Captured Tracks isn’t the only Brooklyn-based record label capitalizing on the extended Labor Day weekend; Brooklyn-based hip-hop and electronic music label Fool’s Gold is setting up camp at Williamsburg Park on Monday for its annual Fool’s Gold Day Off NY festival. Over the course of eight hours, 11 of the label’s most-likely-to-move-a-crowd artists and some yet-to-be-announced “special guests” perform for free (at least for those who register on the label’s website). Headliners Duck Sauce make music as tasty as their namesake, building heavy-hitting post-disco and house beats that leave just enough space for one of them to shout a non sequitur like “Barbra Streisand!” Other artists include wild-haired rapper Danny Brown, A$AP Mob rapper A$AP Ferg, duo Run the Jewels, a DJ set by Unibros, and more.
