"Last night at BK Bowl. Stuff of legends. Kanye x DipSet x GZA x Donnis x CyHi x The Suzan x Treasure Fingers x Kindgom. FOOOOOL'S GOOOOOLD!" - Chromeo

Fool's Gold

"It was a rumor the whole night-- first a whisper, then a text, then a Tweet, then a blog post. It seemed too improbable to be true. Kanye West performing at Williamsburg's 600-capacity Brooklyn Bowl?! No way. But then, around 2 a.m., the man showed up on Pitchfork's #Offline Festival stage with his Horus chain and pyramid ring to celebrate the third anniversary of his friend and collaborator A-Trak's Fool's Gold imprint. He would go onto perform an all-killer five-song set of nothing but 2010 Internet smashes: "So Appalled", "Monster", "Devil in a New Dress", "Power", and "Runaway".

While Kanye was naturally the star of the evening, he was not the only surprise. GZA rolled through after Kanye's set to lead a "Shimmy Shimmy Ya" sing-a-long and do "Liquid Swords" and Chromeo (led by singer Dave 1, who is also A-Trak's brother) stopped by deep in the night. Other performers for the anniversary blowout included G.O.O.D. Music up-and-comer CyHi Da Prynce, Japanese rockers the Suzan, MPC freak araabMUZIK, and Atlanta DJ and producer Treasure Fingers."

Kanye? AND Chromeo? Nice, wish I'd caught it. I love GZA too, but his drunken performance (if you can call it that) on Thursday at Le Poisson Rouge was the worst show I've ever seen.

honestly, i'd rather just party to ATrak spinning than Kanye doing anything. glad it was a fun for everyone though

@12:32 - What the fuck is a "blipster" and what has one ever done to you...besides steal your girl right from under you. Oh that's right...you've never had a girl.
