Future of the Left at HotelVegan 2012 (more by Tim Griffin)
Future of the Left have made a wrong right again. Though the band planned to bypass Austin on their upcoming tour with Andrew Jackson Jihad but, luckily, FoTL have added a headline show instead as part of a string of similar dates. Austin gets the look on November 20 at Red 7. Ticketing info is forthcoming.

Future of the Left @ Hotel Vegan (more by Tim Griffin)
After King Tuff (read more about it at BrooklynVegan), my other top act of SXSW 2012 has to be Mikal Cronin. The Bay-area rocker played with a four-piece band, with Ty Segall on lead guitar at both of the two shows I saw: Friday night at Beerland and Saturday afternoon at Trailer Space Records (where Bill also caught the set). The tunes off his great self-titled record sounded poppy and sweet with the right amount of pissed-off swagger, and Ty shredding on guitar definitely helped.

We're already covered this day pretty thoroughly HERE (on BrooklynVegan) and HERE (on BV Chicago), but here are some remaining pictures of some of the artists who played on the first of four days of Hotel Vegan 2012, from two of our photographers who were on hand. More below....
UPDATE: And here is the entire Wednesday lineup
Future of the Left
It's a tradition. For the past three years I, "BBG", have taken over a stage on Wednesday during SXSW. In 2008 it was with The Bronx, Trash Talk, Annihilation Time, Young Widows, and more. In 2009 we welcomed Torche, Salome, Dark Castle, Landmine Marathon and others. Last year was with Kylesa, Deafheaven, Ken Mode and more. This year I decided to go in a different direction but keep a touch of the dark side and most importantly, keep it interesting.
As you might know by now, this year, in addition to all the other stuff we have going on, BrooklynVegan is taking over ALL THREE STAGES at connecting Austin venues Hotel Vegas & Volstead for FOUR DAYS STRAIGHT. There's a big outdoor stage, and smaller stages inside Hotel Vegas & Volstead. Collectively we're calling the four day long party "Hotel Vegan" (located at 1500 E. 6th St, Austin, TX).
I was in charge of the inside stage at Hotel Vegas on 3/14. Get there early Wednesday to see:
Wed, March 14, 2012 - BBG stage @ Hotel VeganThat's a day with very little metal, but definitely an eclectic lineup designed to showcase everything from sunny pop to goth-influenced rock and beats to bouncy punk to post-punk to pensive black metal. I can't wait until Wednesday!
