Here's an opportunity to party tonight (yes, on a Monday night) and hear some great music via a DJ battle. Red Bull Thre3Style is a DJ competition that's traveling from city to city in search of the best DJs, and tonight it's in Charlotte to put the crown on the Queen City's best mix master. The legendary DJ Jazzy Jeff will be in the house (he was also just in town a couple of weeks ago rocking a party during CIAA) to help judge the competition and he'll perform a set after.

There are eight DJs who will be battling it out, some of whom you should recognize from handling the turntable duties at some of Charlotte's biggest parties and most popular nightclubs: DJ Soden, Frenzy, DJ R Wonz, DJ A-Huf, Ciprian, Merlin, SPCLGST, and DJ Forge. Each DJ will have 15 minutes to mix three different genres of music and win over the judges and the crowd. They'll be judged on song selections, creativity, skill, swagger, and audience reaction.

The event is hosted by slam poet and showman Bluz. And Culture Initiative will showcase artwork from local artists John Hairston Jr., Brandon Willett, David Banemanivong, Infamous JeanClaude, Joe Dobson, and Bart Cusick.

Admission is free to the event tonight at The Forum, 300 North College Street. Doors open at 8 p.m.; competition starts at 9 p.m., with ages 18 and older admitted.
