This past weekend the FG fam loaded up our hovercraft and sped down to Norfolk, VA for the opening of Dust La Rock’s “Best Of The Beast” show at Commonwealth’s flagship store. Dust’s pieces looked as stunning as the tattooed mamis at the party, Nick Catchdubs provided nuff tunes (including hidden Fam-Lay gems and a gang of FG exclusives that Virginia was first to ever hear live), and we were greeted by a team of Hampton Roads’ finest, including Chad Hugo of Neptunes / N*E*R*D fame. Check out pics from the night from Commonwealth and Flash You’re Famous – we’ll be linking up more as we get them, though unfortunately no pics exist of the donk exhibition outside 7-11 later that night, or the epic Bojangles meal the following morning.
The opening also marked the debut of Commonwealth’s limited edition Best Of The Beast tee, a Hell’s Satans-worthy garment that you can purchase online while they last. More C’mon x FG collabs coming soon, as well as further graphic awesomeness from the man, the mystery, The Duster.
The calendar section coming up on our new website is gonna be crayjeeee, but until then the best place to keep up with tour dates for the whole Fool’s Gold family is our MySpace and Twitter, which we keep updated daily with the comings (ayo!) and goings of the FG fam. That said – we can’t neglect the regular ol’ blog neither!
Here’s a bunch of flyers for gigs coming up this weekend, including DJ Gant-Man and Jokers Of The Scene rocking separate parties in Chicago tonight (JOTS also hit SD on Saturday), LA Riots and Nick Catchdubs in NYC Friday along with Sammy Bananas with Switch in LA, Treasure Fingers in Vancouver and Andrew Ross of Nacho Lovers in Toronto that same night (he’s reunited with the other Nacho in Calgary Saturday), and of course the ‘Burger trio who stay hitting towns near you on the DAILY (including SF tonight with Trackademicks). Support real live DJs! Read More
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 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.
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!
This Saturday (6.13) bust out the sunscreen and prep your guts for BBQ overload at two fun, all-ages outdoor events in BK. First up is Crest Fest on Metropolitan Ave in W’burg, where the FG office neighbors have banded together for an art show and free public concert. Check Nick Catchdubs, DJ Lindsey, Jamal Ali and more – then head over to BKLYN Yard in Park Slope for a VERY special, all-afternoon edition of Flashing Lights, featuring Treasure Fingers, Catch + Ayres, Dre Skull, Roctakon, Cubic Zirconia and more rocking from 3-9pm. Full size flyers after the jump. Read More
Welcome to the inaugural Rappin Ass Thursdays (mega pause!)
I wanted to post up some more music on the blog that wasn’t directly FG related and this seemed like the best way to start. Every Thursday I’m gonna compile my favorite new downloads of the week just in time for you to grab before the weekend. This first one has tracks from GLC & Christian Rich, Wale, Donny Goines f. Che Grand & Izza Kizza, and DJ Soul’s Big L tribute mix. Lesssgoooooooooooo!!! Read More
