Strategic partnerships with A-list promoters such as Full Access, Insomniac and AfterDark began to provide a constant funnel of talent. The byproduct has been the accumulation of an epic live show portfolio for Lizard Lounge. Almost every major EDM artist, including Paul Oakenfold, Moby, Benny Benassi, Paul Van Dyk, Borgeous, Steve Aoki and Markus Schulz, has performed here.

Although the venue has a deep international footprint they’ve also tended Dallas’ talent. Strong relationships with resident DJs like Shaolin, Raydar, Bill Stanley and Joe Virus are evidence of that commitment. Nedler has also always looked for opportunities to do more, and in 1994 that mindset led to formation of one of Lizard Lounge’s most successful ventures, Sunday nights at The Church.

The name and concept was inspired by Carlos Menendez’s popular theme night at the Velvet Nightclub in Miami. Nedler had attended it during an unsuccessful foray into the Miami market, but he says Dallas’ incarnation of The Church was one good thing that came out of it. The Church at Lizard Lounge became mecca in its own right; this time for world of industrial music, goth, fetish, body modification, suspension and all things deliciously weird.
