About the Austin Chapter

Sonic Guild (formerly Black Fret) started in Austin in 2013 with a new, membership-based funding model for directly supporting our local musicians  to take their careers to the next level.  

When you become a Sonic Guild Member, not only are you connected to the best music and venues in Austin, but you also become part of the creative community that drives this city. Your voice is amplified with your fellow Patrons of Local Music as you select and celebrate the bands you love, ultimately awarding them grants at our annual Sonic Guild Ball. Make music a part of your life by joining us today.
