Plain and simple, if you go to an Akron/Family concert and do not have fun, you just don't like music.  Akron/Family are this year's "it" band from Young God Records and they've bloody earned it: they have been touring non-stop since April of this year (2005).

The Eye finally caught up with them on their third time through this year and this time was easily their best show ever.  We sat down with Miles and Dana for some quality time talking about their music, working with Michael Gira, and crowd surfing, amongst other things.

Once again a special thanks go out to Stacie of The Critique of Pure Reason who has a knack for picking some of the best shows to produce that ever come to town.
