Six Organs of Admittance's latest album Ascent propelled us into the stratosphere with its opening track "Waswasa." For the 2012 Drag City release, songwriter and guitarist Ben Chasny surfaced from the solo acoustic sea which dominated 2011's Asleep on the Floodplain to board a rocket ship with his old crew from Comets of Fire. The resulting record, the storyline of which was inspired by a crazy sci-fi dream Chasny had, takes the listener on an awe-inspiring electric guitar-driven expedition through time and space. Are you up for the trip? Because Chasny and a full band, which includes some members of Comets, are in town tonight to provide their amped up psychedelic soundtrack. Instrumental duo Blues Control open.
