Advance Base w/Nathan K – Athens (11/5) + Atlanta (11/6)
In the three years since Advance Base’s debut album, A Shut-In’s Prayer, made #19 on MOJO Magazine’s Best Albums of 2012 list, singer, songwriter & multi-instrumentalist Owen Ashworth has published a book of drawings, made beats for Chicago rapper Serengeti, recorded the debut single by psych-folk troubadour Julie Byrne, paid tribute to gospel & outsider music legend Washington Phillips (see 2013’s The World Is In A Bad Fix Everywhere EP), contributed electric piano & co-writing credits to Sun Kil Moon’s critically acclaimed 2014 album, Benji & produced more than a dozen other releases for his own label, Orindal Records. Ashworth has finally turned his focus back on his own music & given us Nephew in the Wild, the second official album by Advance Base.
Ashworth, you might know him as the man behind Casiotone for the Painfully Alone, is making two stops in Georgia on his upcoming tour — on Thursday, November 5th at Flicker Theatre & Bar in Athens and on Friday, November 6th at The Drunken Unicorn. Check out those links for tickets to both shows.
The Southeastern portion of the tour includes opening support from Nathan K., the project of Nathan Klages (Stepdad).
