Sydney's indie popsters The Holidays are set to rock Melbourne's 'burbs at the Red Bull Bedroom Jam’s second round finale event, The Backyard Jam, on Saturday 13th August in Eltham, Victoria.
As we told you a little while back, the Red Bull Bedroom Jam is on a mission to unearth explosive teenage talent that, thus far, has been confined to poster-clad bedrooms across Australia. The Backyard Jam final on the 13th will see four finalists perform a live gig alongside The Holidays. Melbourne-based band Brad & The Pussycats, independent musician Leek & The War Wick Tragedy, pop rock artist Matt Casey and pop punk band CruelToBeKind will battle it out at the Backyard Jam event.
The lucky winner will receive a 5-day all-expenses-paid trip to LA to record in a state-of-the-art recording studio, followed by a national tour of Aus as the support act for an Australian band.
The four finalists have already topped Red Bull Bedroom Jam’s online Buzz Chart with their live webcast performances. Now each band will have to wow the judging panel of music industry bigwigs at the finale taking place in Brad & The Pussycats backyard, as voted by fans on the Backyard Jam Buzz Chart.
