Saturday, February 23, is SLAM Day, a day where the whole country stops for live music. Musicians and music lovers will come together in the largest simultaneous celebration of live music and small gigs that's ever been held in Australia.

SLAM (Save Live Australia's Music) was born out of the SLAM rally, the largest cultural protest in Australia's history. Some 20,000 people marched in Melbourne to change government policy that incorrectly linked live music to violence.

On February 23 last year, over 150 gigs were held in small venues across the country from Perth to Port Douglas, Tamworth to Tennant Creek, Katherine to Kensington, and with the support of musicians, venues, music fans and the media, the first ever SLAM Day was a massive success.

The website - http://slamrally.org/nationalslamday has details of shows popping up all around the country. Hell, why not add one yourself.
