Bootie celebrates Michael Jackson's birthday with an evening filled with mashup tributes to the late, great "King of Pop." DJ Freddy, King of Pants
comes down from Bootie Seattle to join DJ Tripp
on the decks, as they all sprinkle in MJ mashups throughout the night. Live on stage at 11 PM, Bootie's 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!
Local faux queen Holy McGrail
takes to the stage for a special "Free Willy"-inspired Michael Jackson Midnight Mashup Show, while upstairs in Above DNA, MOM DJs (Motown On Monday) Gordo Cabeza and Timoteo Gigante bring their mix of Motown, soul, funk, and disco, with a focus on original remixes and edits of timeless songs. John!John!
seizes control of the Lounge to throw a kooky party where anything can happen, and finally, there will be free "Bootie Mashes Michael Jackson" CDs for the first 100 people through the door!
Launched in 2003 by San Francisco DJ duo A Plus D, Bootie was the first club night dedicated solely to the then-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 eight years, Bootie celebrates pop culture both past and present, keeping your brain guessing and body dancing with creative song combinations. Mixing and matching every musical genre, era, and style into one big dance party, it's a place where everyone is welcome. And with free mashup CDs given away like candy, Bootie provides the soundtrack for the A.D.D. generation.
