This month, live on stage, we are proud to present the world premiere of a new way of DJing – it’s called WiiJing! Created by DJ ! (pronounced Shift-1), this revolutionary new DJ style uses two hacked Nintendo Wiimotes – the controller from Nintendo’s new videogame system, Wii – to manipulate and control the music in a whole new way!
By hacking into two Nintendo Wiimotes, he was able to map controls on a PC DJing program that would allow him to DJ using the Wiimotes. He’s calling the technological mashup “WiiJing” and says it will change the way DJing is performed in the future. This new DJ style will have it’s world premiere on stage at club Bootie. To see how this works, check out this video on YouTube:
Yes, this is for real!!
Also performing will be DJ Funktified, who will be VJing alongside the WiiJing. The two together make up the Turlock-based group The Silence Xperiment, the mashup team responsible for last year’s infamous bootleg album, Q-Unit, which mashed up Queen vs. 50 Cent. This is one show you do not want to miss!
It’s practically a rite of passage for a rock band to eventually perform an “unplugged” acoustic set – and this month, Bootie house band SMASH-UP DERBY fulfills this time-honored rock tradition. They’ll be performing their biggest mashup hits … UNPLUGGED! It’s looking to be a “very special” set – Jason is even trading in his guitar for the conga!
Taking over the upstairs room this month are three resident DJs from THE FRINGE, the arts collective known in San Francisco and Burning Man circles for hosting a wild variety of live music and art-infused events like the Icebreakers Ball, Freaksgiving, and FreQ-o de Mayo. DJs Motion Potion, Big Dolla, and Tim Dietz play out an entire spectrum of music with genre-bending sets. They regularly bust out the freakish talents to rock a mixed house of indie rockheads, breakdancers, jam banders, and freaky underground clubers at the same time. Don’t miss this unique, mashed-up bootleg-only set from these freaks!
In the San Francisco drag scene, RENTTECCA is known as the “filthiest person alive” … and that’s why we love her! You might have seen her at her clubs Bearacudda and Trans Am, but tonight, we are happy to have her back at Bootie for the midnight mashup show, joined on stage by local drag superstar COCO CANAL. They’ll be performing to Oli Clifford‘s fantastic Destiny’s Child vs. Arctic Monkeys bootleg.
Of course, resident Bootie DJs ADRIAN, MYSTERIOUS D, and PARTY BEN, will be in the main room, spinning all your favorite mashups throughout the night. And filling in for the vacationing DJ DADA will be the Bootie debut of DJ FABBRI, who will be spinning for the first hour from 9-10 PM. Come out early and show him some love!
We’ve got free Bootie CDs to the first 50 people, and it’s 2 for 1 before 10:30 pm, so getting to Bootie early is a good thing!
We hope to see you this Saturday!
