Treasure Fingers & A-Trak
Jack Beats (from the UK), Treasure Fingers, Theophilus London, and A-Trak performed at Webster Hall in NYC on Friday night (7/31). It was the NYC stop on the "10,000LB Hamburger Tour", and in their own words, was "an extra-special one [because it was] basically the Fool's Gold 'hometown' show". Treasure Fingers joined the Fool's Gold team in January 2008. A-Trak is co-founder of the label (along with Nick Catchdubs).
Despite the crazy rain earlier in the evening, Webster Hall was packed by midnight, with a line winding around the corner on eleventh street and the crowd inside was fully charged. Sara also says that, "all of the acts presented masterful production skills and classy, energetic sets, Theophilus London had a good number of fans leaning against the barricade - he jumped down from the stage at one point to embrace some lady adorers, and A-Trak took to the stage with grace and grandeur, surrounded by a backdrop of bursting neon lights."
Theophilus London also played Webster Hall one night eariler, as did A-Trak's buddy Kanye West.
