hex, Driven By Boredom’s Super Party pics, and some Illmore shots from Matt Reeves and Brock Fetch, some candids from Jayne Lies at Jungle Gym and behind the scene snaps from Josh Wehle. Some of our faves after the jump. Read More
FG took over MIA once again, putting our own special shine on Miami Music Week with multiple events. A sweaty Grand Central rave? Yes indeed. Infiltrating the Ultra festival? You bet. A rooftop rap party? SOUND DI ALARM!!! See what went down with all our friends and party people in this recap video.
We got pics too! Check out these galleries from Miami New Times, Last Night’s Party, Kirill Was Here, Village Voice, UpNUpDaily, and World Red Eye. (The Poplife folks put together their own video too.) Some selects after the jump… Read More
On December 19th, we celebrated the holiday season once again with our friends at LTD+ and a gang of New York City’s finest party people. Danny Brown and GrandeMarshall brought the raps, DJ Mustard (on the beat hoe!), Just Blaze and Nick Catchdubs held it down on the 1s and 2s, the whole A$AP Mob was in effect, and it was another festive notch in the FG events belt. Watch the recap vid above and check out some flicks from Brook Bobbins after the jump (full gallery here). Read More
Last fall, A-Trak, Flosstradamus and Donnis hit the road for our first ever Fool’s Gold House Party Tour. Check out Noisey’s recap videos (and peep these photo galleries from our bud Kirill Was Here) to see all the madness that went down in basements, frats, and bowling alleys across America. Read More
Ain’t no party like a Fool’s Gold party… we celebrated five years of label-dom in style during CMJ weekend, taking over one of the Converse Rubber Tracks Live nights at Music Hall Of Williamsburg and bringing a bunch of our friends along. The legendary Ghostface Killah headlined alongside A-Trak, Flosstradamus, Donnis (who brought out Trinidad Jame$ and what felt like half of Atlanta onstage), World’s Fair (who did the same for NY with Flatbush Zombies and Tanboys), Nick Catchdubs, Troy Ave, Chase N Cashe, Ryan Hemsworth, the latest member of the FG fam GrandeMarshall and more.
See it all live in the video recap above, and check some great galleries of pics from Gretchen Roibinette at Brooklyn Vegan (our favorites after the jump), Loren Wohl at MTV Hive, Brook Bobbins and Focus Camp. Read More
We brought DAY OFF to Los Angeles last month, throwing our long running NYC bash in Cali for the first time ever. Suffice it to say… it was crazy! The whole fam was in effect, with A-Trak, Danny Brown, Chromeo, Cool Kids, Casey Veggies, Congorock, Oliver, Donnis, Kingdom, Nick Catchdubs and more performing in front of a few thousand of LA’s finest party people. And when it was all said and done, we threw an afterparty with the likes of Dave1, RL Grime, Carnage, Franki Chan… Good times!
Check the recap video above, and check some photos from the Cobrasnake (two galleries!), Shadowscene, Say Cheese And Die, The Source, Shout out to Adidas, Scion, iheartcomix, The Well, the Shrine Auditorium and everyone else who came together to make the first DAY OFF LA so fun! See you again next year… Read More
