Welcome home Bootie's founders and resident DJs A Plus D
, as the duo make their triumphant return to the Bootie Mashup mothership after being gone for over five weeks during their (Mostly) Europe Tour. They're only in town together this one week in May, before jetting off to do Bootie in New York City and Rio de Janeiro, so don't miss it! DJ Dada
opens the night, and at 11 PM, Smash-Up Derby
takes the stage with the return of lead singer Adriana A at the helm, for a live mashup rock set. And for the Midnight Mashup Show, Peach Chanté makes her long-awaited return to the Bootie stage!
Upstairs in the Lounge, Hard Candy brings DJs Starr
and Cherie spinning the best in electro, progressive, house & indie. In the Dazzle Room, longtime crowd favorite Sample This! gets a new name and makeover, as Myster C and Mr. Washington present Ya Mamma's Basement, spinning R&B and hip-hop to get you bumpin' and grindin' on the dance floor. And in the Green Room, it's the return of Boo-Tea, as Shana and Devon pour you free hot cups of amazing teas to keep your energy going!
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.
