Bootie celebrates the Emerald Isle with our St. Paddy's Pre-Party, where everyone's a little bit Irish-ish -- but this year we're doing it with the Italian electro-mashup kings, everyone's favorite box-headed aliens, DJs From Mars
! (Italy is sorta close to Ireland, right?) Joining them in keeping the party bumping until the leprechauns come out will be resident Bootie DJs A Plus D
and opening DJ JimiG, and they'll be throwing down some special Irish mashes into the mix, helping to make sure that everyone gets their jig on! Don't forget to wear GREEN!
At 11 PM, live mashup rock band Smash-Up Derby
will add a little Irish flavor to their set, while for the Midnight Mashup Show, aerialist JonBenet Butterbuns
performs a special St. Paddy's act above your heads!
Upstairs, Cirque du Cliché takes over the Lounge, as DJs Airsun
spin music guaranteed to keep you bumping on the dance floor. In Above, it's Gaslight Mafia, as DJs JsinJ and Jazzy Fox
-- along with Mike Parykaza
on live trumpet accompaniment -- manipulate classic swing and jazz, using modern sounds and techniques to propel the past into the future, making you jump, jive, and wail. Plus singers Mojo DeVille
and Sevon "the singing" Caneri will be delivering sultry songs over JsinJ's beats shortly after midnight! 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
, plus free Bootie mashup CDs to the first 100 people!

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.
