Austin Cassette Fest

Sat., May 17, 12pm

MASS Gallery/Cheer Up Charlie’s

MASS Gallery
507 Calles

An underground revival of the tape format, evidenced last September with the inaugural International Cassette Store Day, continues with Saturday’s Cassette Fest at Eastside art space MASS Gallery. The noon-6pm installation features micro ATX labels and vendors slinging tapes as soundtracked by locals Grace London, BLSHS, Artificial Earth Machine, Pope, and Manofthedown, along with a cassette-only DJ set from the Vegetable Kingdom. Cheer Up Charlie’s hosts the 8pm afterparty with performances from ambient post-rock duo Chipper Jones and Ramones-esque pop punkers Basketball Shorts.
