March madness! Like we always do at this time, Team FG is going to be bumrushing a music festival near you with some unforgettable parties featuring the whole fam.
First up, our annual SXSW bash, back at Austin’s Palm Door (remember this one?) on Friday, March 18th with A-Trak, Donnis, Cubic Zirconia, Danny Brown, The Suzan, AraabMuzik, Kingdom, Telephoned, Party Supplies and Nick Catchdubs on the decks between acts all night. It’s an official festival showcase, which means SXSW badges / wristbands get in free all night. (There will be some limited tix for sale at the door.)
The following weekend, we head down to Miami to once again tear the roof off our downtown home Grand Central, rolling with an insane roster of superfriends including A-Trak, Kenny Dope, Riva Starr, Just Blaze, Treasure Fingers, Congorock, LA Riots, Jokers Of The Scene, Nacho Lovers, Kingdom, Nick Catchdubs, Sammy Bananas and…special surprise guests? Stay tuned! It’s free with RSVP.
You know we have some bonus beat surprises up our sleeves for both weekends too. As always, keep checking this here site for the latest announcements and updates. Read More
Switchboard is the partytime creation of Telephoned, taking the spirt of anything-goes genre flippery that colors Telephoned’s music and using it to fuel an unexpected NYC night out with friends and collaborators.
Our friends at Downtown are gearing up to celebrate their five-year anniversary. One night of revelry isn’t going to cut it though, so they’ve whipped up the Downtown Music Festival: Friday, March 4th with our own A-Trak and The Suzan representing, followed by a night at Terminal 5 on Saturday, March 5th featuring folks like Major Lazer, DJ Mehdi and Santigold.
Chromeo are hitting the road with The Suzan and MNDR this month for their “Risky Business” North American trek. Full dates and info after the jump. To get you in the mood, download the Duck Sauce remix of “Hot Mess” (now with extra La Roux) from RCRD LBL.
Check this behind-the-scenes vid of The Suzan being shot for BlackBook’s “The New Regime” issue, out now (they’re picked as “The New Riot Grrrls,” in case you were wondering, alongside all manner of upstart actors, artists, designers, etc).
There’s a iPhone / iPad app that goes along with it, allowing users to play with the kaleidoscope speed, position, angle and more themselves, while the Suzan knock out their xylophone riffs, surf guitar, and tom tom grooves. Check (and share) the video and free app all in one place at foolsgoldrecs.com/thesuzan.

Altered Zones-associated mix hub International Tapes just premiered The Suzan’s “24 Hour Happy” – a personal collection of feel good favorites from the band, ranging from jangly Liquid Liquid and Go! Team jams to Duck Sauce, K-Pop surprises, and even a throwback Pizzicato 5 remix. Download it here and shake away.
