Gauge was a post-hardcore band who existed from 1991 until 1994. They were very influential on the emerging Northwest suburban emo/punk scene during their lifespan. In 2010, the group announced they were reuniting. They played several local shows in 2010 and 2011 but have been largely inactive ever since. In 2010, filmmaker Matt Golin made a documentary about the band called Gauge:153.
