Direct from France, Bootie is proud to present a rare U.S. appearance by famed French mashup team Loo & Placido. Having toured all over Europe, these "Electronic Popstar Killers" have garnered a well-earned reputation for their sets, where the best of today's and yesterday's music is blended in a sort of 'Back to the Future' avalanche mix, resulting in a tasty electro/rock/hiphop mixture. And by adding a few machines and keyboard, as well as Placido's voice, the duo create even more interactivity with the audience, giving a live feeling to their show missing from most typical DJ sets.

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!
