Southland, Pando’s barbeque- and whiskey-soaked tech/music/culture festival, kicked off to a great start yesterday with former supermodel and founder of Every Mother Counts Christy Turlington Burns (watch the full chat here), and three fantastic music performers (photos here).

But today we’re upping the ante even more, with former Vice President and current Kleiner Perkins Caufield Byers partner Al Gore arriving on stage in a few minutes. You can watch live here as soon as the the interview kicks off.

Stay tuned all day as we have an exciting slate of startup pitches, salons, and guests including Braintree CEO Bill Ready, who will certainly have a thing or two to say about the abrupt departure of PayPal president David Marcus.

If you thought this was “just another tech festival,” think again.

Update: The live stream is available here for Pando members.
