Bootie celebrates six years of mashing it up, with a party so big, it can't be contained in one night! It's the Bootie 6-Year Anniversary Weekender! Saturday continues the party with "Pirate Night," as resident DJs Adrian, Mysterious D, and Dada
spin the best pirated mashups from the past year. At 11 PM, live Bootie house band Smash-Up Derby
plays a special pirate-themed "Greatest Hits" set. And at midnight, Bootie LA's resident 10-person dance crew R.A.I.D.
(Random Acts of Irreverent Dance) will take the stage in their trademark gold suits, with another set of choreographed mashup dance numbers.
In the upstairs room, it's the return of Illumination Radio, featuring electro indie remixes and mashups from Jells Mayhem
of The Illuminoids (who will also be doing a late-night main floor set) along with guest DJ Earworm
. There will also be surprise drag queen performances by Anna Conda
and Cookie Dough
, as well as pirate go-go dancers presented by The Indra
. And of course, there are free 20-track Bootie Anniversary CDs for the first 500 people through the door!
Launched in 2003 in San Francisco by DJs Adrian & The Mysterious D, 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 eight 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!
Bootie's DJs and house band Smash-Up Derby, as well as guest mashup DJs from around the world, keep your brain guessing and body dancing with creative song combinations, celebrating -- and satirizing -- the many different forms of music. Bootie also presents the infamous Midnight Mashup Show, featuring local drag and burlesque performers. Bootie showcases the best mashup productions from around the globe... because one song at a time just isn't enough!
