Jim James @ Stubb's - 5/6/2013

My Morning Jacket frontman Jim James brought his tour in support of his new solo LP, Regions of Light and Sound of God, to Austin for a show at Stubb's on May 6. For his pre-encore set, he relied entirely on that new album, and then during the encore, he played material from his other projects, including MMJ, Monsters of Folk, and New Multitudes. Support at the show came from his tourmate, Canadian singer/songwriter Cold Specks.

More pictures of both artists and Jim's setlist below...

BV Free Day Show - Thursday @ Hotel Vegas on 3/15/2012

BrooklynVegan's Hotel Vegan, located at Austin venues Hotel Vegas & Volstead Lounge, began at noon back on Thursday, 3/15/2012, on three stages in partnership with M For Montreal. One of those stages was the BV Austin stage which you already saw a full set of pictures from. Here are some more from all the stages.

Like on Friday and all four days, we served complimentary HobNob Wines. We also proudly passed out Sailor Jerry drinks.

Special thanks to Supercuts who were giving out free haircuts all day and to our official backline providers Vox, Blackstar and Korg, and thank you to ASCAP, and to NadaMoo for supplying free vegan treats, and to Honest Tea for the tea.

Bill talked about a lot of this day,. The full set of pictures, slightly beleated, from the entire SXSW Thursday at Hotel Vegan, below...

Canadian rock band Plants & Animals announced an April tour, and though it doesn't have any Austin dates on it, they will be here for SXSW (a festival they are no strangers to). Listen to a track from their new album The End of That (due February 28 via Secret City Records) at BrooklynVegan.

Canadian rock band (the more melodic folk kind) Great Lake Swimmers announced a May tour with Cold Specks that has them inside Stubb's on May 23 (one day after they play Prophet Bar in Dallas). Tickets for the Austin show go on sale Friday. The tour doesn't mention it, but maybe Great Lake Swimmers will be here for SXSW too. Listen to one of their new songs at BrooklynVegan.

NYC bands School of Seven Bells and Exitmusic just announced a tour that will keep them in Texas for at least four days. Their current three-show schedule looks like this:

04/11 - Houston, TX Fitzgerald's
04/13 - Austin, TX The Mohawk
04/14 - Fort Worth, TX Modern Art Museum
Tickets for the Mohawk show (postter above) are on sale. Listen to a new SoSB song at BrooklynVegan.

Meanwhile the Mohawk hosts a show with Graveyard TONIGHT (1/25) and we're giving away a pair of tickets.
