It's Bootie's NYE Pre-Game Party -- avoid the New Year's Eve crowds and start your partying early! After all, you don't want to ring in the New Year as a big messy drunk vomiting in the bathroom -- build up your tolerance for New Year's drinking by "pre-gaming" at Bootie! Don't party like an amateur!
Smash-Up Derby gets you ready for the big calendar change with a rocking live mashup set at 11 PM, while resident DJs A Plus D
and opening DJ Dada will be throwing down the mashups in the Main Room. For the Midnight Mashup Show, aerialist House of Cinders
takes to the silks high above the crowd. And upstairs in the Lounge, Brass Tax will be taking over with DJs Marky Ray
, Haute Mess, and more bringing 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 nine 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.
