Charleston offers plenty of spook-tacular events around Halloween, but the Sat. Oct. 26 Skinful Halloween party will be probably be the most outrageous of them all, thanks to the scheduled appearance of a very special — and notorious — guest: Flavor Flav. Yes, the Public Enemy hype man and reality TV trainwrecker will be hosting this year’s festivities.
As usual, Skinful will feature an incredible lineup of musical performers— Ozomatli, Dirt Nasty, the Dubplates, Cee Know the Dooblebug, and more. There will also be food trucks, light shows, cirque performers, and burlesque dancers.
This year’s event is being put on by Big Hair Productions, which is run by David Brisacher, a.k.a. “Big Hair Dave” of the Dubplates. Not surprisingly, Big Hair Dave is stoked about the Public Enemy great’s appearance. “Flava Flav is the greatest hype man ever,” he says.
Skinful 2013 will be held at a 70-acre farm located at 7751 Toogoodoo Road, Meggett, S.C., 29449, nearly 30 miles out of town. And this year, there will be onsite parking, but everyone is encouraged to camp for the night; Skinful will also be running a shuttle service to several locations in Charleston. Tickets are $80 adv., $100 after Oct 1. For more information, visit skinfulhalloween.com.
