Austin-based production company Margin Walker announced that with the pressures of the pandemic, it would close its doors at the end of this week.


Margin Walker, which had been operating as Texas' biggest independent promotions company for more than four years, said in a statement that after making painful staff cuts, changing the business model and accepting grants, the company was still not immune to COVID-19.

"Being both passionate about what we do and also the largest independent promotion company in Texas has made this a very tough decision, but one that, essentially, made itself," Margin Walker said in a statement.

While operating, Margin Walker promoted over 3,500 live shows across Texas for hundreds of bands and musicians including Shakey Graves, Black Pumas and of Montreal.

In a final goodbye, the company asked followers and supporters to continue to support local artists and venues when it is safe to do so again.

Those who have purchased tickets for Margin Walker shows in 2020 or 2021 are directed to contact Eventbrite.
