The Hood Internet

Friday, June 9

Everyone loves a good remix or mash-up every now and then, right? If you haven’t heard the Hood Internet’s mash-up of The XX’s “Intro” and DMX’s “X Gon’ Give It To Ya,” you’re missing out on a seriously weird but strangely cohesive mashup. For a track typically used for action movies (Cradle To The Grave, Deadpool) it gives DMX’s lyrics a strange sort of depth and emotional edge. Since 2007, Aaron Brink (ABX) and Steve Reidell (STV SLV) have been releasing their mashups of popular indie rock and hip-hop songs through their website thehoodinternet.com, which over the years has slowly grown in popularity thanks to other mash-up artists like Girl Talk. Also on tour with the duo is rapper Showyousuck who, with Brink and Reidell, have an alternative hip hop group called Air Credits and have been slowly building a name for themselves in the underground rap community. $15, 8pm, Paper Tiger, 2410 N. St. Mary’s St., papertigersatx.com — CC
