Look, we know it's Monday.

We know you have to work in the morning and you just walked through today like a zombie because you partied all weekend, but how often do you get a chance to see eight DJ's battle it out and then catch a legendary DJ spin afterwards...for FREE!

Red Bull's Thre3Style competition is hitting The Forum tonight and letting local DJ's mix a 15-minute set with three different genres in front of the crowd and panel of judges THEN letting guest judge DJ Jazzy Jeff (who was just here for CIAA weekend) rock after we've decided the winner.

Representing Charlotte tonight will be DJ Soden, Frenxy, DJ R Wonz, DJ A-Huf, Ciprian, Merlin, SPCLGST & DJ Forge.

The Red Bull Thre3Style has traveled all over the country and after Charlotte will hit Nashville tomorrow night, then Austin for SXSW.

Doors open at 8 p.m.; things get started at 9 p.m., admission is free and you must be 18+
