The South by Southwest (SXSW) festival has already started, and since everything is bigger in Texas, singer Moby has decided to throw a vegan barbecue of epic proportions to try and veg up all of the cowboys and cowgirls in Austin.

For those who may not be familiar, SXSW is one of the biggest film and music festivals in the country, attracting over 35,000 attendees. It started in 1987 and brings together members of the film, music, and new media industries. So, the fact that Moby will be promoting the veg lifestyle there is kind of amazing (especially considering that folks in Texas tend to enjoy their meat)!

The BBQ will take place on Thursday, March 17th from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. at Cheer Up Charlie’s in Austin, Texas. In addition to the vegan eats, two stages will be set up to host performances from bands and DJ’s (including Moby!), so you can get your rock on while you chow down.

Entrance to the event is free, but donations and a portion of all proceeds from the food purchases will benefit Compassion Over Killing; a non-profit animal rights group that promotes a veg lifestyle and works to end animal abuse.

Eating delicious vegan barbecue and listening to Moby sounds like a great way to spend a Thursday! Anyone out there planning to go?
