Location: Chantry Chapel, 3 Calder Vale Rd, Wakefield WF1 5DL
Age restriction: Over 18s only
8.00pm Karima Walker
Tucson, Arizona interdisciplinary artist Karima Walker walks a line between two worlds. Aside from her long resume of collaborative work with artists in the diverse fields of dance, sculpture, film, photography and creative non-fiction, Walker has long nurtured a duality within her work as a musician, developing her own sonic language as a sound designer in tandem with her craft as a singer/songwriter. The polarity within Walker’s music has never been so articulately explored, or graced with as much intention, as on her 2021 album, Waking the Dreaming Body, which was featured on "best albums of the year" lists from Gorilla Vs Bear, Goldflakepaint, For the Rabbits, Deepest Currents, Hanif Abdurraqib & more.

9.00pm Advance Base
Advance Base is the melancholic synth pop 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."
Animal Companionship, the third & most recent "studio" album by Advance Base, was released in 2018 by Run For Cover Records / Orindal Records. GoldFlakePaint & Various Small Flames both listed Animal Companionship among their favourite albums of 2018. Since then, Advance Base has released Wall of Tears & Other-Songs I Didn't Write, a home-recorded collection of (mostly) country/Americana covers arranged for electronic instruments & Live at Home, a collection of mid-quarantine livestream concert performances & the amazing “Christmas in Nightmare CIty” music video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pw2GTYW5r6M

The gigs usually have two acts, times are always posted well in advance, and gigs finish early (10pm) when buses and trains are still running, and you can go get an early night if you want one 🙂
