Biker Gang Booking
We books shows. We do the promoting, create flyers, provide sound and other bands to fill the bill. Our main objective is to expose new music to our city & encourage as much crowd interaction as possible! We are looking to book more touring bands. Lately we've been booking at Mavericks Bar, Division Brewing, & a house venue called the Mozley Mansion. Check out our past show videos on @Bikergangbooking. With touring bands, we normally split the door, and that can be discussed further in detail through contacting us. Email me at or text me 817-980-2165.

GhostCat Lounge
A house that hosts shows once a month or more. We aim to host garage and punk bands that air on the side of melodic and upbeat, but are up for any genre if the right opportunity presents itself. We are flexible and will set up a show any weekend night if the right band emails us. We try to have nice relaxed parties with a solid crowd and good music. We need about three weeks to organize an event, but don't hesitate to email in case we have a bill to jump on, the more the merrier. ghostcatlounge at gmail dot com
