About this event
To celebrate the end of the Game Developers Conference this week, Bootie SF is proud to present Gamer Night, a mashed-up tribute to videogaming! Live on stage at 11 PM, the Monster Drag Show throws down a non-stop drag tribute to all the best videogames, while special guest DJ Freddy, King of Pants (Bootie Seattle) joins resident DJs A Plus D as they mix in some chiptune and videogame-themed mashups into their sets, keeping the Main Room going until it’s “game over!”
Upstairs in Above, it’s 8bitSF – soak in the sweet sounds of vintage gaming machines pushed to their limit by an eclectic and international cast of 8-bit musicians and DJs. Wielding Gameboys and Nintendos to smash the boundaries of genres like trance, electro, industrial and rock, expect live performances by Crashfaster (SF) and other special guests in town for the week. Plus, DJ Mr. Smith and guests will keep the chiptune beats going between sets. In the Lounge, it’s Retro Remix, as DJ Tripp gives classic songs a modern makeover, while in the Dazzle Room, DJ MC2 and Paul Goodyear keep your feet moving and your bodies bouncing with the Monster Electro-House Party! All this, plus drag hosts Suppositori Spelling and Holy McGrail, as well as club photography by ShutterSlut, and FREE Bootie mashup CDs to the first 100 people!
Launched in 2003 by San Francisco DJ duo A Plus D, Bootie was the first club night dedicated solely to the then-burgeoning artform of the bootleg mashup — and is now the biggest mashup event in the world, with regular parties in several cities on four continents. Voted “Best Club Night” for the past nine years, Bootie celebrates pop culture both past and present, keeping your brain guessing and body dancing with creative song combinations. Mixing and matching every musical genre, era, and style into one big dance party, it’s a place where everyone is welcome. And with free mashup CDs given away like candy, Bootie provides the soundtrack for the A.D.D. generation.
