Hands down, the Australian Music Collective‘s annual Aussie BBQ was Friday’s highlight for me, as usual. Besides the free food, the slew of mostly unknown (in the U.S., at least) Australian bands was–and usually is–pretty amazing.
The Hoodoo Gurus were playing the U.S. for the first time in 13 years (I think). I listened to them back in the mid-80s and love Stoneage Romeos so this was a great throwback show for me. They had the place packed as well, which was good to see.
