This event is all ages
Washington D.C’s Gauche is an anti-capitalist, anti-racist feminist jam band. Nearly mechanically crisp percussion offers a foil to idiosyncratic organ, fluid bass lines, and truly inspired guitar figures. The trio of Mary Jane Regalado, Daniele Yandel, and Jason Barnett form the core of the band who play with a rotating casts of friends and collaborators such Perry Fustero, Laurie Spector, Adrienne Berry, Jhon Grewell, Shawn Durham, and Don Godwin to list just a few. Their debut EP was released on Sister Polygon Records in 2015, then reissued on vinyl by Danger Records in 2017. Their music redefines the position of women, appearing as an ode to beauty and feminine energy. A manifesto in the form of mythology; each song a new myth, a new possibility for existence within alienating and consumerist society, like a new religion, Goddess Worship.
The band has plans to release their debut LP in 2019.
Olivia Neutron-John’s self-titled debut full length OLIVIA NEUTRON-JOHN is the artist's first recorded output since 2014’s INJURY TRAIN AND I'M NEVER GETTING OFF IT b/w VULNERABILITY. Emerging with this album, their sound remains transcendent and meticulous with a newly articulated focus and even bolder minimalism. A. Nasty returns on keyboards and voice, now writing sinewy bass lines against the steady pulse of a drum machine. Lyrically it is sparse, but laden with meaning. A. Nasty’s vocals are psychedelic yet straightforward, confident but desperate, calculated and unhinged all at the same time.
Ambiguity drives OLIVIA NEUTRON-JOHN - the feeling of imminent danger in nearly going off the rails, just barely kept in line with the order of rhythm. OLIVIA NEUTRON-JOHN draws you into its hypnotic repetition, only to disorient with a catchy line gone awry and into a totally different atmosphere, like Ian Curtis playing on the moon. The punk sensibilities of O N-J’s dance music ride a delicate balance between chaos and precision. The year is 2019 and fictions of genre and gender are even further behind us, making way for OLIVIA NEUTRON-JOHN.
OLIVIA NEUTRON-JOHN was recorded by Daniel Saperstein (Flasher) and Owen Wuerker at Lurch, with the exception of vocals, which were recorded by Greg Saunier (Deerhoof), who also mixed and mastered the record.
