The Hood Internet in concert with with Booty Fade and The Outfit, TX
A mash-up crew who came to fame thanks to their genre-jumping mixes, The Hood Internet were formed in Chicago after members Aaron Brink (ABX) and Steve Reidell (STV SLV) both moved to the city with fresh college diplomas. They met in the indie band May or May Not, but after hearing mash-up DJs like Girl Talk and Them Jeans, they headed straight for the laptop and began combining Lil Wayne with Modest Mouse, Swizz Beatz with Deerhoof, and R. Kelly with Jens Lekman. Initial results were uploaded to the Hood Internet blog in 2007 and it didn’t take long for the music to explode.
They'll be joined by Booty Fade and The Outfit, TX as opening acts.
