Trunk Space is so excited to welcome back Advance Base, on tour with Lisa/Liza, and Karima Walker.
Local support by:
Advance Base is the electronic solo project of Chicago, IL singer/songwriter Owen Ashworth (formerly of Casiotone for the Painfully Alone).
Using a two-handed arsenal of electric pianos, autoharps, Omnichords, loops, samples & drum machines, Ashworth builds minimalist, heavy-hearted, & nostalgia-obsessed tunes around his conversational, baritone vocals. The sound of Advance Base has been described as "lo-fi," "depressed" & "weirdly uplifting."
Doors at 7pm, show starts promptly at 7:30pm. Tickets are $10.
Displaying high-level musicianship and profound lyricism, the young duo “Ian and Dylan”, is composed of Ian Graham (Vocals, Multi-Instrumentalist) and Dylan Vance (Percussion, Multi-Instrumentalist). Ian and Dylan draw influence from bands such as
“alt-J” and “Bright Eyes” to bring forth a genre-blending sound of alternative, indie, jazz and folk music.
Ponies raged from 2002-2005. They put out a CD on LA's now defunct DoggPony Records and a 7" on defunct Knifechase Records as well as one comp song on a cassette put out for a Chris Johanson solo show. LA based filmmaker, Donovan Vim Crony made a documentary of the band released in 2006. This is not that movie.
Here's a video of Ponies at Holgas at Phoenix. It starts with IHYWYP. These shows will be performed with Phil Buckman in Sweaty Palm Trees. SPT are a humbler, more 'mature' Phil Buckman displaying versatile song writing skills, the same humor and spirit that made IHYWYP a massive interweb sensation in the mid aughts, and a baritone so golden the guy from Crash Test Dummies weeps angel tears nude alone in a dark room mourning the chick from the Cranberries. Backed by Matt Dieckman and David Wiersch, SPT is a total winner.
Speaking of total winners, Treasure Mammal brings spiritual ascension every single time. 'Nuff said.
Come celebrate the power of the creative spirit and shameless, boneheaded nostalgia this holiday season.
Andy Boyd performs these one person shows sometimes and they are always great. I wish I had more info to give you. I’m sure this one will be great too.

Calvin Johnson established K Records in 1982 and founded Dub Narcotic Studio in 1993. He has performed with groups such as Beat Happening, The Go Team, Halo Benders, Dub Narcotic Sounds System, and The Hive Dwellers. He tours as a solo artist, and also performs as Selector Dub Narcotic.
He is touring in support of his new album “A Wonderful Beast.” Calvin entered the Audio Eagle Studio in Nashville, TN. using the premise “Rock’n’roll Will Never Die” as a starting point. Working closely with Producer Patrick Carney and Chief Engineer Marc Whitmore, the team tested the resiliency of such time honored materials as the electric guitar, modular synthesizer and trap drum kit, combining them in various ratios with musical elements like chords A, C and D minor. The results are the Frankenstein’s monster of an album, “A Wonderful Beast.”
Golden Boots are Tucson, Arizona’s tropical cowboys, continue to create their unique and diverse music distilled from the dusty depths and strip malls of the American southwest. Part rock, part country, part absurdity, and all weird, the toe-tapping ramshackle hydra that is Golden BooTs transforms again into their latest incarnation, the “Tropical Trio”.
Founding members Dimitri Manos and Ryen Eggleston have teamed up with long-time collaborator and potential group hallucination, tidypaws, to form one the most unique arrangements of the group in their wildly varying 15 year history. Armed only with an electric guitar, omnichord, saxophone and their wits, the Boots have released a new album "H.A.L.T." and hit the road to bring the weirdness to the world.

"Born out of true friendship and a mutual affection for positivity through healthy catharsis, Austin’s Hikes – anchored by the technical, emotive songwriting of Nay Wilkins – writes songs that chant the stories of living fully and honor the love found in tight communities. After a tumultuous year, shedding a member and nearly ceasing to exist, the original quartet reunited to deliver fierce experimental indie rock, selling out shows and creating an experience to live for.
Lilt, the group’s most recent album via Community Records, offers a wealth of laments and triumphs, recounting Wilkins nearly losing his dad, almost losing touch with nature, remembrances of a missing best friend, and on and on. The songs breathe and leap, tied together by the production of Takaaki Mino (of the band Toe) and the group’s self-proclaimed ‘felt-rock’ sound, which combines moments of beautiful dissonance, a DIY aesthetic, and ties to the Emo sounds of years past."
Sometimes it takes a post-human character to stir the humanity in a citizen of the 21st century. Sometime there's no better role model than a woman in a wig, pointing down the path of righteousness with big, caricature-ized gestures. Wherever she goes, Banny flies through the scene with the untiring energy of a person who's not the least bit confused about her purpose as a songwriter, a performer, and a culture-shaper: simply to spread the law of kindness as far as she can.
Jennifer Vanilla (Becca Kauffman of Ava Luna)
Imagine a world where separateness is secondary; togetherness, the prime condition. A place in which you are where and who you want to be from the moment you arrive. A world where Jennifer carries you away. Set adrift with the timeless pleasure of "Jennifer Clock." Take a trip to Jenniferland with crowd favorite, "Jenniferland Brochure." Get it done with national treasure, "Do It! Emphasize Your Strengths," and move to the rhythm with hit single, "Happy Sad Angry Mad." No other artist gives you that very special feeling of Jennifer.
"If you're going to have a fantasy, at least make it reality. If you're going to have reality, at least make it a fantasy."
