DJs Mysterious D, Adrian and Paul V brought Bootie LA back to The Echo. This time Party Ben came along from San Francisco to do a special midnight set of mash-ups that turned the crowd inside out! I took over 60 pictures, which you can check out by clicking here.
Two crowd-favorites were "Don't Stop Believin' In Planet Rock" (Journey vs. Afrika Bambaataa) by A Plus D and "Paid For My Doorbell" (Eric B. & Rakim vs. White Stripes) by Party Ben. I might be biased, since these happen to be my favorites too, and I am listening to them even as I type this.
The line was so super long there was a 30 minute wait starting at midnight! Luckily, my friend Chandler, (aka Tauren from Luck Legendary) was already inside and got DJ Adrian and Mysterious D to intervene on my behalf. Next month they're moving it downstairs to The Echoplex which is much larger.
See all the photos on Flickr!
There were a lot more people in costume this time around. Not a requirement, but it sure makes things a lot more fun. So if you come next time, at least wear a bandanna. That last photograph, was one of my favorite moments, Chandler's friend, Manders, singing along to "Don't Stop Believing." She really is holding on to that feeling!
