Speaking of awards…this past April, the winners of the annual Mixtape Awards (aka the Justos, in honor of their founder, the late Justo Faison) were announced at a ceremony in NYC. Lo and behold, right at the top of the list for “Best Canadian Mixtape DJ” was Fool’s Gold’s very own A-Trak.

But we’re back now (sunburnt, caffeinated, blogging) and the fruits of our festival self-Googling are yours after the jump. More added as we find ‘em. Read More
More asbestos! More asbestos! Um, we mean “blogs.” Check out video, pics and gum-flapping from our shows in Chicago, Vancouver, Seattle, and San Francisco over at thefader.com.
The Fool’s Gold fam will be at the Coachella festival this weekend getting
sunburnt beyond belief radical tans and playing some music. On Sunday, you can check A-Trak and Kid Sister on the Gobi Stage and Chromeo on the Sahara Stage (full festival calendar here) and on Saturday you can check LA Riots, Flosstradamus, Nick Catchdubs and XXXChange playing the boosted mobile “Desert Poppin Pool Party” at the Mod Resort, 10 minutes away from the festival grounds (RSVP is a must).
The Fool’s Gold x Dim Mak “Screaming Bloody Murder” North American tour kicks off this Thursday, and in case the above trailer by the Thunder Horse bros didn’t make it crystal clear, we are coming to your town to EXPLODE YOUR BRAIN.
Live deejay musics from…A-Trak! Sinden! Steve Aoki! Sammy Bananas! Special motherfucking guests! Opening night is on 4/10 at Hiro Ballroom in NYC (check this FBI flyer courtesy of Mark Cobrasnake, who will be at Hiro snapping away), followed by bashes in Toronto, Montreal, Philadelphia, Chicago, Vancouver, Seattle, and San Francisco.
