Blind Pig: Advance Base
The stage name of Chicago singer-songwriter Owen Ashworth. He recently released A Shut-In's Prayer, a collection of quietly evocative portraits of various shadowy interior lives.

Opening acts are Nathan K, a local indie pop-folk singer-songwriter, and The Great American Pantry Raid, an Ypsilanti Americana pop-folk trio.
