We may be a few years past the point where crunk and hyphy are the hot-trend hip hop subgenres, but First Ave's recurring "Get Cryphy!" night isn't just a matter of trying to find new life in a couple aging styles by portmanteauing them together. Jimmy2Times, Plain Ole Bill, DJ Fundo and Last Word are the deck-annihilating crew behind some of the most get-stupid dance nights in the Twin Cities over the last several years, and their first-Friday takeovers of the Record Room cross almost every line you can think of when it comes to mashing up new and classic hits from across the dance, R&B and hip hop spectrum. With their mix of genre-tweaking beat selection and scratch-battle virtuosity, you're guaranteed a to hear old, recent and freshly-minted favorites in new and outlandish ways. 18+
First Friday of every month, 10 p.m. Starts: July 6. Continues through Jan. 7, 2012
