UPDATE, 10/18/13: The sage continues. The event has been moved to the Brick House Kitchen.
UPDATE, 10/14/13: Skinful will now be held at the Music Farm. This has lead to plenty of changes.
UPDATE, 10/11/13: The Charleston City Paper is reporting that Skinful is currently homeless. Both previously proposed locations have been shot down due to local opposition. A new venue should be announced on Monday.
UPDATE, 9/18/13: Early Bird Tickets for Skinful are now on sale. They will be available until October 1st. Tickets are $80, which is a $20 savings on the regular price.
Back on August 1st, Holy City Sinner passed along word that this year's Skinful Halloween event would be held on October 26th, but little else was known about the celebration. That has now changed as the event's organizers have made two huge announcements.
First, this year's party will be hosted by Public Enemy rapper and reality TV show star Flava Flav. Yeeeeeeaaaaaa booooi!
Secondly, the event will not be held at the Brick House Kitchen as it has been in the past, but instead will take place
on a 70 acre farm that is 30 minutes south of the Holy City. on a site to be determined later. The official Facebook page says there will be plenty of room for parking and camping.
Those are two pretty interesting developments. The addition of Flava Flav is clearly going to lead to an epic night. For better or worse, Flav will make the night memorable.
Rumors were floating around that this year's party would be held downtown, but that obviously didn't pan out. It will be interesting to see what people think about the distance from Charleston and the choice of venue. Personally, I think the extra space will be awesome, especially once the Skinful team decks out the venue with their trippy Halloween decorations.
Also of note, the Facebook page announced that former MTV VJ and porn star (yes, really) Simon Rex will be performing at the party under his comedian/rapper moniker Dirt Nasty.
Other confirmed acts include Ozomatli, Blowfly, The Dubplates with Future Fambo and Zumjay, Cee Know the Doodlebug of the Digable Planets, The CFO band, Shonuff, DJ Trail Mix and Woodgrain, I 1, Milandro Soul, Masker Band, DJ United, Circe & Rage United, DJ Full Hass, Worship the Sky, Fuze, DJ Magentic, MJ12, and DJ JUDE.
