About this Event

On July 12, Washington, DC’s Gauche will release

A People’s History of Gauche, a collective catharsis of

anger, frustration, and trauma through creativity. Jason

P Barnett, Adrienne CN Berry, Mary Jane Regalado,

Pearie Sol, and Daniele Yandel fi nd their agency and

joy through creating and performing music together in

36 minutes of groove-fi lled power punk.

When asked about the genesis of the title of their Merge

debut, Daniele cited this defi nition: “A people’s history,

or history from below, is an account of events from

the perspective of common people rather than leaders,

the story of mass movements and of outsiders.” It’s a

fi tting title for an album that tackles such heavy topics

as anxiety, capitalism and colonialization, and healing

ancestral traumas, as well as dismantling and dissecting

patriarchy, creating beauty in the face of oppressive

forces, and resisting exploitation. These are vital songs

manifested in a celebratory manner, created quickly

through the group’s self-proclaimed “Gauche magic.”

Recorded with Austin Brown (Parquet Courts) and

Robert Szmurlo in Brooklyn, NY, and with Jonah Takagi

(Ex Hex) in DC, A People’s History of Gauche marks the

fi rst time the band worked with people outside of their

ranks, resulting in a fuller sound that boasts more intricate

instrumentation. From the very fi rst line of album opener

“Flash”—“Light’s supposed to show the way, not over-

expose it”—Gauche are here to compel us to dance while

singing along about society’s universal struggles.

Gauche undoubtedly make art, but their guiding tenet

is craft. “When I say that, I mean in the sense that Art

with a capital A is thought of as something rarefi ed,

something outside the context of everyday life, outside

of everyone’s grasp or potential,” expounds Daniele.

“That sense of craft, of something you return to every

day and is valuable because it is something you share in

common with all people, is how I think of music. Well,

good music at least.”

Gauche bring us music and movement and struggle and

light, and now it is our job to dance!
