So Coachella sold out before you could get tickets to the big festival? Come on out for the next best thing: Bootchella! Bootie will be playing Coachella artists throughout the night, but with one big twist -- of course, they'll all be mashed up! At 11 PM, Bootie's own live mashup rock band, Smash-Up Derby
, will play songs from Coachella bands both past and present. DJ Tyme
& Nathan Scot
will be also be in the house, celebrating the release of their latest mashup album, with plenty of free CD giveaways -- including a special limited-edition "Bootchella 2012" CD!
For the Midnight Mashup Show, the Cowboy Girlz from Vau de Vire Society will take the stage for a dazzling performance, while in dance tent, er, the upstairs room, DJ Italian Robot
celebrates his birthday, along with guest DJ Mykill
, as the pair throw down electro bootlegs and remixes all night. It might not be the "real" Coachella, but it's 3000 percent cheaper ... and you won't get sunburned!
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.
