Akron/Family Extend North American Tour, Add Vancouver Date
While Akron/Family recently delivered the details of their upcoming Sub Verses LP and some accompanying tour dates, the band have now revealed even more shows to support the album.

A press release confirms an additional week's worth of shows, which lands them in Canada one more time at Vancouver's Biltmore Cabaret on May 23. As with the previously outlined appearances, live synth player/percussionist M Geddes Gengras will open the events with a solo set. This latest batch of shows will also feature performances from California alt-pop band Avi Buffalo.
