For the past eight years Stage Mothers (2 music fans from Melbourne) have been putting on showcases for Australian musicians traveling to the USA who are trying to break beyond the local scene. These shows are called "The Aussie BBQ" and now for the first time they have decided to put on a couple of local shows, one in Melbourne and one in Sydney.

The Aussie BBQ Melbourne features sets by Paul Dempsey, Oh Mercy, The Wagons, Crayon Fields, Boat People, Pets With Pets, Summer Cats and more!

In keeping with tradition there will also be a free BBQ and giveaways courtesy of Elwood Jeans.
