Rubber Gloves Update
**Updated 5/13/16 at 2:41 pm: Rubber Gloves announces the sale for the 3-day pass for their farewell weekend. (No comps, sorry press & friends). Headliners to include: Friday - Slobberbone, Saturday - Record Hop, & Sunday - Lift to Experience. You read it right, folks. A Record Hop reunion. Commence to geeking out.
As we reported this time last week (ps, has it really been a week already?!), Rubber Gloves Rehearsal Studios announced they'd be closing their doors on June 5, 2016. The news spread fast and brought on a fury of social media posts remembering the soon-to-be-closed venue.
Rubber Gloves essentially is a Denton music-themed museum of sorts. Owner Josh Baish even compared the venue to an on-going arts project that has spanned over the course of the last nearly twenty years.
Hey, City of Denton/anyone trying to buy up Baish's property - if you really want to make the nerdy music and arts culture folk happy, turn RGRS into a music museum (or, ya know, keep it a music venue).
Rubber Gloves has started booking their final shows. For now, here is what's on the book through the end of their reign. We will be filling in these dates as the shows become available.

Here are some things some people have said about Rubber Gloves in the last week on Facebook & Twitter
And now, we loot? What? If something falls off the ceiling of a museum, would you take it? If you are at your friend's house, and you find something you like on the floor, would you take it? If you answered yes to the questions above, please stay home. Forever.
Have some respect, people. Rubber Gloves owes you nothing. I understand wanting to go and capture a moment amid an almost defunct, iconic Denton music venue - get your photos while you can, folks. But, have some damn respect. Respeck, if you will. Sigh, Denton. You are better than this. I mean... I at least think you are. Please be better than this.
