"Strange haircuts, cardboard guitars and computer samples." said Kurt Loder of MTV news; Truer words about Information Society have probably never been uttered... except maybe "Dude, your hair looks like a rake!"

One of the many bands to emerge from the Minneapolis music scene, Information Society has a long history of unique dance and electro/freestyle music. They hit a rough patch in the 90s over a difference of musical vision and fell off the mainstream radar for a while, but the band maintained a strong underground following and continued its popularity in nightclubs worldwide.

After a five year break and shuffling the lineup a bit, Information Society began recording and releasing again in 1997. Their most recent tracks, from this decade, play like a more mature, fully realized version of their earlier work: Less eclectic but with just as much "pure energy." Re-releases of their work continually expose a dedicated fan base by reaching #1 on the Billboard Dance/Club charts.

Information Society will be at The Varsity Theater in Minneapolis with MOULIN NOIR and Faith Assembly on March 28, 2009. Tickets are on sale now at indietickets.com.
