We threw our 2nd annual CMJ showcase (and one-year anniversary party!) this past Thursday at Webster Hall in NYC. There was much cake, revelry and tunes from the crew, here’s the photo galleries and related linkery:
– Driven By Boredom photos (whole show / Kid Sis / Voice selects)
– Last Night’s Party photos
– Behind-the-scenes glamour shots (and Q&As) from Metromix
– Prefix Mag photos (more on Flickr)
– End-of-night foolishness captured by Nicky Digital
– NY Times story on CMJ merch w/ Kid Sis tee
My personal highlights include Nacho Lovers playing Circle Children’s “Zulu” while giving Armand a pound, Gant-Man’s epic hypeman skills keeping up with Kid Sister’s set, Dave1’s extra dapper suit, and of course being able to rock with practically the whole FG fam (Nachos, JOTS and Trackademicks stuck around all CMJ weekend so we’ve been handling photo shoots and meetings alongside late night ridiculousness and more food than I’ve ever eaten in my life. Call me Nick Fatdubs). Special shout-out to Scion for sponsoring the show and to Kenny and the whole Webster Hall team for making sure our champagne glasses were filled up.

I’ve been attending mastering sessions for the Kid Sister album in London… but somehow finishing songs at the same time. We had 3 different engineers mix one song once the mastering had already started. Kinda crazy. Anyway, been consumed by this Dream Date CD, as evidenced by my beard.
One song left to master! (That one.)
It’s late. Back to work.
Oh and this album is nuts.

That’s not Kid Sister or Pase Rock, it is a Popeye’s Chicken Burrito
You might know FG friend Tittsworth from his club remixes (and break records!), or his impromptu stint as Kid Sister’s hypeman on the Good Vibrations tour in Australia. Now you can add “solo artist” to the mix, since he has a debut album coming out next Tuesday called 12 Steps on Plant Music. Kid Sis returns the favor by guesting on his single “WTF” alongside Pase Rock, and you can grab the “WTF” mp3 (and read a quick Q&A with Tittsworth about the making of the album) over at the Fader blog.

This weekend Kid Sis (backed by her Flosstradamus bros) rocked Hullabalooza alongside Cypress Hill, Smashing Pumpkins and Peter Frampton. Coverage from MTV here and here.

I spent the whole day at XXXChange’s crib working on a new track for the Kid Sister album, which is coming out crazy. When we finally left we got in the car and I heard this joint on the radio that sounded like Alex’s bassline from “Backyard Betty” with a Cool Kids-ish hook and a rapper that sounded like Young Chris. It’s the new Bathgate song, “Pockets Full Of Money”. I like!
