jessturesGestures has a statement that Washington D.C. must acknowledge:

On Saturday, October 31, at 3:30 p.m. EST, GESTURES will be meeting in Dupont Circle to perform ROUTINE EMERGENCY TRAINING. During this
exercise, GESTURES will be testing and otherwise handling NO-JAZZ, NEW ORLEANS RHYTHMS, PUNK COMPOSITION and other hazardous materials.* Your participation in and support for this exercise is appreciated.

*This exercise in no way indicates the long-term persistence of these hazardous materials. Again, this is a routine drill, designed to enhance the aural safety and sonic expectations of persons at or near Dupont Circle; please do not be alarmed by what you hear.

Gestures’ new EP Nice, and the broader No-Jazz project, has been received with appropriate favor by DCist.
