Australian bands at SXSW

No official word yet on who will be performing at the BEST SXSW DAY PARTY (see the #1 highlight of 2007 SXSW for me), the Aussie BBQ (scheduled for Friday, March 14) but a little birdie passed along some names of some Australian bands that may very well be crossing the ocean for an appearance at SXSW. Start speculating now about which of these bands will be part of the BBQ and which will be in regular SXSW nightly showcases.

Once we’ve got word about who will be playing the Aussie BBQ we’ll let you know how you can RSVP.

    Operator Please’s MySpace page shows dates in Australia during SXSW week. I was kind of hoping to see them as well.
