This show will feature performances from Karima Walker (Tucson, AZ), Claire Cronin (Los Angeles, CA), and Advance Base (Chicago, IL), who all have recent records out through Orindal Records!

Orindal Records is a Chicagoland DIY music label specializing in vinyl & tape releases for experimental songmakers, gentle weirdos & melancholic introverts between the shores of California and Maine.

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.

Claire Cronin
Claire Cronin is a writer and musician from Los Angeles whose work explores the supernatural and metaphysical themes of haunted Americana.

Advance Base
Advance Base is the melancholic story-song 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.

AltLib is always ALL AGES!
