Prom. We just passed that time of year. Who’s going with who? Dancing, after parties. What’s the theme?
Well, most of us are a little past high school and all that drama but that doesn’t mean we don’t like relive that from time to time!
I can’t remember if we’ve posted about Bootie before but if not here we go!
L.A.’s biggest mash-up dance party recently held their first ever Bootie Prom! We all decided to go stag and make it a much needed Ladies’ Night!
For some reason we decided to go 80s. It just naturally happens really, I don’t necessarily plan it out. I’m just so good at it.
If you’re unfamiliar with Bootie it’s a huge mash-up dance party held in the Echoplex in LA. They do it twice a month now because it just got to be so popular. It’s world wide and there’s Booties held in Rio, Brazil and all over the U.S. I for one, MUST make it to a Bootie San Francisco next time I’m up there. For a nominal fee, you enter into the warehouse like setting to shake your bottom like you’ve never before.
The DJ’s are always really fun and the mashups are pretty wonderful too. Plus at midhnight R.A.I.D. (Random Acts of Irreverant Dance) take the stage for the midnight coreographed dance number. Always a blast.
This particular Bootie also had contests for Prom King, Prom Queen, and best Prom Couple. The crowd voted with screams and cheers and the winner each took home $100.
I will say that this Bootie, for some reason the mash up’s weren’t that spectacular. I was honestly a little bored with them. But then again I haven’t been to Bootie since October and that’s a whole slew of different music to be made. They also did a slow song mash-up once an hour, which would have been great if we had dates but we took it as a water or bathroom break.
If you’re ever looking for something to do on the first and/or third Saturday of the month, head over to the Echoplex and get your rump shakin at Bootie LA.
Every Bootie there is the photog company that takes pictures and they set up a Prom booth this time. They’re called drunk rockers and there set up this time was pretty great. http://www.drunkrockers.com to check out all the Prom pics from the evening. I’ll post ours below.
