As the creator of the “Zebramix” show on Oui FM – France’s biggest indie rock radio station – and producer of the very popular Zebramix bootleg parties, DJ Zebra has unquestionably been a driving force in bringing mashups to France. His live mashup set at Bootie last year was legendary, and probably one of the best guest DJ sets we’ve ever had at the club! Zebra engages the crowd, has killer mashups in his arsenal, and really knows how to rock the party.
He’s spent the past summer touring around Europe, playing in front of thousands of people at several huge European summer festivals – and now he’s capping it all off by returning to San Francisco for his third annual appearance!
But before his live on-stage DJ set, he’ll also be showcasing his side project, the Bootlegs Live Band, with DJ Moule – and playing with Smash-Up Derby.
French and American relations will take on a whole new meaning this Saturday when Bootie house band SMASH-UP DERBY mashes up their set with the Paris-based BOOTLEGS LIVE BAND, featuring French DJs Zebra and Moule. Their take on the “live mashup band” is markedly different than Smash-Up Derby’s, as they play live instruments to pre-recorded acapella vocal tracks. Members of Smash-Up Derby will join them, and then Zebra and Moule will guest on a couple Derby mashups, mashing up French lyrics with the English ones. Two mashup bands mashing up each other’s mashups – how meta can we get?
DJ MOULE has been one of our favorite mashup artists for a while now – there’s probably not a single Bootie party where some of his crowd-pleasing mashups haven’t been dropped – and this Saturday, he’ll be doing it himself, as this popular French DJ makes his American debut. This will be his first show ever in the U.S. and we are excited to have him! He is absolutely one of France’s best bootleg producers and DJs.
We are delighted to host his first American appearance!
We’re gonna party like it’s 2003! Before most people even knew what a “mashup” was, Bootie was held on a Wednesday night at a small, struggling nightclub in SoMA called the Cherry Bar (now Annie’s Social Club). Back then, if we had 150 people there, we were having a good night. But although it may have been small at the time, it was still a helluva lot of fun, with a great crowd of mashup fans. Eventually, we outgrew the space – to say it was hot with 400 people crammed in there would be an understatement – but we still can’t help but feel a little nostalgic about our “roots.”
So this Saturday, in the upstairs room of the DNA Lounge, we’re going to relive those early days, as we do the Cherry Bar Lounge! Your resident DJs ADRIAN & the MYSTERIOUS D, PARTY BEN, and DADA – all of whom were at the very first Bootie party back in 2003 – will only be spinning mashups made before 2005, the ones we used to spin “back in the day.” We’ll be projecting a slide show containing over 2000 club photos taken at Cherry Bar. And if you happen to collect Bootie flyers, we’ll have nearly every old Bootie flyer from the Cherry Bar days there!
Come get a taste of how it all began!
When LA performer Heathervescent performed this pre-Halloween midnight mashup show at Bootie LA last year, we just knew we had to get her and her crew up to San Francisco! So this month – just in time for Halloween – we are proud to present Gwenchael Jackfani & the Hollaback Zombies. Zombie cheerleaders? All we can tell you about the number is that this shit is B-A-N-A-N-A-S!
As always, we’ve got free Bootie CDs to the first 75 people and its 2 for 1 before 10:30 pm, so get there early!
