There have been a lot of Australian acts on tour in North America lately and if you wished there were more — like, a whole lot more — and you’ll be in NYC during CMJ, you’re in luck, with over 30 bands and artists from Down Under playing the fest. Most of them you can see all in one place on one day at the annual Aussie BBQ which happens this year at The Delancey on October 25. It’s a free show and bands include Luluc, Dune Rats, Bad//Dreems and about 27 other acts. You can check out a sampler featuring a song from each artist playing the Aussie BBQ, and well as the full schedule, below.

Brisbane’s Dune Rats, who have gone from a duo to a trio in the last year, released their debut album over the summer. It’s punky, party-friendly pop and you can stream it in full below. They’ve got a total of five CMJ shows, as of this post, while here:

Oct 21 @ Glasslands (NIGHT)
Oct 24 @ Pianos (5:30 PM) | Planetary Party FREE
Oct 24 @ Baby’s All Right (NIGHT) |Panache CMJ Showcase at Baby’s All Right New York, NY
Oct 25 @ Cake Shop (3:50 PM) | PANACHE/FLAVORPILL party
Oct 25 @ The Delancey (7:20 PM) | AUSSIE BBQ

The 10/21 Glasslands show is with Wampire, Cymbals, Spires and Casual Sex and tickets are on sale now. All Dune Rats dates are listed below.

Melbourne/Brooklyn duo Luluc put out Passerby over the summer on Sub Pop and you can stream that in full via Rdio. And if you like their album, there are a lot of bands playing the Aussie BBQ who fit in a similar indie-folkpop style. In addition to the BBQ, Luluc are playing the Sub Pop CMJ showcase at Knitting Factory on October 23 (tickets) and before that will open for J Mascis at Bowery Ballroom on October 17 (sold out). All Luluc dates are listed below.

Adelaide’s Bad//Dreems make guitar pop that skews a little more towards Aussie rock legends Hoodoo Gurus, with big choruses and and ringing guitars. The band have released a string of singles and EPs (no album yet) and you can stream some of those below. Bad//Dreems play four CMJ shows:

Oct 23 @ Drom (early evening, FREE)
Oct 23 @ Pianos New York, NY (12:30 AM, FREE) | Southern Exposure showcase
Oct 24 @ Pianos (2:10 PM, FREE) | Planetary CMJ Party
