It's a "homecoming show" for resident DJs Adrian & Mysterious D -- aka A Plus D
-- as they return in the afternoon from their month-long European tour. While they no doubt will be jet-lagged, they'll also be ready to rock, with sets inspired from their travels, as they brought Bootie to ten other cities in seven countries. Adriana A also returns to his post as leader of Smash-Up Derby
, as the band hits the stage at 11 PM for a set of live mashups.
For the Midnight Mashup Show, it's the Bootie debut of the performance troupe Counter Culture Collective
. In the upstairs room, from Seattle, it's "Bastards!" featuring DJ Destrukt
. And spinning sets both upstairs and on the main floor will be special guest DJ Jay-R
Launched in 2003 in San Francisco by DJs Adrian & 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 regular parties in several cities on four 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!
