Founded in 2004, BrooklynVegan is an independent, NYC-centric, multi-genre, mostly-music blog that focuses on international music news, album and live show reviews, pictures, festivals, tour dates, gossip, tips, song and album streams, videos, industry and tech news, special events and much more. Non-music stuff finds its way on to our pages as well including comedy, TV, movies and burlesque, and every post comes with an open exchange of ideas via the public commenting system and social media. We also produce a lot of live events, and have a radio show on SiriusXMU.
BV AUSTIN & BV CHICAGO
Though international in scope, there’s no doubt that BrooklynVegan is very NYC focused. With that in mind, we expanded with city specific sites in Chicago and Austin (home of our annual SXSW shows, not to mention lots of great music all year round).
