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...

We're now in the middle of Friday, and happy to announce that we've added one more band to Saturday's bill! Come on down.

Esme Barrera

Tragic news to start the year. KXAN reports:

"Austin police are asking for help from the public to find the person responsible for the New Year's Day killing of Esme Barrera in her North Central Austin home.

Monday evening, they released a sketch of a man who may have attacked at least one other woman in the same block where Barrera, 29, was killed...

...According to several social media sites, Barrera was an El Paso native and active in the Austin music scene. She worked part time at Waterloo Records, where employees and friends were grieving her death on Monday.

Barrera was also a teacher's assistant at Casis Elementary where she worked with special needs children for the last five years.

"I am just shocked beyond words," said friend Heidi Knape, who worked with Barrera at Casis. "She was just the most energetic, fun girl that would help anyone out on campus."

She was also volunteer for Girls Rock Austin, a camp for young female musicians."

Tributes are popping up all over the web. You'll find one and a link to more HERE as well as a dedicated tumblr HERE, and update: a blog post by Gerard Cosloy HERE, and update two: a tweet from Ted Leo and Okkervil River and Ringo Deathstarr, YACHT, and Centro-Matic.

Update three: Brooklyn benefit planned.

Rest in Peace Esme.
