Six Organs of Admittance will hit up Johnny Brenda\’s on December 2nd, sharing a stage quite appropriately with Blues Control. Â Six Organs is the main musical project of guitarist Ben Chasny. Â His work fits mainly into the new folk vein, including aspects of avant-garde, classical music, pop and psychedelia.Â He will perform this Sunday with a full band.
Chasny’s music can be raucous one minute, and repetitive and dream-like the next. Â It can be tonally ambiguous or more melodically straightforward, distorted and brash one second, but mellifluous and kind the next. Â For instance, the instrumental section of â€œThey Called You Nearâ€, a track off his latest record entitled Ascent, is as benevolent as an Irish folk tune, while â€œWaswasaâ€ features riffy and soloistic electric guitars. Â Chasny\’s primary instruments are acoustic and electric guitars and percussion, encompassing drones, chimes and incredible solos atop looping bass lines. Â Six Organs will without a doubt challenge the listener, but can make them feel safe and warm at the same time.
Johnny Brenda\’s is located at 1201 N. Frankford Ave. in Philadelphia.
