For the first Bootie party of 2011 at DNA Lounge, we are proud to feature - from the international party Bearracuda - DJ Boyshapedbox
, whose crowd-pleasing mashup sets have rocked the upstairs room many times over. At 11 PM, Bootie's live house band, Smash-Up Derby
takes the stage, while for the Midnight Mashup Show, thrills and chills await as Bootie presents its first-ever knife-throwing show! Alexis Von Fierce
lip-syncs while R.L. the Blademaster hurls deadly knives at her! And finally, the Squrrrl DJs are building a nest in the upstairs room, hosted by Danyol. With DJs Ben Holder, Bill Dupp and Papa Tony, expect a nutty night of house, electro, and breaks, with plenty of funk in-between.
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!
