Tonight, Bootie's own Party Ben
will be dropping a special live video mashup set! Having recently entered the world of "VJing," Party Ben has been creating exclusive videos to accompany his mashups and remixes, and then mixing them live. He recently opened for Peanut Butter Wolf and Mike Relm as part of a San Francisco Film Society video-DJ event. In the upstairs room, it's our monthly "club-within-a-club," Electro-Bootie, showcasing electro remixes, bootlegs, and covers, with guest DJ Matt Hite
. And for the midnight mashup show, Pollo Del Mar
makes her solo Bootie debut!
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.
