We know we're about two years too late with this theme night, but who cares? Crack open a can of PBR, it's Hipster Bootie! Besides, aren't hipsters "retro" yet? Grow a beard, wear glasses and a scarf, and don't forget your ironic t-shirt. Resident DJs Adrian & Mysterious D will be spinning indie and electro (and of course, "ironic" pop) mashups throughout the night, so you can dance disaffectedly and scoff how it's not as good as it used to be! Get your photo taken by Jen & Mike of Calibree Photography

At 11 PM, Bootie's live mashup rock band Smash-Up Derby
gets in on the concept, playing a set of mashups featuring songs by famous indie bands who "sold out." For the Midnight Mashup Show, John!John! & the Bootie Bumps take you to the "Combination Pizza Hut and Taco Bell" (Das Racist vs. The Rapture). And finally, in the upstairs room, award-winning DJ Richie Panic
and Danny Key&Kite present Wanted, the Castro's premiere electronic dance party, which happens every Monday night at Q Bar with the hottest remixes from all genres.
Launched in 2003 in San Francisco by A Plus D

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!
