Trunk Space is so excited to welcome back Advance Base, on tour with Lisa/Liza, and Karima Walker.
Local support by: 
ROAR (solo)
Ben Nandin

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.

"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."

Banny Grove LA, Jennifer Vanilla NYC, Yipee

Banny Grove
niceymusic.bandcamp.com/album/who-is-she

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)
jennifervanilla.com
jennifervanilla.bandcamp.com/releases
youtube.com/jennifervanillatv

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."

Murderess presented by Trunk Space at FilmBar

Murderess presented by Trunk Space at FilmBar

Starring the voice talent's of Joy Nash from AMC's “Dietland”!

On the night of Friday, October 16th, 1931, Winnie Ruth Judd had a fight with her two best friends that ended in a double fatality. Two nights later, she boarded a train headed for LA, with grisly baggage that contained the bodies---one dismembered---of her former friends. When the trunks were found to be leaking blood upon arrival, Winnie was asked to open them. Claiming she forgot the key, she walked out of the station and disappeared into thin air. One week later, she surrendered in a funeral parlor, a bullet lodged in her left hand, claiming the women attacked her and that she had only shot in self defense. Oddly enough, some of the physical evidence seemed to support this story. However, instead of getting simpler the story got weirder and wilder as more became known (or unknown, depending on whose version you chose to believe), involving adultery, narcotics, mental illness, secrets and whispers of a conspiracy. To this day, the truth remains a mystery.

"Murderess'" was the brainchild of writer/director Scott Coblio, a Los Angeles native. The film was shot on miniDV tape and took 3 years to complete. It debuted at Rochester New York's Little Theater as the anchor-piece of the "Image Out" Film Festival, where it garnered positive reviews from the local press. In 2008, the film won the Best Animated Feature award in Los Angeles at the DIY Film Fest. Screening the film annually on (or near) October 16th (the night of the murders) has become a tradition at the Trunk Space, and this year's screening marks the 12th anniversary of that tradition.
