  1. Japan Benefit

    Illustration by Marcos Caceres

    Vegans are good at many things: eating, thinking, acting… We’re also pretty darn skilled at raising money. So, do your part and pack Southpaw in Park Slope, Brooklyn, on Tuesday, May 10th from 7:00 P.M. to 11:30 P.M. for the Benefit for Japan Earthquake Animal Rescue and Support + Americares. (Please bring all of your non-vegan friends with you!)

    A wild variety of food and entertainment will be offered throughout the evening, so even the most difficult-to-please folks among us should find themselves having a really great time. The lineup includes:

    Proceeds from the benefit will support Japan Earthquake Animal Rescue and Support, which coordinates relief efforts for animals in crisis, and Americares, which provides humanitarian aid such as emergency shelters and medical supplies.

    Buy your $15.00 tickets in advance or at the door!

    Sorry youngins’, this event is 18 and over. Bring your ID — it will be checked!

    Southpaw is located at 125 Fifth Avenue, Brooklyn, NY [map].

  2. Hot on the heels of performances by Chrissie Hynde and Sean Lennon, the folks up at the Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary recently announced that vegan musician Moby will be playing an acoustic show at the sanctuary on Saturday, September 25th as a part of their Summer Concert Series.

    Sanctuary co-founders Jenny Brown and Doug Abel, as well as their crew of employees and volunteers, have been hella busy this summer. In addition to managing the needs of over 100 rescued and rehabilitated farm animals, they have put together this successful series of live concerts on the farm to benefit those rescue efforts. They’re making me feel sort of bad for using my summer vacation to catch up on re-runs of “Glee.”

    Opening for Moby is Kelli Scarr, a singer/songwriter who frequently contributes vocals to Moby’s tracks. Following Moby’s acoustic set, he will be joined on-stage by members of the band Mercury Rev to perform a “live soundscape” to the 1956 classic French film The Red Balloon. This multimedia, full-sensory concert will be held outdoors, and there will be vegan food and drink available to purchase. How very Woodstock of them.

    This is a great way to simultaneously bid farewell to the summer concert season and support Woodstock’s rescue and outreach efforts. You can get advance tickets online now for $30. Or, if you really want to make it a vegan field trip to remember, you can attend Woodstock’s MOGO Workshop with Zoe Weil that same day and get into the Moby show for half-price.

    Tickets and more information about both the MOGO Workshop and the Moby concert are available at the Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary website. They also have information on transportation to and from the city, including bus routes, so you have no excuses.

  3. SXSW Panel Picker Logo

    Pick Panels Not Noses!

    Remember when you learned about new music through those little booklets called “zines”? You read a short paragraph review of a record, took a gamble on it by sending your well-concealed cash to the distro, and a few weeks later the United States Postal Service delivered the record to your door? Well, South By Southwest (SXSW) has been around since those halcyon days, too, but it doesn’t mope around and wax nostalgic about the golden years prior to the Internet Revolution. Nowadays, it still organizes a bazillion live shows, as well as a film festival and a surprisingly diverse interactive portion that plays host to a slew of panels, such as those featuring bloggers who want to talk about blogging to other bloggers! Futuristic stuff!

    Our pal Stephanie of The Lazy Smurf’s Guide to Life has envisioned a panel for vegans to call their very own at the next SXSW in March 2011. Here’s the official description of “Internet Activism Vegan Bloggers Take Over the World“:

    A surge of vegan bloggers has been using the internet to make change in the way people think about animals through new forms of activism. VeganMoFo (the vegan month of food) and worldwide Vegan Bakesales to raise money for causes and promote veganism are just some of the ways that we are breaking out of the stereotypes of the past and creating a revolution. Learn creative ways to promote your message and engage your community on & off the web and more about food activism and using your culinary skills to promote compassion.

    SXSW panels are decided by crowd-sourcing, so please vote if you want to see SXSW get more vegan-friendly next year! Voting was originally scheduled to close last night, but it’s been extended through this weekend, so cast your vegan vote by 11:59 CST Sunday, August 29th, and your vote shall be counted!

  4. Do you know Puppets in South Park Slope? There’s a lot to like about the place: a very vegan-friendly menu, full bar, back yard, late hours, and–most unusually for a veg restaurant–excellent music.

    Seriously, live music at veggie restaurants tends to be pretty lousy, right? But Puppets puts the music first, while also providing real good eats. (And don’t get me started on the chicken-finger-and-cobb-salad filled menus at typical jazz clubs!)

    Anyways, Puppets is going through some tough economic times and they’ve declaring this weekend “Help Save Puppet’s Jazz Bar Fundraiser.” If you happen to see this post tonight and can make it over before 3am, go for it. Otherwise, head over on Saturday the 28th between 5pm and 3am (happy hour til 8! backyard til 11!) and have burger or hot dog or salad or guacamole (hell, read their whole menu yourself; it’s short). And give them some money. They’re waiving all cover charges during the fundraiser and instead just asking for you to give what you can.

    Even if you’re not a real jazzhead, I bet you’ll have a good time. Let’s do our part to keep this place open!

    Puppets is located at 481 5th Avenue between 11th and 12th in Park Slope, Brooklyn.
