Live on stage at 11 PM, it's the return of the "Grandfathers of the Mashup" -- The Evolution Control Committee
. These groundbreaking, copyright-infringing pioneers will be presenting "The Wheel of Mashup," where you, the audience, spin the outer wheel to determine the music and the inner wheel to choose the vocals -- the two get mashed together on the spot! The ECC will also bring their latest mashing invention, the VidiMasher 3000, a giant video screen hacked from two Nintendo Wii controllers that allow TradeMark G to instantaneously mix and mash over 800 samples right before your eyes... literally! For the Midnight Mashup Show, Tim Barsky
from The Vowel Movement will be doing a live beatboxing mashup. Residents A+D and Dada
rock the main floor, and in the upstairs lounge, guest DJs Malderor
and Mad Murdock
keep the mashups pumping.
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 three 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.
