This Saturday (tomorrow!) we’re proud to present Dust La Rock’s “Best Of The Beast” show at Commonwealth in Norfolk VA (FYI, this is the Virginia Commonwealth, not the DC store. Don’t worry DC, we love you too and will be there soon!)
Nick Catchdubs will be providing the tunes, and we’ll be debuting a devilishly exclusive Dust La Rock x Commonwealth “Best Of The Beast” t-shirt. Limited quantities of the shirt will be available on the Commonwealth webstore next week. Out-of-towners can also purchase actual art pieces from the show on Dust La Rock’s gallery site.
As mentioned earlier, the A-Trak x Dust La Rock x Kidrobot “Grateful Bear” drops tomorrow at all Kidrobot stores and fine toy retailers around the globe. To celebrate, Trizzy n Duster are giving their NYC pals a chance to pick theirs up early at a signing at the Kidrobot store in NYC tonight from 6-8pm, followed by a free afterparty at Annex with music by Trouble & Bass and new FG fam Kingdom. Ce-le-brate good times, c’moaawnnn!
So you saw the pics from Dust La Rock’s gallery show Best Of The Beast (hailed everywhere from MTV News and the Village Voice to Diddy’s Twitter) and wished you could have been in the building? Or purchase some of those mindbending museum-quality prints for your own wall? We got you!
The entire BOTB collection is now up on the DLR website, where collectors can purchase pieces from this extremely limited run of signed and numbered Giclée prints beautifully printed on archival paper and canvas. Don’t miss out on the debut collection from our favorite artist in the world (we’re biased, but it’s true!)
If that’s not enough, Dust is taking Best Of The Beast mobile, with an installation this month at Commonwealth in Norfolk, VA. The opening party is July 11th, featuring a DJ set from Nick Catchdubs, Fool’s Gold giveaways, and the release of an exclusive Dust La Rock x Commonwealth t-shirt. Check the flyer after the jump, we’ll see you there! Read More
Next Wednesday (July 1st) following the “Grateful Bear” signing / release event at the Kidrobot store in Soho, A-Trak, Dust La Rock and the rest of the fam take the celebration over to Trouble & Bass’ new party No Escape From NY downstairs at Annex. Our own Kingdom will be providing tunes along with the T&B selectors (including birthday girl Star Eyes!), there will be giveaways from both labels – and maybe a surprise or two?!?! Don’t miss out! Free with RSVP, full details over at Facebook.
Kid Cudi’s “Make Her Say” (aka “I Poke Her Face”) is officially out on iTunes in properly mixed + mastered format, and you can purchase by clicking the lil iTunes widget. Dust La Rock on the type treatment!
Your eyes don’t deceive you – yes, that is the furry creature Dust La Rock dreamed up for various A-Trak projects made real. Or as real as an 8 inch plastic toy can be! Kidrobot will be releasing this limited edition (only 500 pieces made for the world!) “Grateful Bear” figure – complete with gold-plated necklace, leather cuff, cotton sweatband, snow-capped igloo, fitted baseball hat and wayfarers – on July 2nd at Kidrobot stores, kidrobot.com, and select retailers. As a bonus, A-Trak and Dust will be signing the figure a day earlier at the Kidrobot store in NYC.

Last Thursday’s “Best Of The Beast” opening was the place to be, as a couple hundred of our best friends and fam came out for Fool’s Gold art director Dust La Rock’s debut solo show. Queen Majesty, Vin Sol, Nick Catchdubs and Dave1 spun the tunes, Red Stripe and Vitamin Water provided refreshments, Fader debuted their new issue, Worship Worthy made sure everything ran smoothly and a literal who’s who of NYC’s creative community brought infinite good vibes to celebrate one of their own.
