Fool's Gold Debuts Their September Calendar of Events
Iconic independent Brooklyn label Fool's Gold debuts their full September calendar of events today. After hosting hugely successful pop-ups by the likes of Desus & Mero, Comethazine, Brujas and ItsTheReal in recent months, Fool's Gold is doubling down on programming at 147 Grand St. this month.
From Stretch Armstrong signing his book of NYC club flyers to Chromeo throwing down DJ sets and synthesizer workshops, every weekend will feature special in-store events at the Fool's Gold Headquarters. This Saturday September 15, the Fool's Gold Artist Series will feature original sketches, rare apparel and more from illustrator Chris M. Wilson, a mainstay in the city's hardcore and underground hip-hop scenes responsible for countless Fool's Gold graphics over the past several years.
Fool's Gold has long been a breeding ground for rising talent, and an IRL connector for scenes and generations. The orbit of talented creatives hovering around the company (founded by DJs A-Trak and Nick Catchdubs) is without peer, from performers at the label's Day Off festival to the international family of artists contributing to Fool's Gold apparel, sleeve artwork, lookbooks and music videos. Since opening their brick-and-mortar store in the heart of Williamsburg last year, the Fool's Gold headquarters has doubled as a space to support these friends' brands, music and art.
Stay tuned for more Fool's Gold in-store programming throughout October and the rest of Fall 2018, including a photo show by A$AP Rocky approved shooter Aidan Cullen, a takeover by cult clothing and motorcycle brand Thumpers NYC, and a DJ workshop by A-Trak himself.
