Natural Information Society, Viands says
One of Chicago’s leading creative musicians Josh Abrams returns with his group Natural Information Society, a band dedicated to fusing North African trance and ceremonial music with sources from minimalism to jazz to krautrock. Abrams is featured on the guimbri, a bass-range, string instrument partly constructed from animal-hide. It's archaic sound is contrasted by the diverse instrumentation of the other members: 2 drummers, electric guitar, harmonium and chromatic electric autoharp.

This is an amazing ensemble that blew-away the audience when they played Trinosophes last year. And we’re not the only ones who noticed- their second album, Represencing, hit top- ten-of-the-year lists in Pitchfork, Village Voice, Foxy Digitalis, Baltimore City Paper and more- plus it garnered a 4-star review in Downbeat. A not-to-be-missed performance!

Opening the show is the newly named synth duo Viands (aka Shettler/Peterson), who suddenly find themselves with a record coming out that they hadn't planned. Analog, ambient, art-music as an antidote.

Doors at 8 pm; $8 min donation.
