The Hood Internet is the DJ/production team of Aaron Brink (aka ABX) and Steve Reidell (aka STV SLV). The Chicago-based duo specializes in creating mash-ups of hip-hop and ear-to-the-ground, uber-hipster indie rock. In addition to its mash-up mixtapes, The Hood Internet also runs an influential music blog of the same name as well as Album Tacos, a blog that juxtaposes famous album covers with pictures of Mexican food--which is actually hilarious.

Trust no one. Suspect everyone. These are words to live by at "Keith & Margo's Ultimate Mystery Dinner Adventure", where the murderer just might be sitting right beside you. While the mystery unfolds, you'll be enjoying a four-course dinner and chatting with your fellow guests. Tell them your real identity, or invent a new one to throw them off track. Want to be a marine biologist? A yoga instructor? The way you play it is up to you. When the first body hits the floor, a detective (played by an improvisational comedian) will lead an interrogation and help you piece together clues -- while keeping things lively with plenty of laughs. When the food is gone and the clues run out, it's time to finger whodunit. Channel your inner Sherlock because the winner goes home with a prize. See the full event description for a menu and more info.

Austin, Texas based singer/songwriter Wayne Hancock began writing country songs at the age of 12. While time spent in the military delayed his musical career, in 1995 he recorded his debut album and his classic country style akin to that of Hank Williams III won him an underground following. Blending honky tonk with Western swing, Hancock calls his style of music "juke joint swing" and has won the acclaim of many respected country musicians, including Williams, who has performed duets with Hancock.

Blackstone Rangers is a Dallas, Texas-based electropop trio that was formed in 2011. Building momentus sonic crescendos by layering glitchy rhythm and synth arrangements, then adding nuanced female vocals on top, the group has managed to make some extremely idiosyncratic music. Though Blackstone Rangers music might be slightly difficult to digest, the band's experimental tendencies have been well received by many high-brow music aficionados in the Texas region.
