Launched in 2003, Bootie was the first club night in the United States dedicated solely to the burgeoning artform of the bootleg mashup -- and is now the biggest mashup event in the world, with monthly parties in seven cities on two continents. Mixing and matching every conceivable musical genre, era, and style into one big dance party where everyone feels welcome, Bootie provides the soundtrack for the A.D.D. generation -- with free mashup CDs given away like candy!
Resident DJs Adrian, the Mysterious D, and Party Ben keep your brain guessing and body dancing with creative song combinations, celebrating -- and satirizing -- the many different forms of music. Guest mashup DJs from around the world are featured, and the infamous midnight mashup show showcases popular local drag and burlesque performers.
Tonight, Bootie welcomes back one of its favorite mashup producers, LA-based DJ Axel
, creator of the acclaimed "Breakin' The Law" mashup album. Also spinning on the main floor are a trio of Northern California's best mashup DJs - San Francisco's very own Matt Hite
, DJ Tripp
from Santa Cruz, and David X
of Sacramento. Together, they'll also be joining guest DJ KidHack
in the upstairs room for Electro-Bootie, our new "club-within-a-club" featuring electro bootlegs, remixes, and covers. Ya-Ya
will star as Madonna in a "Flavor of Love"-inspired midnight mashup show, and Trixxie Carr
(from Smash-Up Derby) hosts.
