Six Organs of Admittance is the primary musical project of guitarist Ben Chasny. Chasny’s music is largely guitar-based, however it includes eastern influences, marked by drones, chimes, and eclectic percussive elements.

The band is associated with numerous current scenes, most notably the New Weird America movement. Acts ranging from folk artist Devendra Banhart to drone metal band Sunn O))) to the highly experimental Current 93 count Chasny among friends. Six Organs has always been a critical darling, and the past few years have seen their stature in the indie world substantially increase.

Chasny is also a member of the psychedelic band Comets on Fire, and has working relationships with Badgerlore and Current 93.

We hear that, following last November’s knock-your-socks-off set at the Klondyke Club, Six Organs will return with two guitar and no drums. Read into that what you will…

Also playing are Manchester’s own Kailash and Stranger Son of WB – have a listen to them.

This is a co-promotion with Pineapple Folk.

Tickets available from WeGotTickets, Ticketline, Piccadilly Box Office or on 0161 832 1111.

All shows are 18+ unless otherwise stated.
