Washington, DC band Gauche proudly continues the District’s tradition of politically charged missives delivered in minimalist dance-punk packages, as heard on the group’s debut full-length, A People’s History of Gauche, out now via Merge Records. Gauche features members of contemporary D.C. standouts Priests and Downtown Boys, and the band’s music is similarly potent and passionate—energetic, anti-capitalist and all-inclusive. Baltimore art-rock band Post Pink shares Sunday’s bill, which is rounded out by Athens boom-bap sensation WesdaRuler and stalwart rock duo Eureka California.
