Plymouth Rock goes Planet Rock this week with two massive holiday shows starring Kid Sister, Flosstradamus and various FG fam and friends.
First up is a pre-Thanksgiving bash on Wednesday (11/25) in Chicago where the sibling superstars are joined by Chi house brethren Rob Threezy and the legendary Green Velvet at the House Of Blues. It’s all ages, and you can grab tickets here.
Then on Friday (11/27) the party comes back to NYC with a big Webster Hall show featuring Kid Sis and Floss alongside Donnis (his first NYC show since killing every night of CMJ) and Sammy Bananas. This one is 19+, advance tickets here, or RSVP for $1 entry before midnight. Not to be missed!
Check Kid Sister ripping it up on Late Night With Jimmy Fallon from Friday night. Crowd participation! Special shout to J2K of Flosstradamus for being the 2nd man to proudly rock a FG tee inside 30 Rock!
As you might have read on ze Rolling Stone, Kid Sister is hitting the road next month in support of her long awaited debut Ultraviolet (in stores 11/17) and new single “Right Hand Hi” (which, if you haven’t copped yet, you can grab here thanks to our friends at RCRD LBL). Whoo!

We definitely believe in the power of smart partnerships and teamwork over at FG HQ, which is probably why one of our earliest outside supporters was fellow start-up RCRD LBL, who built their whole site around supporting artists and presenting great selections of free, authorized new music.
We’ve done free downloads and track debuts with RCRD LBL for almost as long as we’ve been a label ourselves, and this Tuesday (7.14) we’re linking up with them yet again for the 1st RCRD LBL “Friends & Family Meet Up” from 7-10pm at Le Poisson Rouge in NYC. Reps from the family of labels involved on the site (Fool’s Gold, Ghostly, Warp, etc) will be premiering tons of brand new and unreleased music – and generally just kicking it – so come through and start your evening with us!
To get you psyched, hit the jump to download ALL of the free Fool’s Gold music available on RCRD LBL – tracks, remixes (our own as well as jams our artists have crafted for others), mixtapes and more. Over 50 tracks! Read More
This is the last weekend at Brooklyn’s Studio B EVER, so come do it big with FG fam Flosstradamus, Nick Catchdubs and the rest of the Flashing Lights crew! 19+ for the young’uns, gonna be big. RSVP at flashinglightslightslights.com for reduced entry and grab all the previous FL promo mixes (#3, #2, #1) to whet your appetite. Rave juice!
The latest edition of our blog Q&A series of friends-n-fam brain pickage features none other than Chicago sons Flosstradamus, who recently took a bit of a break from touring to focus on production and studio work, including their debut single with Caroline from Chairlift, De La Soul’s recent Nike+ project Are You In and a slew of remixes including Trackademicks’ “Enjoy What You Do” and this Totally Michael mix, a collab with FG’s DJ Gant-Man.
After the jump, J2K drops knowledge behind-the-scenes of all those productions, as well as what its like to have your face plastered across billboards throughout the country, and the pitfalls of buying synths on Craigslist. Read More
The latest Nike+ exercise mix (where’d we hear about those before?) comes courtesy of our good buds Flosstradamus, who mix together a batch of brand-new De La Soul tracks (the trio’s first new material in years!) for a seamless running/listening experience. We will refrain from making a potholes in my lawn reference here. Oops too late! Download it from iTunes today!
Along with our own Saturday night megashowcase at White Room, the members of the Fool’s Gold family will be performing at a litany of other events throughout WMC this weekend, everything from afternoon pool parties to all-rap throwdowns to Fergie’s birthday (seriously, JOTS are gonna take lady lumps to the rave cave). Check the full listing after the jump.
