In the Lounge, it's SQURRRL, as DJs Joe Pickett & Ben Holder -- along with host Tamale Ringwald -- fill their dark forest with a nutty night of house, electro, and breaks, with plenty of funk in-between. And finally, Death Guild takes over the Dazzle Room, carving out a dark chapel filled with goth, industrial and synthpop with DJs Decay
, Joe Radio
, and Melting Girl

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.
