Windy City mashup wizards the Hood Internet will be in town for a heavily sponsored event. This show is being billed as a party, not a concert, and for good reason. The duo specializes in mixing hip-hop and '80s music with modern indie rock — the resulting sound is a clusterfuck of ever-changing, highly danceable tunes. The Hood Internet's contemporaries and co-conspirators are up-and-coming Chicago acts Flosstradamus and Kid Sister, so expect clips from these acts featured among samples ranging from Beach House to Drake to the Black Lips to Jamie Foxx to Deerhunter to Gucci Mane to Grizzly Bear.

Pregame: Hit the Hood Internet's website and download the free "mixtapes" to listen to while you're dressing and dancing in front of your mirror.
