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...

Glen Hansard

As you may have heard:

"Eddie Vedder has announced the postponement of his 15-city U.S. solo tour today due to temporary nerve damage in his right arm, the result of a back injury sustained earlier this year.

Pearl Jam manager Kelly Curtis explains, "After having worked aggressively with doctors and physical therapists for the last eight weeks to repair the damage, the intensity of the injury and time needed to heal has made it impossible to play the shows as scheduled. There was hope up until the last minute that the treatments would be successful. Sincerest apologies go out to those who have made plans and bought tickets. Eddie is frustrated beyond measure, but remains positive that come this summer all will be back in good form."

All postponed dates will be rescheduled for November and December 2012. Tickets will be honored for rescheduled dates. Refunds will be available upon request through the point-of-purchase. Fan Club members with Ten Club pre-sale ticket will receive an email regarding proper refund procedures today, Thursday April 5th." [Billboard]

The April Texas dates now take place in November. The full list of new dates is below, along with a new video for a song from Eddie's tour-mate Glen Hansard's forthcoming solo album (that he previewed live at SXSW), below...

Eddie Vedder

As Billboard reports:

Before Pearl Jam tours Europe this summer, frontman Eddie Vedder will hit the road in April and May for a 13-date solo trek across the southern U.S.

Supporting his 2011 solo album, "Ukulele Songs," Vedder's southern tour begins April 11, fittingly, at the Pearl in Las Vegas. It then works its way across the country, with a stop at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival on May 3, before winding up at Orlando, Fla.'s Bob Carr Performing Arts Center on May 16.

Oscar-winning Swell Season/ Frames singer/songwriter Glen Hansard will again be the opening act on all dates.

Tickets for the Vedder trek go on sale to the general public on Feb. 3, but a pre-sale open to members of Pearl Jam's fan club, Ten Club, begins today with info at PearlJam.com. Additionally, the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival is already on sale to the public.

The Austin date, which comes after San Antonio and Houston shows, and before a Dallas show, happens at Bass Concert Hall on 4/27. All tour dates are listed below...
