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.

A Hipster Witch, The Bee Girl and Elwood Blues walk into the woods. Yes, this is the beginning to the best joke you’ve never heard and also a reminder that it’s time to celebrate Skinful Halloween 2012! Each year gets more and more spectacularly fascinating. Just when you think it can’t get any wilder, you turn the corner and find a fire breathing dragon in your path.  Literally. A “Disney World for adults” as noted from the puppet-master, founder and animal whisperer Dr. Brian King, the madness will commence once again at the Brick House Kitchen and the surrounding properties on Folly Road. Costumes are encouraged and required.

Eight stages with over 20 music acts, circus performers, burlesque pole dancing troupe, massive video walls, light shows and more will be present to wow and amaze you and all your costumed brethren. Music by DJ Muggs of Cypress Hill, Chali2na & Cut Chemist from Jurassic 5, Ivan Neville’s Dumpstaphunk and The Dubplates featuring Future Fambo and Zumjay, DJ Logic, ShoNuff, The Royal Tinfoil, Cousin Dan, Holy City Holligans and many other acts will perform throughout the wooded fairyland of madness.

Going on it’s twelfth year, Skinful Halloween will benefit non-profit organizations Keepers of The Wild wildlife rescue to protect abused and neglected captured wildlife and The Tanzania Education Foundation which provides education, nutrition and health programs for a day school in Tanzania.

Shuttles will be running from 6:30 p.m. till 4:30 a.m. to and from Lowes, Gold’s Gym and the Chi Chi’s parking lots, all located on James Island.  Other shuttle locations include Juanita Greenbergs in Mt. Pleasant, Loggerheads on Folly Beach and Fuel in downtown Charleston. Check with your favorite bar and restaurants for shuttle information, as many other locations will help with safe travel to the event. You don’t have to be on your best behavior so let your freak flag fly, but extra security and police will be on hand to ensure your safety to, from and within the event.

No coolers allowed this year, so take advantage of the super VIP tickets starting at $2,000. Super VIP will get you a private cabana, bottle service for up to 10 people, a 20-by-20 tent, personal server and lounge furniture for a freaky tailgate for you and your friends.

Sure to be a night you will never forget. Trick or treat.
