Here’s a backstage pass to a funky show: last night at the Cool Kids / Camp Lo gig at SOB’s, Nice & Smooth dropped in for a guest appearance and our pal Mel D Cole was there to capture Greg Nice proudly sporting a Shake It Down tee. Grab one for yourself at the FG webstore, and check more of Mel’s flicks here.

Last week Fool’s Gold was proud to take part in Converse’s 1st annual “Band Of Ballers” tournament. As player/GM (ha!) I put together a scrappy team including Donnis and soopamanager D Solo, Sammy Bananas, and DJ Jayceeoh. NCAA experience, mustaches, high socks – we had it all. A-Trak suited up like a French Canadian Pat Riley on the sidelines as coach, and we took on the competition with championship swag while Cipha Sounds soundtracked it Miss Info and FG fan Peter Rosenberg did play-by-play. Did I mention there were video girls? Spectacle.
Game 1 was a resounding FG victory against the Mad Decent team, followed by a Game 2 loss to Jim Jones and fam. We still made the semi-finals though, where team FG sweated out a heartbreaker of an overtime loss (the only game to hit sudden death!) to Pac Div. They in turn lost to Jimmy’s team in the finals. Ah well, there’s always the next tourney. We played hard, had fun, and came away with a year’s worth of bragging rights against Diplo. Twitter that!
Check out the recaps from Village Voice, XXL, Dime, Complex, Nah Right and Miss Info’s blog. You can also peep our intern Loren’s exclusive pix from the stands. More links as we get em, Hot 97 video and some select photos after the jump. Read More

GB’s still kickin up dust on the 10,000LB Hamburger Tour, listening to flamenco, drinking cognac, and entering a whale’s vagina (San Diego). He’s probably doing all sorts of crazy shit in your town too, so be sure to send in pics of your own Grateful Bear adventures. We’ll run em every week. Also just FYI: Kid Robot has sold out of ALL wholesale boxes of the bear, so your only bet is to buy at wherever, store you see em, because when they are gone they are ALL GONE.

GB’s been all over the place this past week – posted up at his release party, hitting the airways, and getting busy on the road with A-Trak and friends for the 10,000LB Hamburger Tour. Joshua Lekach even caught him cooling out in the freezer, as pictured above. Send in your own sightings and we’ll post the best ones every week! You can still buy a bear of your own at Kidrobot, Turntable Lab and wherever fine ursine products are sold.

Last Thursday’s “Best Of The Beast” opening was the place to be, as a couple hundred of our best friends and fam came out for Fool’s Gold art director Dust La Rock’s debut solo show. Queen Majesty, Vin Sol, Nick Catchdubs and Dave1 spun the tunes, Red Stripe and Vitamin Water provided refreshments, Fader debuted their new issue, Worship Worthy made sure everything ran smoothly and a literal who’s who of NYC’s creative community brought infinite good vibes to celebrate one of their own.
Check out these full photo galleries from Ian Meyer, Nicky Digital, Driven By Boredom (who also shot the event for Village Voice, Village Slum (a bunch more on Flickr too), as well as some recaps at Street Level, Hypebeast, RCRD LBL and Herald De Paris. Dust, Trizzy and Catch filmed a MTV News interview which should be up shortly, and in the meantime you can check some video of the show from Bongoboy along with A-Trak’s Flipcam Q&As with Haze and Sammy Bananas (along with some of our photo gallery favorites) after the jump.
