A perfect romp that promises to lift the roof in the silliest ways imaginable.</p> Wed, 21 Jun 2017 16:20:29 +1000 http://artmusicdesignbarossa.org.au/events/the-popular-mechanics/?date=2017-09-22 SA Spring Garden Festival - Mt Pleasant http://artmusicdesignbarossa.org.au/events/new-event-9/?date=2017-09-23 <p>The Spring festival will be supported by the Mt.
