If Yahoo! is trying to earn more cred with the hipsters, their SXSW plans are a good start. They're taking over Brazos Hall (and renaming it Yahoo's Brazos Hall) for the entirety of the festival for a few pretty killer official showcases there. Badges or wristbands required.

Following a pop/electronic show on Tuesday with Milky Chance and more, things start getting exciting on Wednesday (3/18) night, which is the Atlantic Records Loud Pack showcase. It's stacked with some amazing hip hop, including Ty Dolla $ign, Kevin Gates, Curren$y, O.T. Genasis -- as in, the "Coco" guy (!), Fat Trel, Kap G, Spenzo, DJ Drama and DJ J-Que.

Thursday (3/19) is mostly bluesy rock from Black Joe Lewis, Heartless Bastards, Delta Spirit, The Apache Relay, Elle King and Slothrust.

There's a pretty amazing night of indie rock on Friday (3/20) with reunited '90s-era bashers Failure (their only SXSW show), Speedy Ortiz, Creepoid, What Moon Things, Bully and Heat.

Finally, Yahoo! brings their stint at SXSW to a close Saturday night (3/21) with another sweet rap bill: Young Thug, Travi$ Scott, Shy Glizzy and Metro Boomin are on all on board, and possibly more TBA.

Grace Potter and The Nocturnals @ Stubb's - 11/08/2012

Grace Potter & The Nocturnals played Stubb's on November 8th, snagging support from Austin's own Heartless Bastards for the show. Pictures from the downtown venue are in this post, as is the setlist.

Grace Potter and band are now on tour on the east coast, and just announced a bunch more dates for 2013 as well. That new leg kicks off in St. Louis and zig-zags the Midwest (including Chicago) before hitting more East Coast cities missed in their 2012 go-around. All tour dates and more pictures below.

Dana Falconberry @ Frontier Bar - 9/9/2012
Dana Falconberry @ Frontier Bar - 9/9/2012

Dana Falconberry's new album, Leelanau, is coming out on October 9. As we mentioned previously, the release party is this week at The Scottish Rite Theater on Thursday (10/4). KUT and BVAustin will be presenting the show and tickets are available now.

She'll be accompanied for the performance by the Tosca String Quartet and Elaine Barber on harp, with special guests Marmalakes and Good Field.

After the party she'll be headed up to Dallas, hitting the road with My Jerusalem through the first half of October. Besides both being from Austin, the two bands have more in common: My Jerusalem's album Preachers also comes out October 9.

The second half of the month has her touring with fellow Austinites Heartless Bastards, as well as Futurebirds (who are from R.E.M.'s hometown of Athens, GA).

Back in early September Lucy The Poodle presented a free show featuring Dana at Frontier Bar with Silver Ships, Eliza Rickman, and Technicolor Hearts (who will be at CMJ this year with BVAustin for The Texas Takeover Party). Unpublished pictures from the Frontier Bar show are in this post.

See more pictures from all of the bands from the September show, along with Dana's upcoming tour dates below.

Okkervil River / Diamond Rugs
BV Day Party @ Hotel Vegan on 3/17/2012
BV Day Party @ Hotel Vegan on 3/17/2012

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.

Like Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday, we served complimentary HobNob Wines, and on Friday and Saturday we partied with The Original Moonshine, our official spirit partner.

Special thanks 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.

More, slightly belated, pictures from all of Saturday, below...

Heartless Bastards @ La Zona Rosa - 4/20/2012

After visiting the new Willie Nelson statue outside the Moody Theater, I walked the few blocks over to La Zona Rosa to see Austin's Heartless Bastards (who played during SXSW and will be at Waterloo Records on 4/25) rock out with David Vandervelde.

More pictures from the La Zona Rosa Show (and a picture of an 8-foot-Willie), along with a mostly-readable shot of the headliner's setlist, below...

WATERS @ Webster Hall recently (more by Chris La Putt)

Waterloo Records, who are celebrating 30 years (!), are housing another slew of free, in-store special events this month and beyond, including obligatory Record Store Day festivities.

Rising from the ashes of his band Port O'Brien, folkster Van Pierszalowski's latest project WATERS is set to play Waterloo this evening (4/13) at 5pm before opening for Delta Spirit at Emo's East.

In addition to all the rare goodies you'll have a chance to buy on Record Store day next Saturday (4/21), Waterloo is hosting an appearance by Garbage that afternoon, where the band will be meeting with fans and signing autographs, potentially making that exclusive Record Store Day Garbage 7-inch of their new album's first single, "Blood For Poppies," extra special. The band will also play a sold out gig at La Zona Rosa later that night as part of their current tour.

Austin's own rabble-rousers Heartless Bastards will also perform a free in-store act at the record shop on Wednesday, April 25, but not before they play La Zona Rosa on April 20. Check HERE for more HB tour dates and live pics.

Check below for an entire list of currently-announced Waterloo Records events...

Live From the Lot

Google says, "There's no place like Austin for live music, so we're excited to host some incredible artists for two full days of concerts atop a downtown parking garage (the lot at 9th & Trinity St). If you can't make it in person, you'll be able to tune in online at youtube.com/presents." The lineup so far looks like this:
