"Mardi Gras" usually means a decadent celebration -- dancing and partying all night long in fantastic costumes -- in other words, another Saturday night at Bootie! This year, Bootie is having its first-ever Mardi Gras Mashquerade, with plenty of masks, feathers, and beads to get you in the carnaval spirit! Dress to impress, or just show up in street clothes with your dancing shoes on -- because Bootie will have plenty of masks and beads on hand to get you ready for Mardi Gras!
Kicking the night off at 11 PM in full Bourbon Street style, Hubba Hubba Revue takes to the Main Stage to titillate and tease you with the Bay Area's best burlesque, and to make you wonder why you you don't have to throw beads to see all that sexy skin! Resident Bootie DJs Adrian (of A Plus D), Faroff
(from Bootie LA) and DJ Tripp
fill the Main Room with all the rich decadent mashups than you can imagine, even though you don't have fast afterwards to enjoy them!
Upstairs in the Lounge, Damn Gina! returns with their monthly residency, as DJ Fox
and Kool Karlo
spin super fun dance music to get your groove on. In the Loft, H.Y.S.L. brings the vibe of an upstart warehouse party back to the club -- from bass and synths, to hip hop and snare drums, get eclectic, get down, but always "Handle Your Shit, Lady!" And in the Dazzle Room, Radio Valencia, the Mission's community radio station, takes over with funk and hip-hop mashups. DJs Juan Rapido
, and Olde Nasty
spin the groovy tunes, while broadcasting live all night from the on
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.
