The Very West winners Drunk Mums announced for BIGSOUND 2012

Drunk Mums, this year's winners of The Very West competition, were just announced for BIGSOUND 2012 in Brisbane, QLD. The band will headline the Press Club on Thursday, 13 September at 11.40pm.

For the past three years, St. Jerome's Laneway Festival has teamed up with Footscray Community Arts Centre to run The Very West: a competition where local unsigned artists from Melbourne's western suburbs are given the opportunity to kick start their career. This year's prize gave Drunk Mums the opportunity to open Laneway Festival in Melbourne and also perform at Australia's premiere music showcase event, BIGSOUND LIVE.

Each year BIGSOUND LIVE plays host to the next crop of Aussie bands ready to take the country by storm. There will be at least 10 exciting Australian artists who we feel are flying the flag at the forthcoming Laneway Festival 2013. Laneway programmer and co-director Danny Rogers offers his top six bands to watch out for at this year's BIGSOUND LIVE showcases:

Kirin J Callinan
Strange Talk
Yes You
Super Wild Horses
Mosman Alder
