Okkervil River / Diamond Rugs
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.
More, slightly belated, pictures from all of Saturday, below...
The Drums / Wedding Present (by Tim)
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.
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...

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....
Ringo Deathstarr @ Hotel Vegan (by Amanda Hatfield)
"One of my favorite Austin bands, Ringo Deathstarr, do the shoegaze thing better just about any current band. Good and loud!" - Bill PearisThe BV Austin stage was located inside Volstead Lounge at Hotel Vegan on Thursday, 3/15, during SXSW, and though the schedule looked like this: 12:15 Love Inks, 1:00 Feathers, 1:45 Gashcat, 2:30 Ringo Deathstarr, 3:15 Silent Diane, 4:00 The Young, and 5:00 Ume, we actually moved Ume on to the Hotel Vegas inside stage to accomodate more people and a certain TV camera crew for their set. It was still intimate though, or to quote, Anthony Bourdain, it was "A shitload of rawk in a tiny little room!"
Galexy Gehring of Ringo Deathstarr, who PACKED the room at 2:30, was a trooper and played two sets during the day. The first was with Feathers at 1:00. Bill Pearis wrote:
Feathers have barely been together six months but they have clearly spent that time practicing. They have it together and this was one of my favorite sets of the week. Most of their material is of the gothy electro variety, they opened with a Norman Greenbaum-style glammy stomper that I really dug. A lot of instrument switching showcased most of the members of the band.Special thanks to Love Inks for starting the day off so early. A noon slot is never easy, but they handled it with grace. Catch them during the evening hours on April 17 at Mohawk after Chairlift.
Gaschat played a great set of Neutral Milk Hotel-like jams, much like they did later that day at the Sub Pop official SXSW showcase. NPR likes them too, but not their name.
With three stages running at the same time at 'Hotel Vegan', I would miss a band or two, and sadly Silent Diane was one of them, but Tim, Amanda and a SPIN photographer made sure to catch them though. I also missed Silent Diane's set later that night at Neon Indian's label showcase, but hope to see them on their upcoming massive tour.
At 4:00, The Young rocked a BrooklynVegan party for the 2nd day in a row. Their first BV set was the night before at Bar 96. Catch them when they open for Frankie Rose & DIVE (both artists who also played Hotel Vegan) at Red 7 on April 14.
Special thanks to a Sailor Jerry, HobNob Wines, and Honest Tea for providing refreshments. Thanks also to our backline partners Korg, Vox, and Blackstar Amplification for helping make the sound happen.

The show is totally and completely FREE, open to all ages AND you can BYOB if you like (at your own risk, of course)! A big thank you to the amazing Sophie Penrose for the jawdropping flyer, and stay tuned to BV Austin and @bvBBG for the final band to be announced on Thursday afternoon (3/15). DON'T SLEEP! This will rule.
The show is one of two Chaos in Tejas events this week in Austin, with the first one, an official SXSW showcase, happening on two stages Wednesday night at Hotel Vegas & the Volstead Lounge with (get this) Juvenile, Mannie Fresh, Katey Red, Pallbearer (who play the BV-BBG show at Lovejoys), The Impalers, Razika (who play Hotel Vegan on Wed), DJ Rusty Lazer and many, many more.

BrooklynVegan is proud to be taking over Volstead and Hotel Vegas for four days next week during SXSW!
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!

4:35PM - Bleached
3:50PM - Deafheaven

Head below for some video of the Wednesday bands in action. See you at Hotel Vegan!
this flyer just represents part of it...
As usual, BrooklynVegan will be hosting a ridiculous amount of shows during SXSW. This year that includes one official SXSW Interactive event, two official SXSW Music events, four full days on three stages at Hotel Vegan (aka Hotel Vegas - flyer above, but no lineup yet), and multiple metal/hardcore parties including the already-announced full day at Scoot Inn on 3/16.
BV Austin (this very blog) will present a stage on Thursday, 3/15 at Hotel Vegan with all Austin bands.
Stay tuned for more details!
