TVD Recommends: Six Organs of Admittance, Blues Control, Nights at the Beachland Tavern, 12/5

Cleveland, if you’re looking for music that is intellectual, guitar-laden, and dripping with effects pedals, come on out to the Beachland Tavern this evening for Six Organs of Admittance, Blues Control, and Cleveland band, Nights. 

Six Organs of Admittance is the brainchild of Ben Chasny. The project has spanned ten years with differing structures—from a short-lived rock version, to a solo project which was more psych oriented with folk accents, and finally a setting which offers Chasny at the forefront with an electric band backing him.

Chasny has been involved in a variety of projects—from Comets of Fire, to Rangda, to duo 200 Years, and the band recently released the well received, Ascent.

Blues Control is a stunning two-piece that intermingles the delicacy of classically trained musicianship with the expansive sound of free-form jazz, blues, and punk. The band members don’t command your attention—until they take the stage.

Once there, you’ll find that your eyes will be glued to them, watching the intricate piano work of Leah Cho or the quick-footed changes of Russ Waterhouse, who mans a guitar and synth effortlessly.  The band first caught our attention earlier this year and is definitely worth yours.

Cleveland band, Nights, delivers via the ethereal appearance of their truly gifted frontwoman, Jenna Fournier and her bandmates who show prowess on their instruments—and around their pedalboards—which is seamless.

Their sound may conjure up thoughts of The Smashing Pumpkins, yet there’s an element of the classics that ricochets from the guitar of Frank Maraldo, hidden behind a messy mane of hair.

If you’re ready to be blown away, you’ll be at this show. We’ll see you there!
