As the "go-to" video remixer for the international mashup scene, Australia's VJ Brewski
has created well-crafted mashup videos for some of the world's best bootleggers. And as Bootie Australia's resident DJ, he certainly knows the big Bootie hits, which he'll be video-mixing into his showcase "Video Vegemite" mashup video show, put together especially for his debut U.S. tour.
In the upstairs room, Bootie welcomes another kind of Booty -- queer scene-makers and nightlife impresarios Juanita More
! and Joshua J
bring their infamous Castro party, Booty Call Wednesdays, to Saturday night in SoMa! They'll even have a special Pirate Bootie backdrop for pictures, so you can try your hand at modeling for photographer Moreboy Isaac. On the main floor, house band Smash-Up Derby
hits the stage at 11 PM, and for the Midnight Mashup Show, drag fashionista Mss Vee
makes her Bootie debut!
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!
