It's Mysterious D
's B-day, and tonight, we're gonna party like it's HER birthday! Bootie's favorite resident DJ celebrates with a special showcase set at midnight, followed by a late night set by guest DJ Tripp
. Bootie's house band Smash-Up Derby
hits the stage at 11 PM, and for the Midnight Mashup Show, Brooklyn electro-hipster duo Purple Crush
mash up their own band's music for a little mini-set. In the upstairs room, Brass Tax DJs Joejoe and Dingdong -- from First Fridays at Amnesia -- take over with a dirty combination of breaks, electro, d'n'b, and hip-hop.
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. Keeping your brain guessing and body dancing with creative song combinations, Bootie mixes and matches every conceivable musical genre, era, and style into one big dance party where everyone feels welcome, providing the soundtrack for the A.D.D. generation... and free mashup CDs, given away like candy!
