Bootie is, like, totally ready to ride a radical wave of bitchin' nostalgia -- it's '80s Mashup Night! Time to pull out your pastel colors, awesome leg warmers, big hair, headbands, black-and-white Vans sneakers, and big plastic jewelry -- because this is going to be a rad retro party, done up Bootie-style! Main Room DJs A Plus D
and opening DJ JimiG will be mashing up the best '80s music from every genre, mixing them with songs from every era, all night long! At 11 PM, house band Smash-Up Derby
takes the stage for a live set of '80s rock mashups, while drag group extraordinaire The Speed Queens
throw down a bitchin' Midnight Mashup Show!
In the Lounge, it's Cirque du Cliché, as DJs Airsun
spin music guaranteed to keep your feet bouncing on the dance floor. In Above, it's BoomSwing Cabaret, as DJ JsinJ & Damien/Smudge
tempt swing dancers and club dancers alike with authentic swing music laced with throbbing house beats. Singer Sevon Caneri
mashes up elegance with electronica and jazz fetishism, singing over live beats shortly after midnight. And finally, Bump Twerk Boom takes over the Dazzle Room, with DJs Rockit
and Ryan Andrew
making you bump, sweat, and grind with bootie-twerking bass!
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.
