Bootie Mashup pays mashup tribute to departed diva Whitney Houston, as resident DJs A Plus D
return from throwing Bootie parties in Shanghai and Hong Kong (and South By Southwest) to spin Whitney mashups on the main floor throughout the night.
At 11 PM, Bootie's own house band Smash-Up Derby
takes the stage to play a set of live rock mashups... including a Whitney Houston song or two! For the Midnight Mashup Shows, two of San Francisco's most divalicious drag queens -- Miss Rahni
and Gillette TheBestAManCanGet
-- pay tribute with a pair of Whitney numbers.
And in the upstairs room, John!John!
and Haute Mess present Romper Room, an absurd, one-of-a-kind nightlife antidote, playing weird diamond-in-the-rough gems from the past and future!
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.
