Early in their career, Six Organs of Admittance’s psychedelic songs were unstructured and largely instrumental. On recent releases, however, bandleader Ben Chasny has honed his songwriting and played up his vocals, adding a beating heart to his hypnotic, droning ragas. The group’s latest, 2007’s Shelter From The Ash, darts between acoustic and electronic textures as Chasny anchors another set of serene songs that unfold slowly but pay off beautifully. Opening for Six Organs of Admittance tonight at their 9 p.m. Mad Planet show is Mick Turner, the guitarist whose solo career is consistently overshadowed by his work with critical favorites Dirty Three. Fans of Dirty Three know what to expect: wistful, earthy instrumentals that reward patience.


A Milwaukee Fire and Police Commission panel upheld the firing of former Milwaukee Police officer Christopher Manney for violating department rules last April when he encountered Dontre Hamilton before fatally shooting him. Do you agree with the commission’s decision?
