On Wednesday, March 28th, the Community Center for the Performing Arts proudly welcomes back to the WOW Hall electronic artist Baths, along with special guests No Joy and Sasami Ashworth.

Will Wiesenfeld, better known by his monikers Baths and Geotic, is a Southern California native who has been crafting musical masterpieces since his early teens. Throughout his many projects, although Wiesenfeld has explored some dark and very real topics—including suicide ideation, difficult relationships and existential crisis—his sound is anything but dismal. Baths combines Lo-Fi electro with ambient beats to create a unique, dynamic sound, often incorporating looping and synthesizers.

Baths’ latest LP, Romaplasm, delivers an emotional collection of personal stories told in an indirect way using modes of fantasy that is influenced by Wiesenfeld’s interests in anime, video games and comics. Wiesenfeld explores self-deprecating moments in his life on tracks like “Human Bog” in which he describes himself as “queer in a way that’s failing me, I’m not enough of anything,” but not all of his work is based in negative experience. He also allows reverie, as in the first song off the album, “Yeoman.” In the track he conveys the indescribable feelings of becoming enraptured by someone new mellifluously singing, “Left my life on the ground, to dance with you in the clouds.”

In Romaplasm, Baths invites his listeners into the deepest parts of himself while still maintaining sounds of lucid bliss to deliver his message. The exploration of his faults and past mistakes through a lens of fantasy ultimately leaves the listener in a space of solace and self-healing.




No Joy is a creative collaboration of two friends, lead singer and songwriter Jasamine White-Gluz and Laura Lloyd.  They have a unique sound that is difficult to categorize as it truly transcends genre boundaries — but for all intents and purposes it can be described as a brilliant blend of shoegaze, dream and noise pop.  

The duo is incredibly versatile, constantly transforming their sound, while never straying from what makes No Joy so distinct, indescribable and efficacious.  Their newest endeavor comes from a collaboration with musician and producer Sonic Boom, producing a combined self-titled EP that will be released on March 30.

Through No Joy’s unpredictability and passion, they deliver an unforgettable and genuinely ineffable musical experience.




Sasami Ashworth developed her sound at the Eastman School of Music, although she has been crafting music on keyboards, horns, and guitars since the early 2000s.  In 2015, her melodic voice and multi-instrumental talent joined the band Cherry Glazerr, but recently Sasami decided to leave the band in order to focus on her own musical projects.

Now, Sasami will be playing her first solo live performance at the WOW Hall, and it will undoubtedly be memorable.

Tickets are $15 in advance and $18 day of show. Doors open at 8:00 pm and the show starts at 9:00 pm.
