Scout Notes

If you missed out last year and the year before – you've certainly caught wind of the whispers. Visions of experimental musical performances, ethereal art installations and a damn fine dance party or two have likely been circling your head ever since you first heard mutterings about this annual Goat Farm + Scoutmob spectacle. Well, dear reader, we're here to inform you that this year's All Hallow's Eve celebration is about to leave the other two, lonely and befuddled, in the proverbial dust. Because this time around? We're taking Halloween to the next level – and yes, we're talking atmospherically.

For there's something about a 12-ft astronaut puppet walking among and above the crowd, guiding them through the night, that makes us feel like we've scooted right along the space-time continuum into another world. And it's only the first of many mind-bending art installations and transformational musical performances. A 36-piece marching band dubbed Itchy-O is the crescendo of the event, bringing their particular brand of space-mariachi, lo-fi junk punk to a mind-blowing, in-crowd performance. And they've promised to, "Come in strong and end by blowing the roof off the place, turning it upside down, and shaking all the candy out." If that doesn't get you into the galactic spirit of things, a Navigator Performance Installation and musical performance by Klimchak should do the trick. And CD Howe will set the scene with his lightscapes and quadraphonic sound installation. But the ethereal funk doesn't stop there, friends. And it doesn't stop at The Situation with Sofia XIV, Protect Awesome, Mistermind and Black Box Disco, either. On the contrary. An exclusive, one-night performance by Saïah will grace us with a theatrical weirdness, unparalleled in your average Halloween get-up. Then look to the stars with Justin Rabideau's "The Distance from the Moon" installation, based on the short story of the same name by Italo Calvino, and marvel at his sculptural, spider-al collaboration with Mike "MSIF" Stasny. And because we enjoy pushing the boundaries of physics, The Goat Farm's galaxy-defying transformation will also involve a series of science experiments by MASS Collective.

"But what of the libations?" you ask, rightfully concerned. But you needn't fear, there will be wine-a flowing and the premiere of Jailhouse Brewing's bottled goods (which you will receive two tickets toward) as well as other spirits. Some of Atlanta's best food trucks will be there to celebrate, too – think, Arepa Mia, Good Food Truck (truck, trike and soup cart), Poor Huey's, and Sugar-Coated Radical. And, of course, each merrymaker will receive one free Frozen Pints Craft Beer Ice Creamt, while supplies last. So don your Halloween finery, and make your way to the Goat Farm – though the evening will totally transform the space (emphasis on space) – we promise, it's still in the same spot. Geographically, at least.

Now keep in mind, dear reader, this is late October – so dress appropriately – the show will go on, rain or shine. That being said, there will be warmth a-plenty, so don't you fret. Much of the festivities take place indoors and, well, that flaming, Firebird sculpture by world-renowned metal sculptor Charlie Smith should certainly help.
