Akron/Family @ Old Emo's
Akron Family

Akron/Family, who release a new album on April 30, were one of the many big bands who played Main Stage of the BrooklynVegan Friday Day Party at old Emo's during SXSW, and they were magnificent. Some more pictures from their set are in this post.

If you missed them, look for the band on the road in April, two nights back in Texas included: 05/03/13 @ Red 7 in Austin AND 05/04/13 @ Club Dada in Dallas. Tickets for the Austin show with Nazi Gold and M Geddes Gengras are still available and we have a pair you can win! Contest details, all tour dates, and more pictures from their BV party set, below...
