Gloss Records' showcase returns for year 2 from May 19-21!

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.

Gloss 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.

Not familiar with Gloss Records?  Here’s a little “behind the scenes” for you.
