Our Heart Aches For Syria Benefit @ Long Center - 3/15/2013
One of the many SXSW events BrooklynVegan had some part in this year, and the most random one, was the "Our Heart Aches For Syria" benefit at the Long Center on the Friday night of SXSW Music. Taking place near and after the Flaming Lips show at Auditorium Shores, locals The Young opened the Omar Souleyman-headlined night to an awkwardly small amount of people in an awkwardly large venue. More people eventually showed, though let's face it, this show should have been at a packed, rowdy 500 capacity space near 6th Street instead of inside a 2500 person theater off the beaten path (those who first conceived this event anticipated a bigger lineup with a bigger sponsor). That said, it was still a great lineup and a fun night, and it was Deradoorian's exclusive SXSW show, and possibly Deer Tick's only SXSW show, and a nice amount of money was raised for those in need. Here are some pictures. More below....
BrooklynVegan is presenting three nighttime shows at SXSW this year, one of which is a special night with Omar Souleman and friends. To quote SXSW:
SXSW is proud to announce an interview with Syrian artist and cult international legend Omar Souleyman on March 15th from 5-6pm in ACC room 16AB. Omar will speak with Daily Dot Editor Austin Powell about the issues surrounding the devastating conflict in his home country, the evolution of the Syrian music landscape, and what the future may hold for himself and artists like him.BrooklynVegan is also throwing a bunch of day parties.
Later that evening Omar will be joined by the amazing Black Lips, Deer Tick and more in a special performance at a Red Cross benefit aptly named Our Heart Aches For Syria. The show takes place at Long Center For The Performing Arts beginning at 9pm on Friday 3/15 after the Flaming Lips Auditorium Shores show. Donations are $10 with all money going to the International Red Cross's Syrian Arab Red Crescent. Please join us for a spectacular evening for a great cause. THIS SHOW IS OPEN TO THE GENERAL PUBLIC

Okkervil River / Diamond Rugs
BrooklynVegan's Hotel Vegan, located at Austin venues Hotel Vegas & Volstead Lounge, ended on Saturday, 3/17/2012, on three stages in partnership with Partisan Records and KF Records, and the new Young One Records who helped us put together the hip hop stage which stage headliner Action Bronson cancelled from last minute from (for medical reasons).
The day, and all four days, ended with special last minute addition Okkervil River who played after Deer Tick/Black Lips/Dead Confederate/Los Lobos super group Diamond Rugs who played after Heartless Bastards (who we already posted one set of pictures of). Other previously posted photo sets from this day include Father John Misty, Field Report, Pond and Emily Wells. Here are the rest of the pics.
More, slightly belated, pictures from all of Saturday, below...

John McCauley of Deer Tick @ Emo's East, 10/25
Deer Tick will be performing on TV tonight (12/14) for Conan O'Brien. Don't forget to tune in or set your DVR! UPDATE: You can now watch a video of the performance below.
Deer Tick, who opened the BrooklynVegan official SXSW showcase at Club DeVille in 2008 and then headlined the BrooklynVegan official SXSW showcase at Club DeVille in 2009, and then played an unofficial BV party at Barbarella during SXSW 2011, was back in Austin in October (OcTICKber?) for their Divine Providence record release show. The album has since made it to #24 on SPIN's top 50 albums list for 2011. They'll be touring in Europe in a few months after ending 2011 in NYC at Brooklyn Bowl on New Year's Eve with Virgin Forest who also played with the band at Emo's.
