To celebrate the end of the Game Developers Conference this week, Bootie Mashup is proud to present Gamer Night, a mashed-up tribute to videogaming! Live on stage at 11 PM, Hubba Hubba Revue and the Monster Drag Show join forces to present burlesque and drag queen acts inspired by the performers' favorite classic videogames. DJ Adrian (of A Plus D) and Tripp
will mix in some chiptune and videogame-themed mashups into their sets as well, keeping the Main Room going late until it's "game over!"
Upstairs in Above, it's 8bitSF's Warp Zone -- soak in the sweet sounds of vintage gaming machines pushed to their limit by an eclectic and international cast of 8-bit musicians and DJs. Wielding Gameboys and Nintendos to smash the boundaries of genres like trance, electro, industrial and rock, expect live performances by Crashfaster
(SF), Aliceffekt (Tokyo), Rainbowdragoneyes
(Vancouver) and Wizwars
(LA). Plus, DJs Mr Smith (SJ), Tracer
(SF), Wepaflex (NYC), and Scrawny(KSCU 103.3) will keep the chiptune beats going between sets.
In the Lounge, it's Damn Gina, with DJ Fox
and Kool Karlo
spinning super fun dance music to get your groove on, while in the Dazzle Room, it's Las Baygas, as DJs Ajax
, and Turnstylz spin Vegas-style club bangers to get you on the dance floor! All this, plus FREE Bootie mashup CDs to the first 100 people, and club photography by ShutterSlut
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.
