Watch and listen:

Bootie hits a nightclub milestone -- 15 years of mashing it up in San Francisco! What began as a small monthly party for 100 people way back in 2003 is now a long-running San Francisco success story. Created by mashup lovers Adrian A and Mysterious D, Bootie SF became a genre-busting party like no other, winning numerous "Best Dance Party" awards, and becoming one of the driving forces of mashup culture, introducing club-goers to the clever sound of two or more songs fused together as one, long before anyone even knew what a "mashup" was.

For this special night, we take you back to where it all began, with Bootie's original DJ line-up from our very first party -- Adrian A, Mysterious D, and Dada, along with the triumphant return of legendary mashup DJ Party Ben, as they all spin the greatest mashups from the last decade-and-a-half. At 11 PM, it's Smash-Up Derby vs. Hubba Hubba Revue, as the Bay Area's best burlesque show gets backed by Bootie's very own live mashup rock band. The Monster Show brings drag queens for the Midnight Mashup Show, hip-hop fills the upstairs Lounge, and it's all still only $10 before 10 PM!

Launched in San Francisco in 2003, Bootie Mashup throws the biggest and best all-mashup dance parties in the world, mixing and matching pop songs both past and present. With its theme parties and clever mashup formula, Bootie Mashup has been an unstoppable juggernaut for nearly 15 years, winning numerous nightlife awards in multiple cities. Keeping your brain guessing and body dancing with creative song combinations, it's the soundtrack for the A.D.D. generation.

The Dirty Talk Game Show is a fun night where four naughty-tongued panelists fight the clock to say just the right thing, before the other panelists steal the clock and finish it up right.

In turn each naughty panelist is given a topic to talk about for sixty seconds without repeating themselves, pausing too long, or deviating from the subject (They can be deviants, they just can't deviate from the subject). If they do any of that, the other panelists pounce and steal the timer and finish it out. The winner with the most naughty points will be crowned the Filthiest Mouth in San Francisco. Join us to cheer on your favorite naughty panelist!

Watch and listen:

There was a time when dance music was 145bpm, DJs played vinyl, Live 105 played "Save the Rave" and F-8 records had a line of Kandi Kids down the block trying to get map point tickets. After a long voyage in deep space, Frequency 8 is once again landing in San Francisco. With the So Stoked vibe, Frequency 8 feel, and alien technology brought back to earth, the adventure is sure to be unforgettable.

Winner of "Best American DJ" at the IDMA's, Christopher Lawrence is recognized as one of the world's top DJs and producers. A dance music legend, he has been described as "One of America's most influential DJs" by DJ Mag and "A trailblazer" by SPIN. With twenty years behind the decks, Christopher is one of the most credible names in dance music whose outspoken support of the underground has earned him the respect of industry and fans alike. He is recognized worldwide as the driving force behind the trance scene in America for over two decades. Always pushing boundaries, Christopher's tough tech trance and psytrance infused sets are a favorite on dance floors at the darkest downtown afterhours to the world's biggest festivals.

The youngest ever (at 15) DJ presenter to grace BBC Radio 1, Crissy Criss has flown the flag for Drum and Bass with his weekly Radio 1Xtra show delighting listeners for over ten years and winning 4 Best Radio Station Awards. Using his undeniable mixing talent and respected position, Crissy Criss has become an ambassador for D&B - representing the genre at numerous 1Xtra Live gigs alongside the likes of Alesha Keys, Disclosure, Chase & Status and more and appearing on Doctor P & Flux Pavilion's flagship label Circus Records.

Dedicated to spreading the sound of Cybertrance, Mars opened Frequency 8, America's first record store dedicated to the trance movement. From the success of Frequency 8, Mars would go on to create his own international record label and event organization of the same name. In 2000 Mars and Mystre released their bestselling two CD compilation album "Faith In 2000". The album included fifteen tracks by artists like Art Of Trance, DJ Tandu, and ATB.

Watch and listen:

Tom Andersson, known professionally as Waveshaper, is a Swedish electronic musician specialising in synthwave. Inspired by artists like Jean Michel Jarre, Kraftwerk and Daft Punk, as well as 80s movie soundtracks, his music is retrofuturistic and is composed with a variety of hardware synthesizers, including the ARP 2600, Roland Jupiter-4, and Korg MS-20. A great deal of Waveshaper's music often sounds like it's been scored to a movie and the music has the ability to inspire images in your mind. Waveshaper's music is a voyage. A voyage beyond time and space, beyond what we know. There's something spectacular about this artist in that he manages to tell a story with his music - in the current world of music, that's certainly a rare quality."

Absolute Valentine is a synthwave french producer who delivers brilliant 80's electro influenced music. His music takes you back to an era when cassettes, VHS, laser discs and CD's were part of every day living.
