This past Friday we had our 2nd annual Fool’s Gold holiday jam. Even with a NYC blizzard in full effect all day, the true believers came out to party with the FG fam and our special guests DJ Premier and Cipha Sounds. Kid Sister and Trackademicks cut it up on the dancefloor, Daniel LA Riots and Linus JOTS were spotted with Pepsi-n-Hennessy coctails in hand, Primo dropped “Hold It Now Hit It,” and a festive time was had by all. (Dust swears he saw Macaulay Culkin in the mix but I don’t believe him he needs more people).
Like we always do at this time… it’s the return of the annual Fool’s Gold holiday party!
This year we teamed up with Pepsi Proper to bring you the “Friends & Family Holiday Bash,” featuring the legend DJ Premier and the big dawg pitbull Cipha Sounds, along with tag-team DJ sets from FG’s own Nick Catchdubs and Sammy Bananas and The Brothers Macklovitch. NOT TO BE MISSED! Come through and close out an amazing 2008 with all of us.
The party is completely free with RSVP, and it’s going down this Friday (12.19) at Twelve/21 in NYC aka the old Sound Factory aka Cheetah (“from Club Cheetah, to Club Amnesia, Peanuts in LA, bubblin in Dublin,” yes that one). Full address and info after the jump.
RCRD LBL is giving away tickets to this Tuesday’s (12.9) show at Highline Ballroom, featuring Wale (backed by go-go band UCB), Kid Cudi, Colin Munroe, and Che Grand with DJ sets from Nick Catchdubs, Mark Ronson and surprise guests from Hot 97. Enter to win here, winners will be selected Tuesday AM.
Last month a bunch of the FG fam went out on the road to celebrate the release of our Fool’s Gold Remixed compilation with Scion. And now we finally got all the pics back (save for the Philly date, I blame Andy Reid…) and can share em with you after the jump.
Stay tuned for a limited edition vinyl 12″ of selected tracks from the comp, and look for copies at various Fool’s Gold and Scion events throughout the rest of this year and next. And if you can’t track the CD down, cop the remixes from your favorite digitalretailer. Now onto the recap-ery! Read More
Almost a year after the A-Trak/Kid Sis spectacular, Fool’s Gold returns to the Museum Of Natural History for their latest One Step Beyond party. Bass and lasers underneath the giant planetarium sphere, how can you go wrong? This time it’s FG’s Nick Catchdubs and Ghostly’s Michna rocking out for you all Friday night (11/21). Admission includes a free pass to the museum to party with Ben Stiller whenever you like.
Every month Scion records radio shows at Plan B in NYC, with various guest stars bringing the jams. Then later that night they throw a free party with all of those DJs. For the children! This month’s session features our buddy Sinden alongside Fool’s Gold’s own Fistfight (of Nacho Lovers) and Nick Catchdubs, as well as the big homie DJ Eleven and the regular sized homies Michna and Blu Jemz. Catch this action packed line up for free tonight (11/11) at Plan B @ 339 E. 10th St (right off Ave B by Tompkins Square Park) starting at 10pm.
As we continue on… the Scion/FG Fool’s Gold Remixed tour rolls into Philly tonight with Sammy Bananas, Trackademicks, Nacho Lovers and Treasure Fingers rocking the Barbary, and then finishes up in Baltimore on Wednesday with Sammy, Nick Catchdubs, Trackademicks, and Jokers Of The Scene at Ottobar. Both shows are FREE with RSVP! Get your names in and get more info at www.scion.com/avrelease.
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:
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.
