So Coachella sold out before you could get tickets to the big festival? Then come out for the next best thing: Bootchella! Resident DJs Mykill
, and Dada
-- along with Bootie's very own live mashup rock band, Smash-Up Derby
-- will be playing music from Coachella artists past and present all night! But there's one big twist -- they'll all be mashed up! Sure, it might not be the "real" Coachella ... but it's 3000% cheaper, and you won't get sunburned!
For the Midnight Mashup Show, we have one of SF's favorite drag queens, Monistat
, while upstairs, Glitterazzi returns to the Lounge with Meikee Magnetic
and Mixtress Shizaam
playing their explosive mix of electro, mashups, and house. And finally, in the Dazzle Room, it's the return of Turbo Drive, as DJs Devon
, Sparkle, Mr. Smith
and Mykill spin retrowave, dreamwave, and neo-electro-pop. Imagine the sounds of Miami Vice meets Blade Runner -- modern artists re-imagining "the future as the past saw it."
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.
