Akron/Family -2009 tour dates, mini-residencies (Union Pool)

Akron Family

We are excited to unveil the first details of Akron/Family‘s forthcoming album, Set ‘Em Wild, Set ‘Em Free, which will arrive May 5, 2009 on Dead Oceans. In celebration of this new chapter for Akron/Family, the band is previewing much of the material from Set ‘Em Wild, Set ‘Em Free in special shows this coming March. Akron/Family will be playing a series of intimate residencies in New York, San Francisco and Los Angeles, playing multiple nights in venues far smaller than they normally would visit. Additionally, they will be doing co-headline shows with Born Ruffians in Toronto and Montreal, performing a St. Patrick’s Day blow out at Denver’s beautiful Oriental Theater, visiting the SXSW festival and playing at the New Museum in New York City. The band has hand-picked openers for each night of the residencies, and every city will feature special guest musicians joining Akron/Family on stage, with the hope that each night the audience will receive a unique experience.

The NY dates are:

03/27 in NYC @ The New Museum w/ The Lexie Mountain Boys
03/28 in Brooklyn @ Union Pool w/ Gold Sparkle Band (TICKETS)
03/29 in Brooklyn @ Union Pool w/ Larkin Grimm (TICKETS)

I don’t see tickets yet to the New Museum show, though there are tix on sale for the February 13th High Places / Grouper show at the same venue.
