Free Week at Rubber Gloves

Few things mark a summer's end in Denton quite like Rubber Gloves' Free Week. This year's seventh annual event hosts Danny Rush & the Designated Drivers on Monday, Vulgar Fashion on Tuesday, Cozy Hawks on Wednesday, and culminates on Saturday with A.Dd+, Shiny Around the Edges, Idiots and Atomic Tanlines. "I'm looking forward to each night because it's so individualized," Rubber Gloves owner Josh Baish says. "It's themed, almost. You get to see the micro scenes within the scene ... although I hate using the word scene." For those opting for a quieter refuge midway through, Wednesday also features the art of local artist and screenprinter Nevada Hill in the Meme Gallery, the small room attached to the venue. Check for the full schedule.
