Italy's electro-mashup masters DJs From Mars couldn't get their U.S. visas in time, so instead, Bootie's resident DJs A Plus D
will be doing the next best thing: spinning a special one-hour tribute set at midnight, playing only DJs From Mars tracks! (Don't worry, we are planning to reschedule them in the fall.)
At 11 PM, after a month-long break, Bootie's house band Smash-Up Derby
hits the stage with a special homecoming set for singer Mimi Lee Ferrari, who, after recovering from throat complications, returns to the band for the first time in three months. Come on out to welcome her back!
For the Midnight Mashup Show, making her Bootie debut will be Mona G. Hawd
, performing a mashup of Madonna vs. The Who. And in the upstairs room, it's Damn Gina! The Ambassador's infamous Tuesday night party takes over, with DJ Fox
and Kool Karlo
spinning super fun dance music to get your groove on!
Launched in 2003 in San Francisco by A Plus D -- aka DJs Adrian & Mysterious D - Bootie was the first club night 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!
