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...

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.
