Drew SintonIt's creepy and it's kooky, mysterious and spooky, it's altogether ookey - it's the Melbourne Bizarre Music Festival.

Taking place next weekend (November 1 and 2) at city club Deviate (14 McKillop Street), the festival will be emceed by Haunted Bookshop owner Drew Sinton.

The Church of Satan member recently celebrated 11 years in the haunted book business, and with Halloween just around the corner, what better time to gather some of the country's musical freaks?

The ghoulish Streetlight Manifesto, No Idea, Dropped at Birth and Death of Art have all jumped on the bill (rumours that they are being paid for their services in pumpkins and candles instead of cash are unfounded), and the weekend will also feature a "spooky cinema" screening the likes of Frankenstein and Freaks.

Sinton will don a top hat and bow tie as his alter ego Ebenezer Schadenfreude (pictured) to host "freaky Sunday", a showcase of comedy, sword swallowing and even tarot readings.

The bang for your buck comes in the form of the three-foot-six Divine Miss Em, billed as "Australia's smallest dancin' diva", a genuine all-singing, all-dancing living doll.

If your dark side is suitably piqued, a weekend ticket will set you back $50 plus booking fee (individual day tickets are also available).
