Fool’s Gold CMJ Wrapup

Posted on Oct 28th, 2008 by Nick Catchdubs

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:

- Driven By Boredom photos (whole show / Kid Sis / Voice selects)
- Last Night’s Party photos
- Behind-the-scenes glamour shots (and Q&As) from Metromix
- Prefix Mag photos (more on Flickr)
- End-of-night foolishness captured by Nicky Digital
- NY Times story on CMJ merch w/ Kid Sis tee

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.

You might have noticed Pete Tong dropping Laidback Luke & A-Trak’s “Shake It Down” on his show last month, and now on his latest show he’s gone and made it an Essential New Tune! Dropped the LBL remix of Treasure Fingers’ “Cross The Dancefloor” in the set as well.
