On the Road Again!
Miskonduct’s event calendar is filling up fast! In the next month we have three fabulous events that we’re involved in. It’s going to be crazy-busy but equally fun. Here’s the lowdown on here you can find us.
27th – 29th October 2017
The Entrance, Central Coast will be transformed once again into a retro-lovin' guy and gal's wonderland. With one of the biggest hotrod Show ‘n’ Shine’s in NSW (Australia? Quite possibly!) you’re guaranteed to get your fill of fabulous cars. They start rolling in on Friday, roll out for a cruise on Saturday afternoon and then the winners are announced on Sunday!
Flanking the hotrod display is a stack of retro and vintage inspired market stalls with some of the best selections of true vintage and reproduction items you can get your hands on. From 50’s memorabilia, car-enthusiast collectables and retro fashion there is something for everyone. You’ll also find a vast selection of food stalls to keep you well-fed and hydrated throughout the day.
Live entertainment is pumping all weekend long, with two outdoor stages devoted to bringing you the best of Rock n Roll from live acts such as The Rattlesnakes and Bad Luck Kitty, DJ Vinnie and DJ George Galea will be pumping all the classics and the one and only Si Cranstoun will be performing a special set on Sunday afternoon. You’ll also be treated to performances by Sydney’s Swing Katz plus the crowning of the 2017 Miss Pinup Doll Australia on Saturday. Miskonduct Klothing is a proud sponsor of Pinup Doll Australia, and we’ll be hosting a Meet n Greet with the Dolls on Sunday morning from 9.30am, so be sure to head in early on Sunday and visit us at our stall in the Plaza Markets.
All this entertainment is FREE, but if you still haven’t had enough retro revival fun you can book into any number of the ticketed events held at clubs and pubs in the area. The whole town really does get on board for this event.

Sydney Rock n Roll & Alternative Markets
Sunday 26th November 2017
More than just a market, Sydney Rock n Roll & Alternative Markets are the perfect combination of music festival and markets. Held in Manning House at Sydney’s iconic Sydney University, market stalls fill three levels with live music upstairs at Manning Bar and DJ’s outside in the garden.
You’ll find a vast selection of vintage collectables, vinyl, comics and memorabilia, as well as fashion representing just about every alternative sub-culture you can think of. From popular brands, to unique and handmade you’ll need all the time you can manage to take in what’s on offer!
Punters are encouraged to bring their vintage cars and bikes (contact the organizer in advance to book your car park http://rocknrollmarket.com.au/vehicle-displays ) and you can also book into the beginners’ dance class first thing in the morning (for a small fee).

Then there’s the live music. Organiser, Tiffany Palmer, works tirelessly to create unique, fresh lineups for every market, but the Christmas Edition is nothing short of stellar. Sydney Punk Rock icons The Hard Ons share the stage with Rockabilly powerhouse Hanks Jalopy Demons and The Keiron McDonald Combo as well as Indie Rock influencer Kim Salmon. For a cover charge of less than $10 for the day that’s money well spent in my book! Plus, kids under 12 get free entry. That’s right folks, it’s a kid-friendly show! A great opportunity to get the kids into some real music that encourages them to dance to their own tune. How good is that?
In addition to all of the above, we’ll keep the doors open at the Newcastle Boutique, so you can still pop in for your pretty-dress-fix any day of the week! Leah, Kate & I will be only too happy to help you.
‘til next time,
