Treasure Fingers At FIX


Treasure Fingers At FIX
Local DJs EQ and Shortfuze will welcome DJ/producer Treasure Fingers to their Wednesday weekly on May 20 at Fayetteville’s newest nightclub FIX. Treasure Fingers, who kicked off his career in Atlanta, is signed to Fool’s Gold, a label founded by A-Trak. A-Trak is best known as Kanye West’s DJ. Fool’s Gold is also home to new school MTV favorites Kid Cudi and Kid Sister.
Treasure Fingers’ vocoder-encrusted single, “Cross the Dancefloor,” is a midway point between 70s and 80s Italo-disco and new scenester dance-pop — a quintessential party burner. It’s been remixed by countless talent and gotten spins from A-list DJs like Eric Morillo, Annie Mac, Sinden and Kissy Sell Out.
Treasure Fingers will be interviewed and perform live at 8 p.m. on 88.3 FM’s Wheels of Steel before the FIX party. Treasure Fingers will share the FIX bill with Shortfuze, EQ and Bizar. To find FIX, enter through Willy D’s on Dickson Street. Doors at 9 p.m. A 21-and-up party with a $5 cover. RSVP on Facebook via

Smiling Jack’s is Hopping
New patios open in the Dickson Street area almost every year. One of the latest additions is Smiling Jack’s just behind the Dickson Street Book Shop. Some of the acts booked there this week we don’t have the scoop on, but we do know that Jack’s has booked Jeff Kearney, Teddy Sablon, Cletus Got Shot, Very Special Guests and What Army, which will be some of the hottest shows in town this week. All of these local acts in this intimate outdoor space reminds us of the old Working Class Hero days. NAMA nominees Army of Birds will be holding their CD release party there on Saturday, a highly recommended show. We’re also impressed by Teddy Sablon who will be there on Sunday. You may not know this name now, but you will.
