Sick of the crowds on Halloween? Then come to APRILWEEN! Yup, Halloween in April -- a holiday so nice, we're doing it twice! Why wait until October to wear a costume? Dress up to enter our midnight Costume Contest, with hundreds of dollars in cash prizes!
The night will also feature three special guest DJs -- DJ Lobsterdust
from Bootie NYC, Maya Jakobson
from Tel Aviv's A.D.D. party, and DJ K.Ash
from Philadelphia. House band Smash-Up Derby
will take the stage at 11 PM for a special costumed Aprilween set, while for the Midnight Mashup Show, Mutha Chucka
and Miss Nix
will haunt the stage with a spooky performance!
Upstairs in the Lounge, it's the return of SQURRRL, as DJs Papa Tony, Trevor Sigler and Joe Pickett -- along with host Danyol -- present a nutty night of house, electro, and breaks, with plenty of funk in-between. And in the Dazzle Room, Brass Tax takes over with DJs Dingdong, Haute Mess, Joejoe, and Ernie Trevino
bringing their signature delirious sound that continues to tear the roof off at their monthly rager in the Mission!
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.
