If you had a chance to cut a rug for one more night in 2011, where would you go? We'd hit up FRINGE in a heartbeat, the best dance night in the city, where DJs Blondie K & subOctave spin the best modern indie rock and electro pop from Daft Punk to The Strokes to The Rapture. And it doesn't stop there–they do it up with giant video projections, which means for one night a month, you can pretend the glory of MTV never died. For only the second time this year, it takes over DNA Lounge, which means more dance floor square footage, more mind-bending projections and more drinks to go around.
Is the mash-up dead?
Not according to Bootie, which throws its post-Thanksgiving party and latest bimonthly pop deconstructo-fest tonight, Nov. 28, at DNA Lounge.
Still providing “the soundtrack for the A.D.D. generation,” the bash centers on a mano-y-mano mash-up DJ battle set by DJs Adrian and the Mysterious D. Upstairs, DJ Mykill, Kidhack, and Mario Muse put the focus on electro remixes, covers, and bootlegs. And there are live mash-ups for all when Smash-up Derby, Bootie’s live house band, performs at 11-ish, while Monistat chases the whole shebang at midnight.
It has come to our attention that the Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control is threatening our beloved DNA Lounge with some legal troubles that, if successful, will shut it down permanently. Where will we go for our bimonthly Bootie parties or the grungy industrial evening of Meat? With the Grinch of nightclubs now upon us, the future is so uncertain.
Basically the background beef is this:
*DNA Lounge tried to convert their 21+ liquor license into an all ages full retaurant establishment in order to fully explore the live music scene.
*Their application is denied by The ABC for no apparent reason.
