Emily Wells @ Hotel Vegan
BrooklynVegan @ SXSW 2012 - Hotel Vegas and the Voldstead Lounge

It may only be an opening DJ set, but it will still be interesting to see what happens tonight, 4/9, at Bowery Ballroom when Dan the Automator shares a bill with Emily Wells who he’s also collaborating with for a new project called Pillowfight which performed live at SXSW. You can watch a video clip below.

Emily also played solo at SXSW, including a set at our own Hotel Vegan. Some pictures from that are in this post too.

Tonight’s Bowery show is probably Emily’s biggest-ever headlining show in NYC (possibly anywhere), so go out and support. Tickets are still available, and Live Footage, who are on tour with Emily, play too.

Updated tour dates, SXSW pics, Pillowfight video, and Emily’s brand new IFC-premiered video for “Passenger”, below…
