Akron/Family schedule shows (dates), playing Brooklyn Bowl (free with RSVP)

Akron/Family

So it goes — Brooklyn’s own Akron/Family have scheduled a handful of dates for the coming weeks, including a stop at Brooklyn Bowl on June 29th with Stagnant Pools. Anyone with a Man is The Bastard shirt gets in free…. well, actually everyone who RSVPs does, while it lasts, regardless of garments (do wear clothes, though).

Though Akron/Family don’t have any new releases scheduled for the near future — though I wouldn’t put a new CDR at the merch table past them — members of that band do play on the new Swans LP. Updated Swans dates are below…still no NYC. Sigh.

Much like the recent Man Man Brooklyn Bowl performance, the show is sponsored by Denim & Supply, as is the Grace Potter one at Irving Plaza is tonight (6/14).

A listing of all dates and a recent Akron/Family video are below.
