MINX is on first. Sure, Sunset's not your favorite venue, but it's different, a good lineup, and we get paid. Help send Minx on tour this summer!

I must make it to House of Tinnitus tonight as well ...

Yawn. I'm so sick of you guys giving props to shitty bands. Saying christian teenage runaway is a great live band is like saying George W. Bush is the best president EVER. What's wrong with you guys? You're really starting to lose it. As in integrity. Why don't you just do a write up on Mushroom Groovy or The Mad Scientists? Or maybe The 4:20 Blues Band? Whomever this Stoned Ranger or Defensive Listener is, it is quite apparent that neither of them have any taste. I have more taste in my penis.

Denton would miss out on some great shows without the hard work that Rob and Amelia do over at HOT. A fact is a fact. Same team. And now that 8th Continent is rolling again, it's only going to get better in the 940. Throw the greatness that is J&J's, Strawberry Fields, TXMF, Basement Front, Hot Link, Frenetic Love, Dan's, and Rubber Gloves into the mix and yamahamza, we gots a party going. Rubber Gloves started as a DIY. Hell, aren't all clubs DIY? Let's all quit overanalyzing this stuff and just have a good time.

What it comes down to is that lately, the best three shows i've seen in the entire D/FW/Denton "proper" have been at The House of Tinnitus, The 8th Continent, and Secret Headquarters. I think it's safe to say that all of these places are what one might definantly call d.i.y. venues. Most of the other clubs in the area simply aren't any fun, whereas places like H.O.T., The 8th, and SHQ are not only booking great shows, but even if they weren't having shows they are fun places to go to just hang out with your friends. For the most part, if you don't have cash for their shows, the people who live/work at these places are more likely to cut you some slack, and if all else fails you can probably just find a friend out front to chill with, drink a beer with, blow a doober....whatever your preference.

Josh Baish is just afraid that these house party's are stealing his fire. And he should be. Because they are. What a greedy motherfucker by the way. Complete douchebag, by the way. If you can't tell from what he wrote on here then I dare you to hang out with the fucker for an evening. Jesus. As much as you guys and girls might like the SHOWS at Rubber Gloves, just remember where your hard earned money is going. Straight into the pockets of Josh Fucking Baish.

this is about as relevant as the hot vs shq argument. there isn't a competition, dork face.

now, if the cavern could've had it's timing lined up right with it's fucking website, then maybe I would've had much longer to see bb to compare and rate, but I don't typically go to shows to see how I can rate each band in sequential order or fineness. what's the fucking point?

not only that, I've see bb before, and it's lovely, but for crying out loud?! can you really upstage a vibraphone, cello, violin, tuba, etc? come on!

You're fucked up. Hang out at your house if you want to smoke a "doob". You're not supporting anything but your selfish habits and stroking your own ego.

You don't give a shit about DIY. You just want to steal people's beer and be seen doing it.

- RGRS started as a DIY, just like SHQ and HOT, but after a visit from COD officials, was told to make a decision ASAP: to file as an LLC or we were SOL. We chose the latter, and will be celebrating our 10 year anniversary this year.
- Talk to me when you've owned a live music venue in Denton for 10 years.
- Criticism is one thing, but name calling anonymously? C'mon. If you're gonna label somebody a fucker/douchebag/asshole, at the very least have the cajones to own up to it.
- If I were greedy, we would've booked Pimpadelic here years ago.

if everyone here hates rubber gloves so much, then why do bands that visit here and drc still play there. everytime we've played there i've had a blast sometimes we get payed well, sometimes we don't but who cares. our intention is not to be famous or make a lot of money, we just want to have fun, try to take every show to a little different level, maybe do something creative, meet some cool (and some not so cool) touring bands, take a bunch of pictures and when we are old remember what we did with our best friends when we were younger.
so whatever.

RGRS is not only a great business idea, but probably the best legit venue in dDFW. As a band, if you aren't making money there, you probably aren't bringing people there.

There was one punk rock DIY place where I went to college, and two shitty venues that couldn't book anything near the quality that comes through Denton. Don't take it for granted. Could be worse, you could be in dallas.

You guys are so easily pissed off on here. It's like I can just get on here and say anything, be it lie or truth, and you people just eat it up and get all defensive. It's so sad. You're all so unsure of yourselves that you will take anything anyone says to heart and get super defensive in a heart-beat. You're mad because in MY OPINION, I think Rubber Gloves is just not having as good of shows as the house venues around here. I go to shows every week, and lately Rubber Gloves just seems dark, cliquish, and expensive. Why the fuck would I want to go there when I can go hang out at my friends house with my other friends, listen to good music, feel accepted, and not have to pay out the ass for the door charge/alcohol prices? Josh Baish is one of the most disgustingly smug people i've ever met and I choose not to support him and I don't care how many of you people with your noses up his ass say different. I don't care if he gets Prince to play Rubber Gloves. I'm not supporting him monetarily anymore. I'm not afraid to speak my mind. If you don't like my opinion then, well, that's just too bad. Get defensive and react. It just makes me look more on the mark. Later days.

RGRS is just about the coolest live music venue I've ever been to (I've been to a lot), and they have had some great stuff over the years, and still do.

I will say though that they seem to be missing out on a lot of interesting shows that, based on the number of people in attendance at said DIY shows, you would think RGRS would be able to and want to reel in.
M-. says..12:55 PM
RGRS is always fun and have treated us (and other bands we know) well even though some of our shows have been total tax write-offs for them.

However, that being said, I really miss the big plastic cups they used for beer. Can you bring those back at the 10th Anniversary Party if'n there is one?
joshbaish says..1:52 PM
Hate to let you down, but do you really think RGRS has an "us against them" mentality when it comes to the recent rise of the DIY in Denton?

Please. We don't forget our roots.
Anything that pops up here creatively, especially in the vein of music and all that it implies, is only going to add to Denton's showy goodness. Everybody involved benefits from it. We've never claimed to have a hold on every band worth it's salt, it's great to see that they're still able to come and play in Denton.

And again with the money. It's called a business, I'm not here to "cut you some slack" when you "you don't have cash for their shows", you know, maaann, just so you can "find a friend out front to chill with, drink a beer with, blow a doober".

Our shows are generally no more than $5 or $6, same as it's been since '97. You want "free"? It's called "Free Week", first week of every September. Our prices are
I looked up "smug: adjective (smugger, smuggest) irritatingly pleased with oneself; self-satisfied."
Shit yeah! I've had the opportunity to own RGRS for the past decade, and I'm not sorry if you're irritated by it.

riiiight, I'm sure that if I showed up at your friends' houses, it wouldn't feel clique-ish at all, it wouldn't be dark and dirty, and wouldn't cost me $10 in beer that I brought over but you and your free-loading friends drank it all?

I don't say all this necessarily in defense of josh, but for the sake of pointing out your weak arguement. Now, why don't you just email/call/approach josh personally and privately with whatever wet sand he put in your underwear in the first place rather than air your dirty laundry on a public forum? If it's a personal thing, it's no reflection of the rest of the bar, the venue,or the people that support it. You'll have the same problem at any venue you go to, cos you'll always have to pay cover, always feel out of place, and always have to pay for beer if you're feeling it at rgrs already.
