Bootie SF, the mothership of all Bootie parties, will soon be celebrating its 9-Year Anniversary, so we were elated to once again be voted the “Best Overall Dance Party” in the SF Bay Guardian “Best of the Bay 2012″ Readers Poll. And last month, A Plus D from Bootie we were voted “Best Event Producers” in the SF Weekly “Best of SF 2012″ Readers Poll.
Thanks to Vincent Giorgetti of Facing Halo Films, we now have another new promo video! Bootie Mashup creators and DJs A Plus D are seen in action at both Bootie SF at DNA Lounge and Bootie LA at Echoplex, along with Bootie house band Smash-Up Derby. This really captures the energy and insanity of a typical Bootie party! Shot in February 2012.
If you live in San Francisco and you’re going to the Golden Gate Bridge 75th Anniversary at Marina Green tomorrow – Saturday May 26 – A Plus D from Bootie Mashup will be spinning a special DJ set from 3-4:30 PM.
After years of not really having any “proper” promo videos, Bootie now has TWO!
The second video was produced by Bootie Rio’s I Hate Flash crew, who came to Bootie SF in April, and features hilarious commentary from DJ John!John! who compares mashups to … sandwiches! Check ‘em out!
In a few days, we’ll be heading off to Europe for the rest of April! We’re playing seven parties in seven cities. Woo-hoo! Full details here.

We were so frantically busy at South By Southwest in Austin last week, that we forgot to post our interview with Your Music Radar! Check it out here.
We are on our way to China this week, to bring two Bootie parties. The first one will be our debut in Shanghai on Friday 23 March at The Geisha. And then on Saturday 24 March, we return to Hong Kong for our third appearance at KEE Club. Check out the flyers below for more details!
For the first time ever, Bootie is going to South By Southwest in Austin, Texas! We – A Plus D – will be spinning at two different events – the first is Mashable‘s party during the interactive portion of SXSW, and the other is our own Bootie Austin party!
Immediately after South By Southwest, we’re heading to New York City to do our Bootie NYC St. Paddy’s Mashup Party at (Le) Poisson Rouge on Saturday, March 17. To ensure entry, buy advance tickets here.
And then the following week, we’re headed to China to do a pair of Bootie parties, both at the KEE club – in Shanghai on Friday, March 23 and Hong Kong on Saturday, March 24.
A Plus D, creators of Bootie Mashup, will be gigging outside of their native California quite a bit in March and April with a series of dates in the U.S., China, and Europe, as well as bringing their mashup love to South By Southwest in Austin, Texas for the first time.
If you’d like to book A Plus D as DJs OR book a Bootie event on this tour please send us an email!
We’re back from Burning Man, where we had two of our best Bootie BRC parties evah! Needless to say, it took us while to get back up to speed after partying in the desert for a week – not to mention having to run multiple Bootie parties in their various locales – but now we’re ramping up to head off to Southeast Asia in October, where we’ll be doing an A+D Bootie mini-tour of Singapore, Vietnam (Hanoi & Ho Chi Minh City), and Bangkok. Here are our gig dates:

And back in the good ol’ US of A, Bootie Boston’s dj BC has relocated to Atlanta, where he will be launching Bootie ATL on Saturday, October 15. He just couldn’t stay away! For many years, we talked about possibly doing a party in Atlanta, and are elated that BC is finally bringing the mashup action to the Dirty South!
And finally, across the pond in Europe, Bootie Vienna returned, and it’s looking like Bootie Amsterdam will hopefully soon become a reality.
Building a mashup club empire, one brick at a time!
Amoeblog: Now Entering Ninth Year of Their Successful Mashup Party, Bootie SF’s Tireless Duo of A+D Show No Signs Of Slowing DownPosted in AplusD, BOOTIE SF on August 28th, 2011 by Adrian
Check out this great article on the Amoeblog about Bootie SF’s 8-Year Anniversary, which includes a short interview with Bootie’s founders, Adrian & Mysterious D.
Thanks to Billy Jam for writing us up!
We just saw Kreayshawn last night at her homecoming show at Slim’s in San Francisco, and though it was only a short, 35-minute set (with the White Girl Mob full representing), we felt we had witnessed the start of something big. In honor of Kreayshawn’s looming success, we’re posting the video for our A Plus D mashup, “Gucci Gucci Girl Power,” which mashes her up with three decades’ worth of female artists – Toni Basil, Le Tigre, The Ting Tings, The Go-Go’s, and Kreayshawn’s mom’s surf-punk band from the ’90s, The Trashwomen. Thanks to Dylan Vasey for editing together the video!
This coming Easter weekend, Bootie is going to The Netherlands to take part in its first European festival, Paaspop in Schijndel. An entire area, called “Mashup Ville,” has been dedicated to mashups, and we – A Plus D – will be doing headlining sets each night.
We’ll be joined by some of the best names in the European mashup scene, including many of our personal friends and colleagues, including Bootie Berlin‘s DJ Morgoth, Dr. Waumiau, and Mashup-Germany, as well as DJ Schmolli and Simon Idoll. We’re also looking forward to meeting for the first time some of the faces behind the names we’ve known for so long, such as Bootie Top 10ers MadMixMustang, G3rst, Pheugoo, and Mash2Mix, as well as Dylan Vasey, Bo the Man, and Siegmund Fred.
To commemorate the event, DJ Morgoth has put together the mixtape, “Mashurrected 2011,” featuring mashups from the entire DJ line-up of Mashup Ville at Paaspop. Click above to give it a listen, or to download the album, click here!
Looking forward to two days of hanging out with our fellow mashup DJs, and partying with the Dutch! Mad props to MadMixMustang for helping to put this whole thing together!
Bootie’s love affair with New York Post’s PopWrap continues with this, a PopWrap exclusive and A Plus D’s first mashup of 2011 – a concept so screamingly obvious that we HAD to “whip it up” (pun intended) before there were a zillion other versions out there.
For most of the month of November, we’ll be in Southeast Asia and Australia, bringing Bootie to four different cities on two continents!

FRIDAY 12 NOVEMBER – HONG KONG, CHINA
Halloween madness! A+D to play with Jersey Shore’s Pauly D at Refi Rock at Pacha NYC, Halloween Booootie in SF, scary new A+D mashup!Posted in AplusD on October 26th, 2010 by Adrian
It’s almost Halloween, and we’ve been busy! First up, we – A Plus D – will be DJing this Thursday, October 28th, at the annual Refi Rock Halloween Party at Pacha in New York City, which is a benefit for the Boomer Esiason Foundation.
Not only are we DJing for a good cause, we’re also DJing … with Pauly D, of Jersey Shore fame! A Plus D Plus Pauly D — what’s not to like? Halloween party, yeaaaah! We’ll be sure to take pictures.
After the party, we fly back to San Francisco just in time to throw our epic Halloween Booootie party at the DNA Lounge. We just finished compiling the “Halloween Booootie 2″ CD, filled with 13 spooktacular Halloween-themed mashups. We’ll be giving them away FREE to the first 300 people in costume, but for a sneak preview, check out our latest A Plus D mashup: “Psycho Killer On The Dancefloor.”
In this week’s cover story of the San Francisco Bay Guardian, entitled “Parties Without Borders,” we are prominently featured in an article about how a few San Francisco promoters are exporting their parties to other cities, with a focus on Bootie, and, more specifically, our recent Europe/Asia/Brazil tour.
Check it out, it’s a really good read! Thanks, Marke B.!
