Bootie celebrates Michael Jackson's birthday with an evening filled with mashup tributes to the late, great "King of Pop." DJ Tripp
, DJ Tyme
& Nathan Scot
, and DJ Dada
will be sprinkling in MJ mashups throughout the night, while at 11 PM, live Bootie house band Smash-Up Derby
reimagines what it would sound like if Michael had fronted such bands as Nirvana, Guns N' Roses, and the Hives!
For the Midnight Mashup Show, the Bay Area Flash Mob
returns to the Bootie stage to present a special tribute to MJ, while in the upstairs room, Myster C
and Mr. Washington keep it classy, spinning sets of classic funk and soul from the '60s to now. And finally, there will be free "Bootie Mashes Michael Jackson" CDs for the first 100 people through the door!
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 seven 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.
