Please join us for opening night at Bootie LA’s new home, Safari Sam’s. Many of you had been asking us to move closer to Hollywood, so when you people talk – Bootie LA listens. Safari Sam’s has a great reputation, and we’re very excited to have teamed up with them to bring you the best mashup dance party in LA. We’ve got lots of great entertainment lined up in the next few months, but there’s nothing like an opening night party, so we hope to see you there!
To celebrate our move to Safari Sam’s, we are proud to present what many consider the pioneers of the modern-day mashup movement – THE EVOLUTION CONTROL COMMITTEE. Since 1986, The ECC has steadily built a worldwide reputation by creating sample-based music of questionable legality. Long before the sampler and computers made it easy, The ECC was violating copyright laws the hard way. They are widely acknowleged as the creators of the first mashup, back in the early ’90s, with The Whipped Cream Mixes, featuring Public Enemy vs. Herb Alpert & the Tijuana Brass. Various press articles have acknowledged The ECC as the “Godfather of the Mashup”.
The ECC is once again breaking new mashup ground with a live mashup show featuring The Wheel Of Mashup. The wheel is actually two wheels: the outer one chooses the music, and the inner one chooses the vocals. Audience members are brought up on stage to spin the wheel, and the music and vocals are mashed up on the fly. In fact, all of the show’s music is mashed up live, which makes the show more spontaneous and alive than an ordinary DJ set. It’s a short attention span dream mix – 60 songs mashed into 40 minutes.
Don’t miss this rare live performance – The ECC goes on at 10:30 PM SHARP!
To get a taste of some of the mashups we’ll be playing, be sure to tune in to Paul V.’s Smash Mix this Friday at 5:30 pm on Indie 103.1.
For our first midnight mashup show on the big stage at Safari Sam’s, we are happy to feature LA performance artist FOXY COTTON – who, while living in San Francisco, was our resident performer at our Mini-Bootie parties. He was also the mastermind behind last year’s mini rock-opera version of the Dean Gray – American Edit bootleg album, and he knows how to put on a show!
Of course, it wouldn’t be Bootie without free mashup CDs – so as usual, we’ll have this month’s new 10-track Bootie CD for the first 50 people through the door! (And sure, maybe a few more to give away at midnight.)
But if you really want one, be sure to get there early – and remember, it’s also only $6 before 10:30 PM!
We hope to see you this Saturday!
