Starting this week, people walking the streets and riding the subways of NYC and Brooklyn have been greeted by the handsome trio of FG founders A-Trak, Nick Catchdubs and Dust La Rock, mugging it up for Bushmills’ new “Since Way Back” ad campaign, also featuring portraits of friends Chromeo, DFA, No Mas, and Kai Regan and co. There’s painted wall-size versions (ours is next to Alife Rivington Club), subway ads, and proper billboards throughout the metro area. Keep us posted with your Twitpics, etc when spotted!

Belvedere sent 13th Witness to Coachella to hang with the FG team for an afternoon, and this cool little clip is the result. A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs break it down for a poolside Q&A (shades of Killa!) then they head over to the Anthem Lagoon, where Donnis rocks “Gone” for the bathing suits. Watch it! (More Lagoon pics here and here)

Duck Sauce made their triumphant live DJ debut (which New Times named WMC’s best!), DJ Sneak, Just Blaze and (surprise surprise) Laidback Luke rocked guest sets, and the whole FG DJ family put it down like never before all night at brand-new venue Grand Central in downtown Miami. Check some highlights in our wrap-up clip (once again edited by Lizi Gross) and peep a TON of photo galleries – from GC as well as the Fool’s Gold x Mad Decent “Mad Fools” party later that weekend – after the jump.

As mentioned earlier, A-Trak and Chilly Gonzales teamed up at Joe’s Pub last week. Says A-Trak: “Often times it’s the casual shows, the “oh I’m just doing this on the side for fun” shows that end up being my favorite ones. Maybe it’s because I love to improvise. Or maybe it’s because these are shows I do with my friends, which is fertile ground for creativity. Last year it was my set at the Do Over. This year so far, my favorite performance was this little guest spot I did at Chilly Gonzales’s Piano Talk Show at Joe’s Pub in New York last Thursday. It was barely rehearsed, only 15 minutes in length, and we were both coming in from long flights with little to no sleep. Watch the result, I hope you enjoy it!”

The man, the myth, Gonzales has taken up residency at Joe’s Pub this month for a series of “Piano Talk Shows” – tonight’s edition will feature our own A-Trak and a surprise guest. Will it reach the heights of his AWK piano battle? Check it out and see! And if you can’t make it to Lafayette St this evening, be sure to download Mr G’s amazing, insane new Pianist Envy mixtape.
