This year has been devastating for music lovers, and the passing of Prince was a particularly shocking loss. His raw talent, unbridled energy, and awe-inspiring live shows were unparalleled. While many of us are still reeling from his loss, Bootie instead wants to celebrate the life and music of the Purple One the only way we know how: by throwing a party and playing all the best Prince originals, remixes, and mashups, along with other Prince-associated songs and artists, with special performances throughout the night! So this Memorial Day weekend, resident DJs ShyBoy and Nubar will spin all the Prince songs you love, both obscure and his hits, along with Prince tracks mashed up and remixed. There will be special Prince performances through the night, including ShyBoy singing a live Prince number, Astro Doves performing on the aerial silks, and resident dance crew R.A.I.D. giving you purple go-go insanity. Plus, you can win drink tickets by answering random Prince trivia!

BOOTIE LA
BOOTIE LA
Launched in 2003 by San Francisco DJ duo A Plus D — and held down in Los Angeles since 2005 with resident DJ ShyBoy and dance crew R.A.I.D. (Random Acts of Irreverent Dance) -- 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. Winning various nightlife awards over the 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.

Shyboy
ShyBoy is a singer/songwriter, producer and DJ/mashup artist. The Huffington Post notes that he "casts a fresh, intelligent spell over the indie pop landscape." BuzzBands.LA says his versatility is "wonderfully dramatic." Sinewy rhythms and bold sonic colors surround his deftly melodic vocals. ShyBoy has had numerous music placements, including ABC's Super Fun Night, CW's America's Next Top Model and the multiplatinum Capcom video game The Devil May Cry 4. He's also remixed tracks for iconic artists such as Donna Summer, Beyoncé and Whitney Houston and collaborated with numerous writers and artists including SlimKid3 of The Pharcyde, RuPaul (RuPaul's Drag Race), Emmy-winning composer Jim Dooley, Grammy-winning songwriter Allee Willis and TV producer Bryan Fuller (Hannibal).
R.A.I.D.
Random Acts of Irreverent Dance is a radically inclusive and absurdly ambitious dance project, dreamt up in 2006 during a high blood sugar hallucination by Ramie Becker, or as she likes to call herself, the "Dance Commander"-(we humor her and go along with it, it's just easier that way). Starting out as a guerrilla dance collective that terrorized the likes of downtown LA and Hollywood, RAID soon found a home at BootieLA's weekly mashup club at the Echoplex and The Regent (Bootiela.com). Now, every Saturday, Random Acts of Irreverent Dance RAIDS (get it, get it?) the Echoplex or Regent stage and imposes their bizarre dance sensibilities on an unsuspecting crowd of BootieLA patrons. With the love and support of Bootie founders, Paul V., Adrian and Deidre Roberts, RAID continues to astound, amaze, bewilder, and delight audiences with our irreverent approach to dance-making and our gold spandexed glory. So as soon as Saturday rolls around, you know where to go. Don't fight, just feel it, and come watch us at BootieLA. Submit to the suit....the gold suit, that is.
