Don your best modern-day-meets-Victorian attire and come (after)party with us at the Goat Farm, Friday, May 4th, with Blair Crimmins & the Hookers, Dames Aflame, and more. Then witness the magic of theater with a ticket to one of Georgia Shakespeare's summer shows.
For those of you who have experienced a party at The Goat Farm, you know how epic and other-worldly an event here can be. The space in and of itself feels like a living, breathing theatre production. And no night more so than on May 4th, when Georgia Shakespeare will take their high-falutin’ benefit gala to the grounds of the Goat Farm. You know, to shake things up a bit. The main act of the evening will be one for the books: Atlanta’s most creative stars in the worlds of food, art, and design will share their gifts with the Goodson Yard as their stage. Adding even more color to the evening is the chosen theme: an evening fit for Oscar Wilde. Not only is it all in support one of the region’s most impressive arts organizations, but it's going to be one damn good party. Besides, we always like a good excuse to don a costume.
Since we happen to know a thing or two about epic parties at the Goat Farm , we figured we'd contribute to the festivities after the dinner plates are done, and everyone is ready to loosen their ties and cut a farmyard rug. In other words: we're opening the doors to all of you for the afterparty.
The Oscar Wilde-ish acts we tapped for this occasion: Dames Aflame in all their burlesque glory, Blair Crimmins &The Hookers providing the live, boot-stomping soundtrack, and Imperial Opa pulling all kinds of “Wilde” circus stunts. All around the Goat Farm, Victorian-era characters (including Oscar Wilde himself... er, kind of) will roam around, making this night at the farm feel like it really came from a modern-day Picture of Dorian Gray. With food trucks there to keep you satisfied (of course).
Your Scoutmob admission gets you two drinks at the after party, along with the exclusive chance to mingle with this motley crew of Atlanta movers and shakers. We suggest you come "dressed theatrically,” which means top hats and fishnets, feather tutus and denim corsets. Whatever makes you think of the shabby glamour of modern-day Shakespeare, or Sir Wilde, or well, the Goat Farm in general.
Once the evening is said and done, you’ll receive a parting gift of one ticket to see one of Georgia Shakespeare’s summer productions. You know, to reminisce over the good times.
As the great Mr. Wilde once said, “Illusion is the first of all pleasures.” And this, Scoutmob friends, will be a spectacle of pleasures that all of Atlanta will be talking about.

If you need a dramatic 'do for the big event, here's a hot tip: Vis A Vis The Salon is doing a special "Wilde Hair" promotion: Get your appropriate hair for the occasion (dramatic blow out, dip dye, great big updo, just as a few examples) and a portion of the proceeds go to Georgia Shake.
Make an appointment for party hair on May 4th or a couple days before. Gorgeous party hair... for a good cause!
