Hailing from New York City, DJ Lobsterdust
has been mashing things up since 2006. As "one of the premiere mashup producers in North America" (Mashuptown.com) as well as a resident DJ at Bootie NYC, he mixes anything, from heavy metal to dub, and everything in-between, with a healthy dose of pop and electronic beats. Fatboy Slim called it "excellently eclectic stuff." If you've ever wondered what the Pixies would sound like with The Pussycat Dolls, or what Bob Marley would sound like as the frontman for Iron Maiden, then you won't want to miss this rare West Coast appearance.
At 11 PM, Bootie's own house band Smash-Up Derby
will take the stage to play a set of live rock mashups, while for the Midnight Mashup Show, Shannon Gaines
from the Vau de Vire Society brings her sword balancing acrobatics to the Bootie stage. And in the upstairs room, the SQURRRL DJs return! With host Danyol and DJs Papa Tony, Bill Dupp, and Trevor Sigler, expect a nutty night of house, electro, and breaks, with plenty of funk in-between.
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. Voted "Best Club Night" for the past six years, Bootie keeps your brain guessing and body dancing with creative song combinations, mixing and matching every musical genre, era, and style into one big dance party. Providing the soundtrack for the A.D.D. generation -- and free mashup CDs given away like candy -- it's a place where everyone is welcome.
