Local Irish playwright, Patrick Conroy, has written a powerful new play in tribute to the 100th year anniversary of the Irish Revolution. The 1970’s and 1980’s were a turbulent time in Irish History. The Irish Republican Army (IRA), a paramilitary organization seeking civil rights for its people and the reunification of Ireland defended their areas against the occupying British Forces. This fictitious story tells of the chance encounter of a young British Soldier and a recently retired IRA operative. Their personal struggles, their lives and the lives of their families quickly become entangled and entwined. This play attempts to describe the thoughts and actions of people caught up in roles not entirely of their choosing. In war, there are no easy answers and lives are forever changed.
Owen Ashworth used to release his lo-fi keyboard pop under the name Casiotone for the Painfully Alone, but these days he calls it Advance Base.
Walking the line between electronic music & traditional singer/songwriter forms, Ashworth writes minimalist, heavy-hearted, & nostalgia-obsessed songs of longing & regret. His conversational, baritone vocals sing stories of hard-luck Midwesterners & their demons amid swirls of electric pianos, Omnichords, drum machines & samples.
Advance Base's second album, Nephew in the Wild, was named #1 Indie Pop album of 2015 by PopMatters.
Lisa/Liza is the lo-fi, psych-folk recording project of Maine-based guitarist, singer and songwriter Liza Victoria. Deserts of Youth is her debut LP, after numerous limited edition cassette and CDr releases. Deserts of Youth is an intimate collection of seven original songs, recorded at home by Victoria, using just her voice and her acoustic guitar.
"Deserts of Youth is an album about the parts of our past that remain within us, and visiting these landscapes with recognition of ourselves instead of a meditation on what has been lost, or is no longer a resource or a path we can use. It is about meeting the past and facing it with a sense of ownership instead of abandon; the idea that one can see a desert as a place of desolation or a place of needed reflection, full of life, and strength."
