The Hard LA festival goes down this Saturday (7.19) at the Shrine Expo Center in LA. Get your advance tickets now or just roll up on the day of, there’s going to be a bunch of Fools and friends on stage, including A-Trak and LA Riots. Kid Sister had to cancel the date so she can finish her album, but she’s being replaced by new FG recording artist Rutger Hauer. Sike we didn’t sign Rutger Hauer. One day though…
Hey people of select American cities! Come party – for free! – with FG’s own Treasure Fingers and some guys named Fred Falke and Franki Chan we never heard of before in our life. Gotcha! Go and RSVP over at www.scion.com/houseparty and head down to the Viper Room in LA (7.9), the Beauty Bar in Austin (7.10) and the Talking Head in Baltimore (7.16) for the value-packed festivities.
Two Fool’s Gold-related remixes from Thunderheist’s new “Jerk It” single have officially leaked to the internet (word to Nas!). You can download the JOTS version of the track at Fluokids and the Nacho Lovers version at Discobelle.
Save the date! This Saturday (6/14) is the first of two supersized Fool’s Gold events at Central Park’s SummerStage. Kid Sister will be performing alongside Vampire Weekend, Born Ruffians, and master of ceremonies Andrew WK (?!?!?) all for a suggested donation of five bucks. Full info here. While you have your calendar out, be sure to circle Sunday, July 20th for the very fun (and very free) “Mad Fools” extravaganza, featuring Santogold, Diplo, A-Trak and Kid Cudi. Doin it at the park, doin it after dark, oh yeah!
