Tonight, Bootie is proud to present punk legends Howie Pyro and Jells Mayhem, a.k.a. The Illuminoids
. This LA-based mashup production duo specializes in taking punk, electro, and indie songs and putting them in a sonic blender, producing tracks that veer sharply away from the typical pop and rap mashups of other DJs. Guest performer Anna Conda
will be joining them for a special midnight mashup show. And in the upstairs room, it's the return of the "New Blood Lounge," where we present DJs sets from fresh Bootie talent Big Dolla
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 Dada
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.
