From Chicago, indie mashup duo ABX and STV SLV - better known as The Hood Internet
- will play special showcase set. This infamous pair have quickly made a name for themselves in the music blogosphere as the go-to indie-hop mashup guys. Marauding the pop, rap and R&B landscapes to mash up Dirty South rap to Canadian indie rock to "French Touch" electro, these Pitchfork-approved mashup boys have played CMJ showcases to South by Southwest, and have enjoyed sets alongside Diplo, The Cool Kids, Z-Trip and The Go! Team. In the upstairs room, DJ Boyshapedbox
brings Bearracuda -- a fun, friendly party for bears, cubs and other wildlife -- to Bootie. Along with that will be Bearracuda's host, Renttecca
, performing the midnight mashup show!
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. Live Bootie mashup band Smash-Up Derby
rocks the house every party at 11 PM. Guest mashup DJs from around the world are featured, and the infamous midnight mashup show showcases popular local drag and burlesque performers.
