Aussie BBQ Documentary on BigPond Music

As you know we recently sponsored the Aussie BBQ/SXSW, which saw over 60 Aussie bands hit the USA and Canada to showcase their talent. Stage Mothers, the gurus behind the tour have been working hard alongside BigPond Music to bring you an insightful and action filled documentary into the crazy world of a music tour.

With close to 60 acts on the road this year it was the biggest contingent of Australian acts to tour through North America at the one time, all trying to establish global success stories. The Aussie BBQ 2011 (IDKWBWD) features interviews and behind the scenes from artists such as The Jezabels, Little Red, Cloud Control, Washington, Boy & Bear, Dan Brodie and a whole lot more as they talk you through how it really is on the road.

The Aussie BBQ 2011 (I don’t know why, but we do...) will premiere on BigPond T-Box and TV on the 29th May during ‘The Grit’ Their 100 Music program on Sunday nights.

To coincide with this year’s tour Stage Mothers have also released a digital only compilation record inventively titled “The Aussie BBQ Tour 2011” which is available through Big Pond music and other online outlets, featuring a selection of 15 great Australian tracks by artists including; The Jezabels, Sampology, Blue King Brown, Hungry Kids Of Hungary and Wagons.

Stage Mothers and Sounds Australia have also just played in the UK with 3 Aussie BBQ shows including The Great Escape (Saturday 14th May, @ Digital 12 – 4pm) and Liverpool Sound City (Saturday 22nd May @ Heebie Jeebies) and The Aussie BBQ London (Sunday 15th May @ Cargo 2pm – 11pm) featuring; The Jezabels, Luluc, Seekae, The Touch, Dan Parsons, Little Red, Our Mountain and many more.

The documentary will be available to view over here at Big Pond, and we will also post it here for you to catch!
