Croft Alley in Melbourne’s CBD is like something out of a dystopian sci-fi movie. Proper disgusting. In other words, it’s the ideal location for a street art festival. ‘Don’t Ban the Can’ and ‘The Croft Institute’ (brilliant hidden bar I can’t recommend enough) joined forces to showcase the best in laneway art to a soundtrack of hip-hop, afro-funk, soul and dub-step. ‘Don’t Ban The Can’, run by Melbourne-based company ‘We Make Stuff Good’ is a mini street festival celebrating Melbourne’s legendary laneways and street art. It’s also a chance to hang out, watch artists’ paint and listen to great music.
With the first episode of ‘An Infinite Summer’ still in the works, I’ve posted a video Carl Allison filmed at the event to get your eyeballs stimulated.
