Advance Base with Karima Walker

Public Space One — Friday, March 17 at 8 p.m.

Advance Base and Karima Walker head to Public Space One on Friday, March 17 for a low key evening of solid songwriting and some of the most beguiling vocals in current music.

Owen Ashworth, who from 2007-2010 spun his midwest melancholy as Casiotone for the Painfully Alone, dropped his first record as Advance Base, A Shut-In’s Prayer, in 2012. His heady mix of electronica and folksy storytelling is buoyed by a voice that won’t let you turn away. His second Advance Base album, Nephew in the Wild, came out in 2015, catching the number one spot on Pop Matters’ ranking of Indie Pop albums from that year.

His current tour is supported by Karima Walker, a singer/songwriter from Arizona whose voice is itself as open and windswept as the desert, and whose tunes carry the same longing and promises as Ashworth’s. Arizona’s YabYum named Walker for its 2016 Songbird Award, calling out her “stunning song construction” and “heart-stirring voice” on the album Hands in Our Names.

The show on Friday starts at 8 p.m. Tickets are $10 in advance, $12 at the door. Seating is limited.
