Ooh la la! It's the Bootie French Revolution! Bootie's sister mashup party in France takes over the DNA Lounge -- it's Bootie Paris in San Francisco! Bootie Paris creator DJ ComaR
returns for a special on-stage DJ set. In the upstairs room, Bootie Paris resident DJs Reno
will be spinning, as well as French rapper Grandpamini
, who will also be performing the midnight mashup show and doing a special guest rap -- in French -- with live Bootie house band Smash-Up Derby
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 six 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.
