Kulture Klash is back for its third incarnation on Saturday, November 15. People have been -- as they put it -- literally begging for it. Last time they had 1,300 folks show up and they expect more this time around.

And I'll let them tell you about the rest of it in their own words:
The event is being co-produced by 4 local entities - artist Scott Debus, Charleston’s Most Unique, B’ZAR and ART Magazine.

Kulture Klash’s purpose is to bring all kinds of kultures together by producing an exciting mixed media event, comprised of an eclectic mixture of well-known and unknown artists, live art demonstrations, live performance art pieces, DJs, bands, and much more. But most of all, this event is about bringing together people from very different backgrounds, respecting each other’s artforms, and feeling inspired by the immense amount of energy that a diverse group like this can generate.

And, it’s a kick-ass party.

Kulture Klash 3 will feature a massive art show of over 40 different artists displayed throughout 10 Storehouse Row in the Navy yard at Noisette. In addition to the regular massive art show, we have a special section dedicated to Custom Painted Skateboard Decks which will be available for purchase. Provided by Earth, these are real decks that can be used to skate or on simply displayed on the wall as a work of art. There will be over 50 of these created by a wide variety of artists. We will also have limited edition print-on-demand Sharpie Tees which will be available on November 15 only. Artists Kevin Taylor, Julio Cotto, Nathan Durfee, Johnny Pundt, Scott Debus, and Wolfkid will create drawings using black markers to be printed on vintage style t-shirts. Attendees will be able to pick the artist they love and the shirt size, and their wearable works of art will be printed by Vapor Apparel right before their eyes. We will also have a variety of live art demonstrations taking place throughout the evening.

Earth will also provide a Mobile Skate Park where chosen skaters will do their thing and everyone will be able to watch their tricks in awe. Street Level Labs will do some amazing high tech laser projections that the audience will be able to interact with and participate in creating. An aerial acrobatic troupe from Asheville will dazzle us in the air, a local glassblower will demonstrate his use of the torch, photo booth by Walter Pickney… and the list goes on.

We will have music from DJ Jake B, Lip Service and Rocky Horror so plan on getting down on the dance floor, whether you’re breakdancing, free-styling or just doing your own thing. There will be food available from Fuel and The Sprout Cafe, beer from Magic Hat, wine from Social Wine Bar, and of course, tons of RedBull.

Kulture Klash is truly a unique event, representing Charleston’s diverse community. Venture out to the Old Navy Yard at Noisette in North Charleston and experience the history as well as the future plans for this incredible location. To prevent drunk driving, the Lowcountry Environmental Education Program (LEEP) will be shuttling people back and forth from downtown to 10 Storehouse for only $10 per person each way. Shuttles will leave John Street every hour starting at 9pm, and will return riders downtown on the half hour mark.

Event and shuttle tickets for Kulture Klash are only $10 each and can be purchased with cash in advance downtown at B’Zar or Suite Sole or with a card online at etix.com. Tickets will also be available the night of, but we encourage people to purchase tickets in advance so they’re not stuck waiting in line. Those over 21 have the option to purchase a drink ticket for $20 the night of, for unlimited beer and wine. So, for only $40 dollars, you can get a shuttle ride, get in and view art and dance, and drink all night at the baddest party of the year!!!
