Ain’t no party like a Fool’s Gold party… we celebrated five years of label-dom in style during CMJ weekend, taking over one of the Converse Rubber Tracks Live nights at Music Hall Of Williamsburg and bringing a bunch of our friends along.

See it all live in the video recap above, and check some great galleries of pics from Gretchen Roibinette at Brooklyn Vegan (our favorites after the jump), Loren Wohl at MTV Hive, Brook Bobbins and Focus Camp. Read More

Rappin Ass Thursdays #41

Posted on Jul 29th, 2010 by Nick Catchdubs

Sometimes I feel bad about skipping (several) Thursdays on this column, but I’ve come to realize that I never meant to write this up religiously every week, for the same reason that I don’t write about every brand new record or leak already cluttering up blogland. This isn’t Julia & Julia with curse words, I’m gonna write about some stuff I feel like talmbout when I feel like talmboutit, not a dutiful batch of pithy remarks and Sendspaces you can set your watch to. So, without further ado… links and stuff after the jump! Read More
