Hawthorn art gallery/shop/curio haven Kustom Lane are having an Art sale this weekend.  That seems as good a reason as any to profile this mighty unique location, which brings together hotrods, tikis, lounge and gorelesque art,  50s horror schlock and more under one roof.  Kustom Lane is a paen to all things kitschtastic, with an emphasis on rockabilly, psychobilly, horror and burlesque motifs.

They display work by local artists centred around these themes, and sell tikis, have gigs and hotrod related exhibitions… and much more.

Why not make this weekend your excuse to get down to Kustom Lane in Hawthorn and find out more?  Oh and they also have an online art store.

Melbourne Horror Film Society

September 28, 2010

Better late than never, is every fiend’s cry as they hunt for that last brain/victim/rat/virgin before the dawn.  And so say I, bumping into the spooky Melbourne Horror Film Society so late in 2010′s  shadow.

But there are still films to be seen at 1000 pound bend before the year is out, and a perfectly meritorious idea to get ghoulish in long spring nights.  They have membership details at their website, and a programme of films for 2010.

They also have a facebook page.

Goretastic times ahead!
