Tonight, Chicago good-time master the Hood Internet will be at the Gramophone. Tickets are $15 at the door and the show starts at 10 p.m. Do some weird shots beforehand.
Last time the duo came to town, our own Jaime Lees had this to say:
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.
To win: Propose an alternate to pumpkin for flavor of the fall. Because it's almost October, and because of this and because it's fucking Friday and we do what we want.
