Contest: Fool's Gold Tour (ft: A-Trak, Jokers of the Scene, and others), April 11th
Fool's Gold Records exemplifies exactly how fast music is moving in the internet years. Launched in April of last year by super DJ's A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs, the electro/hip hop/mega party label has already boasted super singles and EPs, thrown killer parties at SXSW and others, and has quickly built a reputation that whatever they touch turns to... well, gold.
To (perhaps inadvertently) mark their 1st anniversary and all the successes that have already come, Fool's Gold is hitting the road with a full roster of beat breakers and party makers. The line-up for the Canadian dates, which includes stops in Montreal, Toronto, and Van-City, boasts a very impressive mix of international and homegrown talent: A-Trak himself, UK club DJ Sinden, Brooklyn mixtape master (and one-half of Certified Bananas) Sammy Bananas, as well as Ottawa heroes Jokers of the Scene and Toronto faves Nacho Lovers, and the promise of surprise special guests.
Good guys A.P.E. have hooked BTA up with a pair of passes for the Toronto version of this certified shit show, April 18th at the State Theatre, 69 Bathurst street. To enter, email us with the subject line "Gimme the Gold!" before noon on April 10th.
The Toronto show already has about 7 zillion people confirmed on its facebook page, so if you want to guarantee admittance, I suggest ticket purchasing immediately. They're $15 early-bird, which is such a steal it rivals that time O.J. Dingo held up your local CIBC at gunpoint.
Jokers of the Scene - Juggle It (William Russell remix)
