Skinful Halloween

Posted in Sales & Events with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 24, 2013 by Lowcountry Boil

993429_10151996702142780_1635479264_nI initially wrote about Skinful Halloween awhile back but as the location kept changing, I decided to rewrite the feature with the final details. My vet and friend, Dr. Brian King, has put on this party for 13 years and it is by far one of the best parties in Charleston. This year the event and organizers need the support of the fans as costs to put on this party has escalated after permitting issues in Hollywood, then an Edisto Plantation got pulled, followed by issues from the city and Music Farm backing out. If you have ever hosted an event, then you know what is involved in overhead for renting a venue, permits, vendors, musical talent, tents, security, medical, set ups and so much more. So here are the details….

Skinful Halloween 2013 hosted by Flavor Flav will be held on October 26th 2013 at Brick House Kitchen from 2pm-2am. Music will be provided by Ozomatli, Dirt Nasty, Blowfly, The Dubplates and more plus DJs, circus acts, burlesque and dance, art, video mapping, a silent disco, massive laser light show and the sickest lighting and sound set-up in the Southeast. They will be limiting the amount of guests and keeping the party contained inside the fenced in area. Coolers are welcome. The party will start at 2pm and will abide by the 11pm noise ordinance. To keep the buzz going, guest can enjoy a silent disco from 11pm till 2am. (I did this after Widespread Panic in Mexico a few years back and it is a nice alternative to keep the party going.)

Music Line Up:
3:00pm-5pm: The Dubplates with Zumjay
5:15pm-6:30pm: Cee Know The Doodlebug from The Digable Planets and The CFO Band
6:45pm till 7:45pm: Blowfly
8pm till 9:45pm: Ozomatli
10pm till 11pm: Dirt Nasty

Silent Disco Schedule:
11pm till 12am on Channel A: Jake B vs KlipArt or Channel B: FullHass
12am till 1am  on Channel A: DJ Fred Krugrrr or Channel B: Circe and Rage United
1am till 2am on Channel A: MJ12 or Channel B: DJ Magnetik

There will be some on-site parking plus shuttles, cabs and limos companies running special rates. Even though this a normal weekend concert at Brick House Kitchen, there will be Sheriffs and Private Security. There will also be EMTs on site in case of emergencies.

While this is a rockin’ night, it also benefits the Tanzania Education Foundation and Keepers of the Wild.

Triple Album Release Show at Charleston Music Hall

Posted in Sales & Events with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on October 7, 2013 by Lowcountry Boil

1274586_10201568259555662_1845057862_oCharleston Music Hall is proud to announce a triple album release show from three of Charleston’s hardest working musicians, Guilt Ridden Troubadour, Gaslight Street, and Ryan Bonner on October 12 at the Charleston Music Hall. Guilt Ridden Troubadour will be releasing “Gone,” Gaslight Street will be releasing “Heavy Wind,’ and Ryan Bonner will be releasing “Only When It’s Burning”. Everyone who buys a ticket online will receive a free song from each of the albums. Doors open at 7:00 pm and the concert will begin at 8:00. Advanced tickets are on sale at eTix.

Guilt Ridden Troubadour’s sound is more alt-country and Americana and the music is more lyrically-driven while still bringing the Southern rock edge. Gaslight Street’s soul music will never go out of style as it melds pure Southern rock with charismatic vocals, traipsing the boundaries of blues and funk. Ryan Bonner has a thoughtful-nuanced attention to detail as his most serious songs content wise have the most whimsical music attached to it and the songs where the melody is the most relaxed tend to be the most personal and in-depth.
