Akron/Family w/ Jeffrey Lewis & Slaraffenland @ 21c – 9/20

One of my favorite bands, Akron/Family is coming to Louisville, Kentucky’s 21c Hotel/Museum on September 20, 2009.  They are mostly folk-sounding, but throw in a health serving of electronic and experimental elements.  I’ve seen a few shows at 21c and they all have been good.  I hope they start doing this more often.  Louisville will be the last stop on a pretty hefty tour, so I hope they end with a bang.  Jeffrey Lewis and Slaraffenland open.  Not sure about ticket info yet, but when we find out, we’ll get this updated.

Also…

A series of 7″ singles from Akron/Family’s recent Set ‘Em Wild, Set ‘Em Free LP will be available at the shows.   Each record comes with a Set ‘Em Wild track on the front and a brand new creation on the back– the first one, “Everyone Is Guilty” is available at the band’s site now.
