Once again, Bootie Mashup is hosting the biggest Santacon After-Party in San Francisco, as a bunch of drunks in cheap Santa suits invade the party! Anyone dressed in a Santa suit or holiday-themed costume gets in for free (but only if they're fully-dressed and not too wasted!). It's an annual tradition! To welcome Santa, Smash-Up Derby
will take to the stage at 11 PM, throwing some live holiday mashups into their rocking set, and all night in the Main Room, Bootie founders and resident DJs A Plus D
-- along with opening DJ Dada
-- will be spreading the Christmash joy with a few holiday mashups sprinkled into the mix.
For the Midnight Mashup Show, Bootie LA's resident dance crew R.A.I.D.
(Random Acts of Irreverent Dance) comes up to celebrate with a special holiday-themed choreographed dance number. Upstairs in the Lounge, it's Ya Mamma's Basement, where Myster C & Mr. Washington spin hip-hop and R&B to get Santa and his elves bumpin' and grindin' on the dance floor, while DJ Keith Kraft
brings SEX! to the Loft, doing away with the need for mistletoe by filling it with that sexy electro-house you love! Plus, as always, there will be free giveaways of "A Very Bootie Christmas" CD!
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.
