† FROM DJ PAUL V.
Last night, I got to see one of my new wave hero bands – DEVO – play their seminal 1980 Freedom Of Choice album, live in its entirety. And they were beyond fun and amazing. Before they came on, they played three of their ground-breaking videos from the disc, including their biggest hit, Whip It. And I sat there thinking: ‘This was like so totally subversive for early 80’s MTV’ – yet we all remember that video by heart. So in honor of Devo and club Bootie creators A plus D, it’s a double-whammy of a mashup this week. You get to satiate your desire to pogo around the room to Devo, and do the stanky leg with GS Boyz. Watch just how silly Akron, OH meeting the Dirty South can be in the video, too:

PS to my LA peeps: Speaking of Bootie LA, I’m DJing with A+D this Saturday night, November 7th at The Echoplex. And for the first time ever, it’s ‘Mashup Request Night’ – where you can write down your favorite mashups or artists on our clipboard, and we’ll play your request. Or, you can twitter requests live from the dancefloor to @clubbootie!
