Hard LA July 19th

Posted on Jun 20th, 2008 by Mr Goldbar

We’ve been remiss in not shouting out the Hard LA festival, which pops off in a matter of weeks (July 19th!) at the Shrine Expo Center in LA. If you didn’t see the giant airplane ad flying over Coachella, or watched the festival’s Truckasaurus-worthy TV commercial, know this: it’s gonna be a MAJOR RAGER featuring N.E.R.D., MSTRKRFT, Spank Rock, and FG’s own Kid Sister, A-Trak, and LA Riots, along with Steve Aoki, Kill The Noise, Bloody Beetroots and a bunch of other fine folks. Get your advance tickets now. And stay hydrated!

Sammy Bananas has two more dates left on his epic Summer Of Sammy trek, and promises a full tour diary as soon as he’s done, complete with tales of debauchery and Black Eyed Pea encounters (dude is a Kid Cudi fan, apparently!). Meanwhile, you can check Sammy in Chicago tonight (6.19) at Debonair Social Club and in Milwuakee on Saturday (6.21) at MOCT, and download the Summer Of Sammy mixtape if you haven’t already bowed down to it’s grandeur. “Rhythm Of The Night,” people!

Kid Cudi “Day ‘N’ Nite” Remix f. Pitbull

Posted on Jun 17th, 2008 by Mr Goldbar

This has been floating around for a hot second, and while we were waiting to get a better quality mp3 of this to share with y’all, we can wait no longer. The story is that Mr 305 heard “Day ‘N’ Nite,” got super into it (“I love this record, dog…”) and decided to throw a freestyle of his own at the beginning. Toma! Download it here (right-click and save-as).

Also: congrats to Ursula Mann and Ashley Jordan, who won tickets to tonight’s Kid Cudi show @ Knitting Factory in NYC. Even if you didn’t snag the freebies, come through anyway, it’s gonna be a fun one. (Now with open bar 9-10, says the Knit!)
