Scoutmob + The Goat Farm Arts Center Present: Halloween 2014

This Halloween shall transcend all Halloweens of years past. How exactly? With a celebration as euphoric as it is inimitable. For our fourth year counting we’re teaming up with the Goat Farm Arts Center to bring you the most mystical of celebrations. Complete with a building that transforms into a musical instrument of unparalleled proportions, experimental music at every turn, and a magical, musical monkey chant processional to usher us throughout the bacchanal… you know, the normal stuff.

What To Expect

Scout Notes

We’ve been daydreaming about this Halloween as soon as we took off last year’s costume. And now, as the mercury drops, and the leaves are turning, we’re practically bubbling in anticipation. For those who missed out last year and the year before (maybe even the year before that?) – you've certainly caught wind of the whispers. Visions of experimental musical performances, ethereal art installations and a damn fine dance party or two (not to mention a 12-ft astronaut puppet walking amongst us) have likely been circling your head ever since you first heard mutterings about this annual festivity of fright. And since this year we get to host our celebrations on the actual holiday of Halloween, we’re upping the ante more than ever before. We’re here to tell you, dear reader, that we’ve got your Halloween plans in the proverbial treat bag. Yup, the annual Goat Farm + Scoutmob spectacle is returning with a revelry even more transcendental, spectacular, impassioned and inimitable than ever before. Expect surprises around every corner and fresh music-driven entities entering the bacchanal with every passing minute. Last year’s party may have brought us to the moon and back, but this year its the world around us will help us transcend. What we’re trying to say is – this party’s got a life of its own.

Our titan amidst the festivities? None other than Atlanta’s own Puddles Pity Party You may be familiar with the giant clown’s smooth Baritone croonings from his viral interpretation of Lorde’s Royals, but please know the majesty of his repertoire is not limited to top 40 hits. (Though those are also equally pleasing to the ear.) He will croon us and open our hearts for the second crowning point of the jamboree – which we will be led to by Tjak Atlan in a percussive and wistful Hallow’s Eve procession. The group will circularly weave amongst us as they perform several cycles of a traditional Balinese monkey chant, ripe with fervor and a hint of madness, leading us to the original piece of musical architecture prepared for us just for this evening by the masterminds of New Orleans Airlift and their partners in crime – Sonic Generator’s Executive Director Jason Freeman, George Long, Justin Rabideau, Andy Pruett, conductor Ben Coleman and a talented group of architecture, human-computer interaction, and music students from the Georgia Institute of Technology. Yup, they’ll have completely transformed a major portion of the Goat Farm into a completely immersive structure, which will come to life before our eyes to stage a musical opus never before heard by human ears.

And of course, that’s only a few of the numerous mind-bending art installations and transformational musical performances that will be orchestrated throughout the evening. The talented folks of NYC-based Video Meth Lab will be offering up their own original brand of ethereal and haunting digital displays to bring you a infinite dance party. If that doesn’t get you into the spirit, musical performances from sister duo Prince Rama, Rex Hussmann, BØATING, art installations by David Baerwalde and Alex Martinez, and a theatre installation from Jungol will assuredly do the trick. Oh, and of course no party would be complete without a modular, gigantic puppet from Ninja Puppet Productions mingling throughout the crowds. (Pro-tip: We highly suggest you get to the party fashionably early this year folks, as the party will be evolving throughout the evening. Arrive post 9:30 p.m., and you run a high risk of missing out on something big.)

"But what of the libations?" you ask, rightfully concerned. But you needn't fear, with Terrapin in our corner, we’ve gotcha covered. And some of Atlanta’s best food trucks, including Pallookaville, Good Food Truck, Simply Seoul Food, Dough Re Mi Cookies and Pull Espresso Bar will be in the mix as well, offering us victuals to aid us in our celebration.

Now keep in mind, dear reader, this is late October – so dress appropriately – the show will go on, rain or shine. The performance from New Orleans Airlift will take place outdoors, of course – as the structure they’ve built is itself will be performing. That being said, there will be warmth a-plenty, so don't you fret. The bulk of the festivities take place indoors and, well, a flaming sculpture, “The Teetering Cusps of Infanity” by world-renowned metal sculptor Charlie Smith should certainly help.
