Ghost

with Six Organs of Admittance

Sat, Sep 25, 2004 9 PM

"One of the most formidable (and important) rock bands I know...a rollicking masterwork."—Pitchfork.

Since their inception in Tokyo in 1984, Ghost have built a reputation for beautifully sprawling music that combines theremin, hurdy gurdy, guitars, oscillators, lute, exotic percussion, and horns, among many other instruments. The freewheeling ensemble (who record in caves, ruins, and churches) create a crystalline psych-folk sound that suddenly shifts with the rolling thunder of electric guitars. Their most recent Drag City release, Hypnotic Underworld, lives up to its title. Check out our web site for an update on the opening acts.

Centered around guitarist Ben Chasny, Six Organs of Admittance open the show with a set of evocative instrumental excursions that Pitchfork calls "a kaledoscopic hallucinatory experience."
