What’s with Scout and their annual parties? There are a lot of reasons to get out of the house with your best outfits: anything between celebrations of success to a thirst for good liquor. What’s Scout’s? A birthday celebration, a gathering of friends old and new, and a reason to go home late. It’s a lot of things really, and to be honest, who looks for a reason to party when you’re already in the moment?
But we digress. A little history: Our first was a proper introduction to what Scout was, and is. We called it Scout Valley High and we had the dress code “nine-tease the bomb!” The following year was the Scout House Party, which was like all other house parties (more fun than what you’d expect and a little tough to clean up the day after). Last year’s Scout Summer Camp was our take on taking the comforts of the woods indoors without the creepy campfire stories (it was lit though, “lit” being the perennial descriptor of everything fun at the time).
One thing was sure: what carries the afternoon, when the doors open, to the evening, when the party leaves the hall and spreads out to the streets, and what also makes the memories Instagrammable and the Instagrams memorable, is the vibe. The atmosphere, the mood, the feel. Enter the room and you know what it is.
With that in mind, this year we’re narrowing down on that under the theme of ’80s California and Miami during the summer– taking in a little bit of sun, a little bit of surf, and also a little bit of nostalgia for days we’ve never had. Introducing: the Scout Music Fest, happening at Samsung Hall, SM Aura, this August 5 from 6pm onwards. Listen to your favorite music acts while indulging in a little bit of summer fun. First 500 to buy tickets will get one free drink (kids 18 and above only, though).
Performances by: BP Valenzuela, Autotelic, Jensen & the Flips, IV of Spades, Tandems ’91, Tom’s Story, She’s Only Sixteen, Rjay Ty, Oh, Flamingo!, Jess Connelly x Lustbass, and Farewell Fair Weather.
