The Hood Internet: December 27th (SAT) @ Mezzanine // BUY TICKETS

Chi-town mashup giants Aaron Brink and Steve Reidell, aka The Hood Internet, bring their legendary remixes to the Mezzanine this Saturday with support from MPHD, Sad Andy and Nanosaur. Former bandmates-turned-producers inspired by the innovative stylings of Girl Talk and Them Jeans, Aaron Brink and Steve Reidell met in college and self-released their debut tracks as The Hood Internet on their self-titled music blog, starting in 2007. Gaining near immediate traction, New York picked up on their Midwest mixtapes and helped further promote the duo’s unique blend of indie-rock and hip-hop samples into the mainstream, ranking on media year-end “Best of” and Top 10 lists nationwide. Beyond dominating the first decade of the 2000’s mashup game, The Hood Internet also landed corporate sponsorship from the prolific N.Y. streetwear brand Mishka and released a studio album on the Decon Label in 2012. A guaranteed dance party, setting off the evening with a Hosted Russian Standard Vodka Bar from 9-10 p.m., this night will be a perfect warm-up for NYE festivities and one surely not to miss.

Lead singer of Florida-based punk outfit Against Me! and revolutionary crusader in the movement for transgender equality, Laura Jane Grace brings her limited date, solo tour to the stage of Slim’s in SF this Sunday night. Successfully carving her out her place in punk history formerly as Tom Gabel, the frontman and founder of Against Me! stunned the music world with her openly publicized gender transition and campaign for awareness, detailing her journey throughout. Against Me! delivered one of the most highly anticipated and critically acclaimed punk albums of the past decade this year with Transgender Dysphoria Blues, and Grace also has released a solo album of her own work as well. Sharing her story on the pages of several magazines and media publications, Grace recently debuted an original documentary series on AOL, has been honored with several LGBT awards and accolades and is currently penning the finishing points on a highly anticipated memoir to be released within the next year. This Sunday night will be one of only three dates on her solo tour and promises the presence of several special guests amongst other surprises. A once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to catch this amazing performer in such an intimate setting, you won’t want to pass up this show. Enter below for a chance at tix.
