Kulture Klash's third inclination finally came on Saturday, November 16, and to no one's great surprise it was a smashing success.
We could blather on about it, but you'll get your best impression of it by watching the video above, or checking out the pics.
And, if you didn't know it, Kulture Klash is a collaborative celebration of all different forms of art and culture in Charleston. It’s not something that can really be categorized. It’s not only paint on canvas; it’s dance, music, sculpture, physical creativity and participation. And if you want to know more about it, check out our past coverage.
While we're still waiting on a final head count, it's safe to say that at least 2,000 people showed up, trumping past attendance. Inside there was skateboard, canvas and photography art and on the outside there was dancing to the tunes by Lipservice, Rocky Horror and DJ Jake B.
The crowd thoroughly enjoyed themselves, and here’s a word from Charleston personality, Josef Meyers:
I always have fun at Kulture Klash. You know.. Jake's music kept me outside so I didn’t get to enjoy the other things that kulture klash had to offer. I was seduced by the music. And I’m happy no one died. People were going a little crazy… happily no one was injured and everyone had a blast. I feel like lip service made a thousand new fans.
So, if you didn’t get a chance to make it to the Navy Yard at Noisette this time, then you can always go to their 4th manifestation slated for Spring 2009. We'll keep you posted on that.
Update November 18: Charleston City Paper offers up their own video of the event.
Update November 23: Chiming in a bit late, The Post and Courier offers their own-text oriented write-up of the event.
Update November 26: The Charleston City Paper offers up some past attendance numbers, as well as some hints as to next year's KK. Think: Earth Day and more of a fashion focus.
Though, I'm sure they'd only have it be part fashion. If for no other reason than Earth Day is only a month after Charleston Fashion Week.
