Once again, Bootie Mashup is hosting the biggest Santacon After-Party in San Francisco, as a bunch of drunks in cheap Santa suits invade the party! Anyone dressed in a Santa suit or holiday-themed costume gets in for free before 11 PM (but only if they're fully-dressed and not TOO wasted!). It's an annual tradition! To welcome Santa, Smash-Up Derby
will take to the stage at 11 PM, playing the most rockin' holiday mashup set ever, and for the Midnight Mashup Show, aerialist JonBenet Butterbuns
takes to the air high above the dance floor for a special holiday-themed performance. In the Main Room, Bootie founders and resident DJs A Plus D
, along with opening DJ Jimi G
, will be spreading the Christmash joy all night long, with a several holiday mashups sprinkled into the mix.
Upstairs, Cirque du Cliché takes over the Lounge, as DJs Airsun
spin music guaranteed to keep you bumping on the dance floor, while in Above, it's Gaslight Mafia, as DJ JsinJ manipulates classic jazz, using modern sounds and techniques to propel the past into the future, making you jump, jive, and wail with meticulously-crafted sets of electro-swing. And finally, in the dark and sexy Dazzle Room, Ya Mamma's Basement brings the party you threw when your mom was out of town ... the one you hoped she didn't come home early to catch you throwing. DJs Myster C and Mr. Washington will get you bumpin' and grindin' on the dance floor, as they highlight the connection between hip-hop, funk, old-school, and R&B! All this, plus drag hosts Holy McGrail
and Suppositori Spelling
