Bootie celebrates the Emerald Isle with our St. Paddy's Pre-Party, where everyone's a little bit Irish-ish! Keeping the party bumping until the leprechauns come out will be resident Bootie DJs Adriana A
, and Dada
, and they'll be throwing down a few 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, drag host Qween
gives you a very different St. Paddy's Day vision.
Upstairs in the Lounge, it's Swaaamp, as disco, house, and more gets purposely pitched down 10% for a thick, swampy, bent and funked-slowly sound, while in Above, Gaslight Mafia manipulates classic swing and jazz with modern sounds, plus Post Cliché takes over the Dazzle Room, keeping you moving on the dance floor! Club photographer ShutterSlut
captures the fun, and there are FREE Bootie mashup CDs to the first 100 people!
Launched in 2003 by San Francisco DJ duo A Plus D, Bootie was the first club night dedicated solely to the then-new bootleg mashup -- and is now the biggest mashup event in the world, with regular parties in several cities across the globe.
