When you think of the '90s, you realize it was a decade that was musically mixed up. Nirvana or Prodigy? Snoop Dogg or Backstreet Boys? Spice Girls or Alanis Morrisette? Well, when Bootie throws a '90s party, you pick ALL of them ... mashed up, of course! Bring your acid-washed wonderfulness, flannel and ripped denim, board shorts, leotard and jeans combos, baggy jeans, and hip-huggers ... the '90s are back for one night! At 11 PM, Bootie's own house band Smash-Up Derby
will take to the stage, playing a special '90s rock mashup set, while aerialist Electric Blue
takes to the silks high above your heads for the Midnight Mashup Show. Also in the Main Room, resident DJs Adrian, Tripp
, and opening DJ JimiG will be mixing and mashing all the '90s genres with music from multiple decades, paying homage to the era while keeping the music fresh.
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 and guests manipulate classic swing and 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, it's Bump Twerk Boom, as DJs Rockit
and Ryan Andrew
make you bump, sweat, and grind with bootie-twerking bass! All this, plus drag hosts Holy McGrail
and Suppositori Spelling
