Austin

Austin Blood Alliance DIY
Started in Winter 2013 by a group of like-minded individuals with the goal of building a more cooperative DIY art and music scene in the Austin TX area. We host both music and art shows at various locations around our city. We typically host at DIY spots and houses. We host shows constantly so we aren't always available to help every band/musician/artist that needs a show put together. Please check out our facebook page, blog, or tumblr to get an idea of what type of shows we typically do. Email us or send us a facebook message (linked above) and we will let you know if we can help or not. austinbloodalliance@gmail.com

Ghost Cat House
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. pollenatx@gmail.com NOTE: We're taking August 2014 off.

a collectively-run, all-volunteer, not-profit, warehouse space. We've been around since September 2002 surviving on (mostly small) donations to keep the doors open for our programs and services.

Not Half Good Booking
I try and put on a few shows a month for touring bands. I can really only help punk/folk punk/pop punk bands but if you play a different genre of music, I may be able to lead you in the right direction. If I am on tour with my band, I probably cannot help with a show. Please try to send booking requests 2-3 months out since most of the places where I can get shows fill up pretty fast. nothalfgoodbooking [at] yahoo [dot] com
