A little birdy told me that one of Melbourne’s popular and renowned street artists – Mishap – is putting on an outdoor event to raise funds. It’s for a good cause as her dog Dilla is in need of cruciate ligament therapy for both of his hind legs. He’s hardly going to pay for that in dog biscuits now, is he?
So enter Melbourne’s charitable niche beats, graffiti and event crews, who are all basically joined at the hip. They’ll be helping Mishap put on a 12-hour outdoor spectacular in Preston’s park bushland from midday until midnight on Saturday.
Live acts, MCing, DJing of multiple genres, live graffing on a 70 metre wall, light installations by Hexananigans, and the kick-ass bass of badman sound system Rogue Magnetic Sound. What more could you want? All other money raised outside of Dilla will be donated to the Lentil As Anything Urban Garden Collective, which are putting up a brand-new space in Preston for the community.
Get down for this one, there’s no better cause this month.
