"Mardi Gras" usually means a decadent celebration -- dancing and partying all night long in fantastic costumes -- in other words, just another Saturday night at Bootie! We'll get the Mardi Gras Mashquerade going 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! Laissez les bons temps rouler!
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 A Plus D, Tripp
, and Billy Jam
fill the Main Room with more rich decadent mashups than you can imagine, even though you don't have fast afterwards to enjoy them!
Upstairs in the Lounge, it's the return of Damn Gina, with DJ Fox
and Kool Karlo
spinning super fun dance music to get your groove on. In Above, it's Las Baygas, as DJs Ajax
, and Turnstylz spin Vegas-style club bangers to get you on the dance floor! And in the Dazzle Room, DJs Sam Fishman
bring Twerk Tavern, getting you all hot and sweaty with bootie-shaking songs! All this, plus FREE Bootie mashup CDs to the first 100 people, and club photography by ShutterSlut
, there to document all the decadence!
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.
