Chicago’s Natural Information Society is set to provide a genre-bending evening of music Tuesday night in Hallwalls Contemporary Arts Center (341 Delaware Ave.).
The Windy City composer and bassist, born Joshua Abrams, comes armed with a guimbri, a three-stringed bass made of animal hide and predominantly used during healing ceremonies in North Africa. His impressive musical resume includes working with artists such as Bonny “Prince” Billy, Sam Prekop of the Sea & Cake and Tortoise. Abrams’ unique instrument choice pairs well his more contemporary styles, resulting in a sound that touches upon krautrock, jazz and avant-garde folk.
While no cover is listed for Tuesday’s show, the promoters have asked for a $10-$20 donation at the door. Music begins at 8 p.m. Further event info can be found here.
