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!

Trizzy Does Europe

Posted on Jun 12th, 2008 by A-Trak

Time for one of my long-winded tour novelas. I recently wrapped up a European tour that spanned the whole month of May, one which I arbitrarily named the Upper Crust Tour at the last minute, in honor of that beloved chain of sandwich shops found in almost all train stations. After doing a whole bunch of tours with other people — the Fool’s Gold fam, Mehdi, Kanye, etc — I felt like going off to clubland (Europe) and back to raw DJing practically every night for 4 weeks. Of course I wasn’t literally by myself the whole month. In most cities I was sharing bills with friends from either continent. But it did feel like a pilgrimage to the land of the DJ, and on off-days I would often link up with other producers and work on music. I loved it. I started a Flickr page towards the beginning of my trip so you can catch my full set of pics here. Let’s dive into it. Read More

Kid Sis vs Central Park

Posted on Jun 11th, 2008 by Mr Goldbar

Save the date! This Saturday (6/14) is the first of two supersized Fool’s Gold events at Central Park’s SummerStage. Kid Sister will be performing alongside Vampire Weekend, Born Ruffians, and master of ceremonies Andrew WK (?!?!?) all for a suggested donation of five bucks. Full info here. While you have your calendar out, be sure to circle Sunday, July 20th for the very fun (and very free) “Mad Fools” extravaganza, featuring Santogold, Diplo, A-Trak and Kid Cudi. Doin it at the park, doin it after dark, oh yeah!
