Of the many places you could end your Record Store Day, no where promises the caliber of dance party you can expect at the Firebird for the Hood Internet, presented by Knuckle Rumbler. To win tickets: Tell us in the comments below what your favorite fusion food dish is. Because of the mash-ups, you see.

Read what RFT Music writer Jamie Lees had to say about the show and listen to "Some Creeps (TLC x Holy Ghost x Michael McDonald)" below.

Windy City mash-up 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 specialize in mixing hip-hop and '80s music with modern indie rock ― the resulting sound is a cluster-fuck 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 web site and download the free "mixtapes" to listen to while you're dressing and dancing in front of your mirror.
