To celebrate Bootie's Fifth Anniversary, Adrian & the Mysterious D present "Revenge Of The A+D Show," a sequel to last year's epic multimedia mashup extravaganza, which features their own mashups in a stage show combining mashup videos, live performances, go-go dancers, an audience sing-along, and even a live Guitar Hero mashup duel. The performers in the show are a veritable "who's who" from the SF underground, and also includes numbers from two dance troupes, SF Boylesque and Funk4Soul.
At 11PM, Bootie house band Smash-Up Derby
presents "Smells Like Mashups 101: A Bastard Pop History Lesson," as the band traces the chronology of the scene's most landmark tracks, from 2002's seminal "A Stroke of Genie-us" to the multiple mashed-up versions of "Smells Like Teen Spirit". Also spinning will be DJs Party Ben
, and Dada
, and the upstairs "Covers Lounge" will feature cover songs all night, with DJs Earworm
and Throat Yogurt
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.
