Word is still spreading about our afterparties in Austin this year with iheartcomix, Past Yo Bedtime. Dancing! Sweating! Raving! In a damn shopping mall!
We put together two nights of revelry featuring A-Trak, Treasure Fingers, Nadastrom, Just Blaze, Brodinski, Drop The Lime, Kastle, Flosstradamus, Nick Catchdubs, Franki Chan, Proper Villains, Jackie Chain, Penguin Prison, Sammy Bananas and more. Check the recap video for a taste of the vibes, and some of our favorite photos (by Trevor M. Banta and Jenni Westbrook) after the jump, full gallery here. There’s also a gallery of gumball machine portraits by Tommy B here. Read More
Check Danny Brown performing “Radio Head” (shout out to Samiyam!) live at The Fader’s private “Icon Issue” release party in NYC this past Tuesday. Danny’s featured in the new issue (Biggie cover, pick it up now it at a newsstand near you) and his DJ for the night, Nick Catchdubs, contributed a guest Vinyl Archaeology column to boot. For more from the party, peep Mel D Cole and Dorothy Hong’s photo galleries.
Donnis filmed a quick clip for his Southern Lights mixtape banger “Get Up, Get Out” at the ATL release party, check it out! He also just dropped a remix to blog-n-b favorites The Weeknd’s “Loft Music,” and is headed to Chicago this Friday (4/29) to perform at the Creme De La Creme party at House Of Blues, RSVP here.
As far as music video concepts go, the setup for Holy Ghost!’s new single “Wait And See” is a real winner. The clip follows Nick and Alex through a day in a life of a young n happening Brooklyn disco band on the make – studio, parties, girls, record shopping, pizza – except the guys are played by their actual fathers. Every detail is spot on and perfect, down to the guys’ personal wardrobes, including the Fool’s Gold tee pictured above. Cinema!
A-Trak is back with another edition of his Around The World tour diary series, on a snazzy new website to boot! Check it out for all the fun from our Coachella trek last weekend, where the “giant A” made its debut.
See the stage insanity for yourself when the Magic 8 Ball Tour hits a town near you! A-Trak, Kid Sister and The Gaslamp Killer wilding out for your partytime enjoyment. They just wrapped a week of shows in the South, check out Kirill Was Here’s photos to see what went down, and check some of our favorites after the jump.
(Soundtrack: Rogerseventytwo “You Take Me Higher,” out soon on FG!)
