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.
Check out Sammy Bananas’ take on Hollywood Holt’s “Hollywood” over at the iheartcomix blog and Trackademicks’ version of Zion I and The Grouch’s “Lift Me Up” on iTunes. As if that’s not enough, you can find both Sammy and Track reworking different songs from Tittsworth’s debut album on the new T&A Remixes single, available on digital and vinyl at Turntable Lab. Teamwork!
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
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.
I’m sitting in the airport in Phoenix, where due to an unfortunate circumstance (I’m an idiot) I’ve arrived 4 hours early for my flight back to NYC. In the meantime, I figured I would share some of the highlights from my recent trip to the southwest, namely, the Mexican food.
