From Santa Cruz, Bootie is proud to present the return of DJ Tripp
, spinning a special all-video mashup set -- hey, doesn't that now make him a "VJ?" House band Smash-Up Derby
will even be doing one of Tripp's mashups live! Upstairs, The Face Melters -- a.k.a. Fox and Kool Karlo
-- will take over the lounge, spinning a beatmashed set of bootlegs and electro remixes. And for the Midnight Mashup Show, Xavier Toscano
makes his Bootie debut by singing a Justin Timberlake mashup... live!
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!
