Like we always do at this time! Team FG going going back back to Austin this month to eat tacos and move bodies. Catch us at the annual Fool’s Gold showcase, going down Thursday, 3/17 at Vulcan Gas Co, presented by Vibes. It’s free with RSVP at lndrnrs.com!
Fool’s Gold teamed up with Seattle’s Alive & Well for a limited edition capsule celebrating the brand’s four-year anniversary. With shared roots in music and street culture (longtime FG fam Four Color Zack is one of A&W’s founders) and a mutually irreverent take on style, this team-up channels inspiration from Seatown weather, Sir Mix A Lot’s limo, and more into must-have pieces for Spring. Get the tees, hoodies, rain jacket, skate deck and more starting this Saturday (3/5) at store.foolsgoldrecs.com and aliveandwellsea.com, and celebrate with a FG takeover that night at 95 Slide (722 E. Pike Street) featuring music from LNDN DRGS, Nick Catchdubs, Four Color Zack and Sean Cee.
Our FG 8 Year Anniversary party at Club Lust in BK was legendary! DJs, rappers, dancers (oh my)… everyone brought their A-Game to the night show. Peep the recap vid above, and photo galleries from Village Voice, Thump, and Wxllxxm. Our friends Brook Bobbins and Grady Brennan were there snapping too, peep the full photo gallery on the FG Facebook and some selects after the jump. Relive the night in all its jiggling glory (whether you were there or not) with this snazzy tee featuring Josh Freydkis’ nutso flyer art and the 8 Year 8 Ball commemorative hat at store.foolsgoldrecs.com.
