BBG & BVChicago take over stages @ Hotel Vegan Wednesday (here are the lineups)

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 Vegan
5:20PM – Future Of The Left
4:35PM – Bleached
3:50PM – Deafheaven
3:05PM – Chelsea Wolfe
2:20PM – Razika
1:35PM – The Coathangers
12:50PM – White Ring
12:10PM – Freshkills

That’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!

We’ve also just announced the Wednesday Volstead stage (aka the BV Chicago stage) lineup, and that looks like this:

Wed, March 14, 2012 – BV Chicago stage @ Hotel Vegan
05:00PM – JC Brooks & the Uptown Sound
04:15PM – Flosstradamus
03:30PM – The-Drum
02:45PM – Maps & Atlases
02:00PM – White Mystery
12:35PM – Gypsyblood
12:00PM – Minor Characters

More details on that stage at BV Chicago.


Admission to all four days at Hotel ‘Vegan’ is 100% FREE and no badges/wristbands are required. There is a 21+ age restriction though, sorry about that!

We’ll have complimentary beverages on Wednesday (while supplies last) from Sailor Jerry, Brooklyn Brewery, HobNob Wines, and Honest Tea, free treats from NadaMoo!, plus even more free stuff TBA!

Thanks to our backline partners Korg, Vox, and Blackstar Amplification for providing the gear to make this party possible.
