The Hood Internet Grows More Famous, Helps Us Celebrate our Birthday

2007_05_chicagoistbirthday_small.jpgWe couldn't help but notice that The Hood Internet boys just continue to collect accolades tumbling their way. Pitchfork loves them. Very Short List digs 'em. USA Today grooves to them. Heck, even the CBC is singing their praises! The art of the mash-up has been largely on the wane over the past year or so, but these wild upstarts from the mean streets of Chicago have injected brand new life into the art form with their inventive mixes of indie rock anthems with hip-hop floor burners.

So no wonder we're super duper excited that The Hood Internet DJs STV SLV & ABX will be making their live debut at Chicagoist's 3rd Birthday Party at Subterranean on June 7! Joining them on the bill are Milk At Midnight, Sweetish, and We Make Thunder ... and all of this will be lubricated by an awesome drink special from our friends at Goose Island.

If you're 18 or older, we want you there to help us help you celebrate our birthday!
