What happens when a dance music DJ is pitted against an indie singer/songwriter? Find out at 11 PM, when worlds collide on stage, as Bootie presents DJ Ajax
vs. Ryan Lendt
, performing a live mashup set using two turntables and a microphone... plus a guitar! Entyme
joins the pair for some live video mixing.
For the Midnight Mashup Show, it's the return of performance troupe Counter Culture Collective
, while in the upstairs room, it's a Burning Man fundraiser for the Fandango village bar -- the home of Bootie BRC on the playa -- with DJs Malderor
and Mad Murdock
spinning all night. Residents A+D hold it down on the main floor.
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!
