Akron/Family will bring their transcendent, engaging live show to the Southern United States this February. Set ‘Em Wild, Set ‘Em Free, the band’s 2009 LP triumph, continues to be Akron/Family’s bold new chapter in their always-evolving and ethralling sound.
This "everyone’s invited" attitude is the crux of Akron/Family’s performance philosophy, and it seems to work; word-of-mouth enthusiasm about its live show builds like a grassroots movement. Auxiliary brass, audience-participation percussion, the occasional impromptu parade into the street, all while managing to play the songs that fans want to hear – small wonder these shows are some of the only occasions when you can literally witness 200 New Yorkers smiling in unison.
