Following a successful inaugural weekend-long event last spring to commemorate the cassette label’s first year in business, Gloss Records decided to bring “Gloss Weekend” back for a second year. From May 19-21, a total of 15 bands will play three shows, and the label will host a free Sunday night after party as well.
Today, Gloss put weekend passes on sale for what’s being billed as “Gloss Weekend 2” for $25. The passes—limited to just 100 wristbands—guarantee entry to all three shows (and $5 savings overall) and a free cassette compilation that features acts on Gloss’ roster. Here’s who’s playing.
Friday, May 19 at Cactus Club, 9 p.m.
The Fatty Acids
Saturday, May 20 at Jazz Gallery, 4 p.m. (all ages)
Saturday, May 20 at Riverwest Public House, 9 p.m.
Surgeons in Heat
Sunday, May 21 at High Dive (free after party), 9 p.m.

All Gloss cassettes will be marked down to $5 (from $6) and records will be $10 (usually $15). May 19 will also mark the release of NO/NO’s new EP, which will also be available for the reduced rate of $5. Last year’s weekend passes sold out, so act fast.
