The first BrooklynVegan Swan Dive/Barbarella Austin Day Party lineup announcement is here! (this is the first of three BV day parties happening at these connecting venues, but just one of nine total BV events.)

This one happens Friday, March 18th from noon-6pm, is co-presented by KF Records (Knitting Factory) and Partisan Records, and features an exclusive Austin day party set by Middle Brother (aka Taylor Goldsmith of Dawes, John McCauley of Deer Tick, and Matthew Vasquez of Delta Spirit). If you want to catch them though, you better get there early because the entire lineup is ridiculous and 100% free, and it looks like this.....

12:00 PM JBM
12:30 PM BOBBY
01:15 PM Holy Sons
02:00 PM Dolorean
03:00 PM John Grant featuring Midlake
04:00 PM Wye Oak
05:00 PM J Mascis

STAGE 2 (Barbarella Patio)
12:00 PM David Wax Museum

02:00 PM Jason Isbell & the 400 Unit
03:00 PM Deer Tick featuring Jonny Corndawg
04:00 PM Old 97's
05:00 PM Middle Brother

STAGE 3 (Barbarella Inside)
12:15 PM AgesandAges

02:30 PM Shilpa Ray & Her Happy Hookers
03:15 PM Vetiver
04:00 PM Oberhofer
05:00 PM The Dodos
I'm already exhausted (and we have three more similar lineups still TBA).

Note: We have Dolorean who is not to be confused with Delorean, yes that is Midlake up there backing the amazing John Grant, Jason Isbell will stick around to play with Middle Brother (like he did on their record), and yes Jonny Corndawg will be in the house.

I'm also happy to point out that, though everyone will sound great already, they are going to sound even better thanks to our official microphone sponsor Line 6, not to mention due to the help of the Korg keyboards, and Vox & Blackstar amps that we'll have on hand - all generous and much-appreciated BrooklynVegan show sponsors.

Also Note:

  • FREE Blublocker sunglasses to first 50 people in the door!
  • there will be FREE vegan Izzoz breakfast tacos while supplies last!
  • we'll have loads of FREE snacks courtesy of Sensible Portions!
  • we'll keep you hydrated with FREE Honest Tea!
  • you can keep your energy levels high with FREE Raw Revolution bars!
  • FREE Tierras organic tequila cocktails while supplies last!
  • more FREE food & DRINK details TBA!
  • and there will be awesome giveaways from Partisan & KF Records
    throughout the day!
Thanks also goes out to our sponsor ASCAP, everyone else that helped make this happen, and Zach Jaeger of Tonally Dude for creating the sweet poster you see (with a bunch of videos) below....

OK. If anyone can find something to bitch about with this insane line up, kill yourself and spare the world your idiocy. I don't even like half of these bands but realize that this is absolutely epic.

B.V. Can you get a lineup like this for CMJ? I like this lineup way more than the stuff that you have at CMJ.
Not that the CMJ lineups you have are bad, but they tend to lean more towards "potential next big thing/flash in the pan" bands then the established great names you have here.
Old 97's are one of my favorite live bands ever.

"B.V. Can you get a lineup like this for CMJ?"

I think the problem is BV has less to work with at CMJ. so many bands go to SXSW. So few come to CMJ anymore.

Yeah, not too many classic or older bands do CMJ anymore, while plenty still make it to SXSW. Way less established bands to work with at CMJ, which sucks.

It's in Texas. Who cares? The only people who will attend are tacky networking types who hand out their business card to everyone. Sponsored by Sparks! I'm embarrassed for everyone involved.

Nice lineup. Which is the accurate place and time for Dolorean? Swan Dive at 2pm per your post or Barbarella patio at 1pm per your poster?

"Which is the accurate place and time for Dolorean? Swan Dive at 2pm per your post or Barbarella patio at 1pm per your poster?"

The poster is wrong, but will be updated soon. We had to change the times right after I posted this. 2pm is correct for Dolorean.

and thanks everyone!

Why so angry? What's wrong with seeing music in Texas? Have you ever been to Austin? Were you beat up by "tacky" people?

That is great lineup! I am sure all have fun!
