As mentioned earlier, the launch party for the Project is this weekend in NYC featuring our own Nacho Lovers and a bounty of other amazing acts. If you missed the RSVP, don’t fret, we’re going to be involved in future CP events around the globe. Stay tuned!
Rappin Ass Thursdays, the column you know and love, comes to life in the Chi this week in the form of a new monthly party of the same name at Beauty Bar. The tunes are provided by Flosstradamus and special guest (and RAT curator) Nick Catchdubs. Come through this Thursday, dougie will be taught!
It’s a mini-Mad Fools this weekend, with our own Treasure Fingers and Nick Catchdubs taking over the decks for Webster Hall’s Friday night festivities (recent recipient of a New York mag shout) while Mad Decent spitfire Maluca rocks it live as only she can. The party is $1 before midnight with RSVP, don’t miss it!
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)
Last month we hit up Miami for yetanother smash Fool’s Gold Winter Music Conference takeover!
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.
