Coming soon to CMW: The Aussie BBQ & Sound Gallery


For 2015 Canadian Music Week has selected Australia as a spotlight country, and worked in collaboration with Sounds Australia to bring 2 huge events to the infamous festival.  First up is the Aussie BBQ which takes place at two legendary venues along Queen Street West on Friday May 8th.  The Rivoli and The Horseshoe Tavern play host to 17 acts, and offers up a specially designed menu of Australian barbecue.  The event kicks off at noon and runs until 6 pm:

Saturday May 9th brings the Sound Gallery to the Horseshoe Tavern.  The event runs from 12-5:30 pm and features 10 of Australia's finest singer songwriters.  This is just one of the many ways in which Sounds Australia works with artists to help establish strong foundations in their careers.  The organization works at both a local and international level, and their participation in CMW is just one aspect of their contribution to the international music scene.  Both of these events are simply must sees, and are sure to give those in attendance a glimpse at some brilliant talents who are on the cusp of major breakthroughs in terms of North American audiences.
