This week, the creator of the first mashup club in Barcelona comes to Bootie -- it's DJ Surda
of MashCat MashuParty! He's been spreading the love about mashups to a whole new country and producing some of the best tracks to come out of that region, and now he's going to throw down for Bootie -- both in the upstairs lounge with special guest DJ Lucio K
, as well as a special late set in the Main Room. It's a rare chance to see how mashups are done on the other side of the world! Joining him in the Main Room will be resident DJs A Plus D
, with opening DJ Dada
, as they keep the floor bumping up with the best mashups in the universe!
At 11 PM, mashup rock band Smash-Up Derby
takes to the stage, playing the live mashups you love, while fierce diva Cemora Valentino-Devine
returns to tear up the stage for the Midnight Mashup Show! All this, plus Brass Tax blows up the Loft with their signature delirious sound that continues to tear the roof off at their monthly rager in the Mission!
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.
