Based on the model successfully employed for many years by the Chico Area Punks, the booking collective will be a group of volunteers who meet monthly to organize event programming for the gallery.
Our goal with this experiment (which we plan to try out in a trial period over the next few months) is several fold. We hope that this new arrangement will:
- Allow us to maximize our event offerings (and income) while spreading the work this involves among a larger group of people.
- Diversify our programming offerings and better reflect the breadth of local music, while still hosting touring bands.
The first meeting of the new collective will take place on June 15. Stay tuned for more info!
