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

The NYC date of the 10,000LB Hamburger Tour is an extra-special one. It’s basically the Fool’s Gold “hometown” show, buoyed by all the extra energy of A-Trak, Treasure Fingers, and Theophilus London rocking out for their best friends and neighbors (plus the added bonus of our UK pals Jack Beats flying over to play, using the show to kick off a North American tour of their own), general TGIF craziness, 19+ at the door… IT’S KIND OF LIKE A BIG DEAL.
So with all that in mind, we’re psyched to give you a number of chances to get into the show for free ninety nine. You can win tix from RCRD LBL and Green Shoelace, and RSVP for $1 entry (and $1 drinks) before midnight here. And hey, if you just wanna buy regular tickets, that’s cool too.

As previously mentioned, a bunch of the Fool’s Gold fam will be in Chicago for Lollapalooza in a matter of days. We’re happy to note that Nick Catchdubs will be joining A-Trak, LA Riots, Kid Cudi and more bros + associates on the DJ stage, as well as performing at the August 7th Imeem afterparty at Sonotheque along with Trizzy and Treasure Fingers. The flyer is above, and it’s FREE with RSVP – don’t slack!

The calendar section coming up on our new website is gonna be crayjeeee, but until then the best place to keep up with tour dates for the whole Fool’s Gold family is our MySpace and Twitter, which we keep updated daily with the comings (ayo!) and goings of the FG fam. That said – we can’t neglect the regular ol’ blog neither!
