Michale Graves (ex-lead singer of Horror Punk Legends, The Misfits) Concert Tour 2016

Michale Graves is currently on tour in support of this latest release “When Worlds Collide“.
The North American Tour is making a stop in Toronto on June 9th.

Ok, I’m probably dating myself but I grew up on the Michale Graves era Misfits. Don’t get me wrong, I like the Danzig and other eras too, but the Michale Graves era is what is nostalgic to me. I remember being in grade school and setting my VCR to record MuchMusic’s LOUD every Friday at midnight. LOUD was a television program on the music channel that featured music videos from “heavier” bands that were not played during the regular music video rotation. I remember recording the show was a “big deal” for me. I’d call and get my mom to do it if I was sleeping over at a friend’s house. I needed to have all the videos on VCR tape to watch them over and over again (FYI This is before YouTube lol) . As well, if I couldn’t watch it that night, it would be the first thing I did on Saturday morning.

One Saturday as I played the tape I saw the video for “Dig Up Her Bones” by the Misfits:

This was my first introduction to legendary Horror Punk band the Misfits. Michale Graves did lead vocals on two full-length Misfits Albums, American Psycho and Famous Monsters. He also did backup vocals on the 1999 single Monster Mash and Cuts from the Crypt.

By the time I was old enough to start attending concerts, Graves was out of the band and a new Misfits line-up was in. When Michale Graves comes to Toronto on June 9th, 2016 it will be my first time seeing Misfits songs off the albums American Psycho and Famous Monsters performed by him.

Horror Punk Fashion – The Cleaver Clutch Bag by Kreepsville 666

Like Horror Punk Fashion? The best place for “original scare wear” is http://store.kreepsville666.com/. They have the some of the best items for Punk Fashion. Sometimes while I am on their website, I have a very “what came first/the chicken or egg?” type experience as many of their original designs are mimicked elsewhere. For example, a bought a Cleaver purse that I found on eBay back in 2013. I thought it was so cute and unique, but when I got it there was clearly something “off”. I later found out it was a rip off of a Kreepsville design!

(or view on Youtube)

The copyright for the Cleaver Clutch Bag is owned by Kreepsville. The original was designed by Kreepsville designer/owner Ash Ghoulmore.

Horror Punk Cleaver Clutch Bag by Kreepsville 666

This Kreepsville 666 vinyl Cleaver Clutch Bag, has a red satin style kreepsville 666 lining, with zip coin pocket and card pocket, zip closure, and is approx 37cm(w) x 18cm(h) x 3cm(d).

Like music, it is always better to buy from the original source. When independent designers first start out, it is very similar to musicians, or any other type of art, where they are working for little/no money. I see many independent designers struggle at first. If you want great art to be created, then you need to support the artists.
After discovering the http://store.kreepsville666.com/ site I have purchased many things from hair accessories, to purses and clothing.

Their spooky accessories add a bit of flare to any outfit

My favourite product is their comfy t-shirt dresses. They are one of my favourite things to wear in the summer because they are comfortable and cool. They even have an official Elvira line. Their products are a unique take on the horror punk look. Perfect for any Punkabilly/Psychobilly lover. Here is a Pinterest board of some of my favs:
