It's Folsom Street Fair Weekend, and to celebrate, Bootie brings together seven West Coast mashup DJs from three different cities -- Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Seattle -- to converge on the decks! Spinning a feature set on the main floor will be DJ Paul V.
from Los Angeles, creator of the infamous, long-running club Dragstrip 66 and resident DJ at Bootie LA. From the Seattle Eagle and FrankenBoot, it's the return of Bootie fave DJ Freddy, King of Pants
. Also spinning upstairs will be LA's DJ Shyboy
and DJ Rawburt
, creator of LA's gay mashup night, Blender. House band Smash-Up Derby will preview their sexed-up, fetish-themed set for the next day's Folsom Street Fair, and for the Midnight Mashup Show, Suppositori Spelling
-- from Truck's Sunday night show, Cocktailgate -- returns to the stage.
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!
