Bootie's love affair with New York Post's PopWrap continues with another 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. Download here.

Check out this interview at SFStation with A Plus D in anticipation of their epic Bootie New Years Eve party at Mezzanine.

For most of the month of November, we'll be in Southeast Asia and Australia, bringing Bootie to four different cities on two continents!

Why isn't Robyn's "Dancing On My Own" a hit in the U.S.? It's a summertime smash over in Europe, but America has been slow to catch on. Perhaps by mashing it up with a #1 U.S. single from five years ago – in this case, the over-produced pop-rock of Kelly Clarkson's "Since U Been Gone" – we can help Robyn's chances of making it in America. At least we can try.

DECEMBER 2009: After seeing the Lady Gaga show in San Francisco, we mash her up! We just HAD to do SOMETHING with "Bad Romance" and so here we are, finding common ground between two songs nearly 28 years apart. May we present "Don't You Want My Bad Romance," where early '80s electro-pop pioneers Human League get a hot new singer! CLICK HERE TO DOWNLOAD Lady GaGa vs. Human League (AplusD MashupMix)

To celebrate Bootie's 5th Anniversary, Adrian & the Mysterious D presented "Revenge Of The A+D Show," a sequel to last year's epic multimedia mashup extravaganza, which featured their own mashups in a stage show combining mashup videos, drag numbers, live performances, go-go dancers, an audience sing-along, and even a live Guitar Hero mashup. The performers in the show were a veritable "who's who" from the SF underground. It was an hour-long feast for the senses, performed in front of nearly 1500 people ... TONS OF PHOTOS FROM THE SHOW HERE!

AUGUST 2007: Photos from "The A+D Show" posted!
On August 11, 2007, at the Bootie 4-Year Anniversary Party at the DNA Lounge, we staged "The A+D Show," a multimedia mashup extravaganza. This was no mere DJ set. We showcased our own mashups in a stage show which combined mashup videos, mashup movie shorts, go-go dancers, and several live performances including: live singing, drag performance, an audience sing-along, and even a live Guitar Hero mashup. There was something different for every song. The performances featured many of the "who's who" in the SF drag scene, and even had it's own theme dancers, The Glitter Hotties. Photos from this epic event can be found here!

MARCH 2007: We're on Idolator!
Or rather, our hot-off-the-laptop mashup, "Standing In The Way Of Connection," which mashes up The Gossip with Elastica, just got blurbed about on Idolator. For some reason, I will always associate this track with our first Bootie NYC party last weekend. You see, we went to New York the week before to promote for the party, and it seemed like every indie party we went to, it wouldn't be more than 15 minutes before some version of "Standing In The Way of Control" by The Gossip would get dropped. This song has been out for well over a year -- why is it getting so popular NOW? Anyway, we made this on our laptop on the plane flight over, and debuted it downstairs at Bootie NYC last Friday. It's indie-licious!

FEBRUARY 2007: Two A plus D tracks featured on the album, Mixed Emotions - Tunes for Valentines Day. Mashup Industries has just released this internet-only double album of mashed-up love songs, and we contributed two bootlegs, the Bootie sing-along favorite, "Don't Stop Believin' In Planet Rock," and a number custom-made for one of our midnight mashup shows, "Heart of Puppini." They can both be downloaded at right, or click on the cover at right to get to the whole album.

DECEMBER 2006: Our Sarah Silverman holiday mashup appears on Santastic II: Clausome! When San Francisco performance artist Foxy Cotton told us he wanted to perform Sarah Silverman's irreverent "Give The Jew Girl Toys" for the Christmas midnight mashup show at Bootie, we had no idea what we were going to do to mash it up. But then Sarah Silverman gave us an idea. "Da Da Da" by Trio ... "Is that German?" Yup ... just like Santa Claus. Speaking of, that's Adrian doing the "ho ho ho's" at the end! You can find the download to the right. Click on the cover to get to the whole album.

OCTOBER 2006: Adrian & the Mysterious D interviewed in the SF Weekly The October 18, 2006 issue features a lengthly article called "DJ Culture 101: the Critical Mash Honors Club," where Adrian and D discuss mashup culture and their club Bootie. This was the issue that came out the same day as the SF Weekly Music Awards at the Warfield Theatre, where A+D were nominated in the "Best DJ" category, and also spun for the VIP reception. You can read the article here.

AUGUST 2006: Bootie voted "Best Dance Club" in the Readers Poll of the San Francisco Bay Guardian's BEST OF THE BAY 2006! The Guardian writes: "Dancing to a catchy song at a club just isn't enough for our readers. They want to dance to two catchy songs — at the same time. Such is the alluring magic of mashups, and of club Bootie at DNA Lounge ... Bootie loves to fuck with pop culture, two songs at a time, every second Friday of the month." You can read more here.

AUGUST 2006: Three A plus D mashups appear on the CD The Best Mashups In The World Ever Are From San Francisco 2, the sequel to last year's underground compilation sensation. 13 Bay Area DJs and mashup artists have bootlegs on this new, 19-track CD. It has great sonic quality, and sounds as if it were digitally mastered, as opposed to simply burned from MP3s. You can read all about it here at Beatmixed.com, and in San Francisco it is available at Amoeba Records on Haight Street and Medium Rare and Tower Records in the Castro. It's also available at Turntable Lab, HipHopSite, and several other online record stores.
