Tonight, Bootie is proud to present one of Brazil's best bootleggers, DJ Faroff
, who over the past year has turned into one of Bootie's favorite mashup artists. At 11 PM, Bootie's house band Smash-Up Derby
returns to the stage with a set of live rock 'n' roll mashups. In the upstairs room, it's Electro-Bootie, our monthly "club-within-a-club" specializing in electro remixes and bootlegs -- this month will feature one of Hype Machine's favorite remixers, Dave Wrangler
, from Houston, Texas. And for the Midnight Mashup Show, Dean Disaster
returns to the Bootie stage for a twisted version of "Rocket Man."
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. Live Bootie mashup band Smash-Up Derby always rocks the house 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.
