So Coachella sold out before you could get tickets to the big festival? Come out for the next best thing: Bootchella! Resident DJs A Plus D
and opening DJ JimiG -- along with Bootie's very own live mashup rock band, Smash-Up Derby
-- will be playing music from Coachella artists throughout the night! But there's one big twist -- they'll all be mashed up!
For the Midnight Mashup Show, aerialist Sylvia N'Guessan
will take to the air high above the dance floor! Plus Bootchella have three different dance tents, er, upstairs rooms, for you to get down in: Bootie Rio takes over the Loft, as Brazilian DJ André Pipipi
comes to SF, to be joined by special guests Entyme
. In the Lounge, DJ DCNSTRCT
, the troublemaker behind Cockfight -- along with DJ Becky Knox
-- brings A.D.D. (Attention Deficit Disco) to medicate you with indie, electro, and disco house sounds. And finally, in the Dazzle Room, Airsun
and Chucky Brown
bring Cirque du Cliché, playing music that is guaranteed to keep you grinding on the floor! It might not be the "real" Coachella, but it's 3000 percent cheaper and you won't get sunburned!
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.
