A New York Evening With Gossip

     

The GRAMMY Museum is thrilled to present an intimate conversation with Beth Ditto followed by a performance with Gossip at National Sawdust in Brooklyn, NY. The conversation, moderated by T. Cole Rachel, will include a discussion about the creative process of their new album, Real Power, punk rock, knitting, Rick Rubin, chosen family, and more. 

Band members of Gossip are part of the many artists to be featured in the GRAMMY Museum’s New York City program series, which includes bringing a slate of the GRAMMY Museum’s renowned GRAMMY In The Schools Education Programs and Public Programs to the East Coast. “A New York Evening With…” is generously supported by the Dawn and Brian Hoesterey Family Foundation.  

ABOUT GOSSIP

Real Power, pioneering Northwest trio Gossip’s first album since 2012, finds Beth Ditto, Nathan Howdeshell and Hannah Blilie back together and reunited with super producer Rick Rubin, who helmed their 2009 opus Music For Men. The result is a comeback of magnum force that celebrates the galvanizing might of music, the joy of creative expression, and the power of chosen family in the aftermath of collective and personal trauma. 

It was Rubin who coaxed the band back together again. What started out as a follow-up to Ditto’s 2017 solo debut Fake Sugar quickly turned into a Gossip reunion when Ditto and Howdeshell began collaborating again, under the tutelage of Rubin, at his home studio in Kauai just as the pandemic was hitting in 2019. The pair traveled back and forth throughout the pandemic, recording in marathon spurts of creativity. Hannah Blilie subsequently laid down the drums ratcheting up the immediacy of the eleven tracks. 

Not only is there a mix of sonic textures and genres from propulsive rock to jubilant disco, as to be expected from a Gossip album, there’s also a mix of heady emotions on this inspired tour de force, encompassing the full range of the human experience.

The timing is ripe for a Gossip reunion, and Real Power heralds a new maturity and renewed sense of purpose for the trio. “What a way to come back after years of being gone: to come back strong and with purpose and so much joy and gratitude, but also getting out a lot of that fuck-the-world kind of energy,” says Blille. 

“When we began, so much about Gossip was about running away—that was always in the music,” says Ditto. “We survived. We came from nothing, and we got the fuck out of there. And to be here 20 years later and still making music together is just incredible.”
