Advance Base + Young Moon + Bobbie!

March 11 at 7:30 pm - 10:30 pm

$15

Celebrate Monday with Owen Ashworth (Casiotone for the Painfully Alone) Minimalist ballads of longing confessed in a deep baritone, accompanied by the uplifting warmth of lo-fi electronics. Young Moon coaxes vintage drum machines and synths to deliver heartfelt tales of love and redemption.

Advance Base is the melancholic soft rock recording project of Chicago, IL singer/songwriter Owen Ashworth (formerly of Casiotone for the Painfully Alone). Using a two-handed arsenal of electric piano, Omnichord, samplers, effect pedals & drum machines, Ashworth builds minimalist, heavy-hearted, & nostalgia-obsessed ballads around his conversational baritone. The warm, electronic sound of Advance Base has been described as “lo-fi,” “depressed” & “weirdly uplifting.”

YOUNG MOON
Trevor Montgomery is a craftsman. By day he’s a skilled tile setter, a job taxing to both the mind and body. By night he’s an equally meticulous and hard working musician, coaxing just the right tones out of his vintage drum machines and synths to carry his tales of love and redemption. As a tile setter and as a musician, his job is the same: assembling things of beauty to fill empty spaces. Gifted with a somber baritone, Montgomery returns with a new album under his Young Moon moniker entitled Colt. Having been in bands such as San Francisco post-rockers Tarentel and solo under the moniker Lazarus (Temporary Residence), in 2012 Montgomery released Navigated Like the Swan, his first album under the Young Moon moniker. According to The Wall Street Journal “It engulfs the listener—and sometimes even the narrator…”, while Consequence of Sound called it “…powerful and heartfelt…”

Bobbie is lo-fi ambient bedroom pop from Western Massachusetts. They are currently living in the present in harmony with the universe.

Critical Acclaim for Advance Base:
“It’s with no exaggeration we describe Owen Ashworth as one of the most consistent and important songwriters in contemporary indie music. From the earliest Casiotone For the Painfully Alone demos to most recent Advance Base single ‘Little Sable Point Lighthouse‘, Owen has crafted a catalogue of characters and circumstances with few rivals in the modern era. His is an ever evolving body of work which stands out in its deftness and humility and empathy and care, bringing to life individuals from across the spectrum of human experience while remaining unerringly attuned to the tender, fallible heart at the centre of each.” – Various Small Flames
