  1. Meet Jason Mraz, Egg Sucker.

    Mr. Mraz only eats eggs this big

    Jason Mraz is some guy who plays music of some sort. I guess he’s pretty popular. He has a fedora growing out of his head. He was a strict vegan until recently. He’s decided to eat eggs. Not just any eggs mind you: eggs from his neighbor’s chicken. Here’s the scramble from Spin.com.

    What made you become a vegan?
    I’m actually no longer a strict vegan. I don’t hang out in the cheese section—I don’t even eat cheese. I don’t drink milk. But every once in a while I’ll have an egg. I’m going to eat eggs that come out of my next-door neighbors farm, that’s just the way it is. I just choose not to eat factory food, the processed food, just whole foods, real food. It all started with watching one too many documentaries, or reading one too many books. After a while you just lose your appetite.

    I suppose I could go all haterade on the guy. I’m not. I haven’t had coffee yet. I will say two things though: 1. Vegan celebrities can be a double edge sword. 2. Mraz’s song I’m Yours is gonna’ be a big hit someday. It’s really catchy. It could even be in a commercial! Huzzah!

  2. Jack White

    Jack White

    I was excited to see Jack White of the White Stripes‘ side project Dead Weather perform in Prospect Park’s Bandshell the other night. But I walked out scratching my head about a couple of things. First, what was the point of the three dead animal heads that his roadie dragged out on stage right before the band came on? Seriously, I know he’s a rock star with Michigan roots but I didn’t take that to mean he was anything like that other one.

    Then, as I was bumping around a dark Port-O-Potty during the set, I heard Jack say “I bet you read Brooklyn Vegan too. Any other vegans in the crowd out there? Come on stage and we’ll kill a cow together.” And then it sounded like he mentioned something about bringing an Amish person on stage (again, I was temporarily confined in a small, stinky potty at the time). He continued on to say something about people eating only “salmon and avocado,” which seemed to upset him so he blurted out “get the fuck out of here.”

    OK, so a couple of issues: What was the Amish thing about? And since when did vegans eat salmon? (Avocado, well yes, obviously). And finally, WHAT THE FUCK IS YOUR PROBLEM JACK WHITE? What did I (or any other vegans in the audience for that matter) do exactly–other than purchase a ticket (with Ticketmaster fees, mind you) and support the Bandshell?

  3. Head to the rooftops of Bushwick this Saturday for Vegan Jam which bills itself as “New York’s Premier Vegan Hip Hop And Fashion Event” (and who are we to argue?).

    The event will feature performances by rapper Emcee Jermaine, poet Narubi Selah, and singer/songwriter Stephanie Rooker.

    T. Leacock, will be showcasing her vegan fashion-line, “reciclaGEM”, and DJ Henry C will be spinning old-school hip-hop.

    Of course my first question was about the food, and here’s what they’re offering: “a number of platters made of pasta, and vegetables. There will be raw salads and mock-meat platters. We will also have a home-made vegan cheesecake made from tofu.” Awesome.

    The Jam happens Saturday July 3 from 3-7pm on the rooftop of Opera House Lofts at 27 Arion Place, Bushwick, Brooklyn.

    Videos from Emcee Jermaine and Narubi Selah below. This is good stuff!

    Philadelphia’s Vegan Straight-Edge Hardcore band Kingdom is everything I love about real hardcore: fast, loud, aggressive and completely unapologetic. Their music is a flavorful blend of old-school head-bobbing chug-chug and lighting fast raucousness. Amazing songs tinged with elements of both metal and punk rock; teeming with a brilliance not found in many of the perfunctory hardcore bands today. More people should know about this band; they’re too rad not to.

    Recently, I reached out to Davin (lead vocalist) of Kingdom with a few questions. She responded in kind; this is what she had to say.

    Who is Kingdom?
    We’re a hardcore band from Philadelphia (and various other locations on the east coast) named after Philly’s infamous vegan Chinese restaurant- Kingdom Of Vegetarians (11th and Race St.- I highly recommend the walnut shrimp.)

    When, where and how did Kingdom get its start?
    We formed when Ben (our original drummer), Weezy (our original guitarist), and I screamed Journey’s “Don’t Stop Believin’” at the top of our lungs in Richmond, Virginia from December 31, 2005 into January 1st 2006. A few months later we were all writing songs together in the spare room of my apartment in Philly (which sounded nothing like “Don’t Stop Believin’”, unfortunately.) We recorded a demo, booked a tour, found a bassist who learned our songs the week before we left, and in summer 2006 we hit the road.

    Vegan. Straight-edge. These are two ideals that Kingdom carry on their sleeve; can you tell us more about this? Continue Reading…

  5. Chrissie Hynde and JP Jones

    For those of you who missed Chrissie Hynde’s new side project JP, Chrissie & The Fairground Boys’ benefit show at the Woodstock Farm Animal Sanctuary last weekend, they will be doing a show tonight at Brooklyn Bowl in W’burg. Doors at 6pm, show starts at 8pm. Admission is free but donations are encouraged; all proceeds collected at the door and from advance ticket sales will be donated to Stray From The Heart, a non-profit dog rescue organization that rescues, rehabilitates and places homeless dogs in good homes.

    Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member, lead vocalist for The Pretenders and animal rights activist Hynde joined forces with Welsh songwriter JP Jones and his bandmates and the result is down home, blues-influenced, folksy rock. They played a benefit show last week at Housing Works bookstore with singer and WFAS supporter Tracy Bonham, whose husband Jason Fine of Rolling Stone organized the WFAS benefit–the first of a series of concerts at the farm. Stay tuned for updates about future shows!
