Segueing between hushed hippie folk, beardo abandon, group chants, gnarly guitar action, and Afro-psych throbs, the Williamsport-by-Williamsburg trio Akron/Family swing through the overnight for a special all-improv set. Working with Rhys Chatham, William Parker and Hamid Drake, Burlington experimenter Greg Davis, and others, the band has constantly sought to push beyond boundaries. Set 'Em Wild, Set 'Em Free, their third and newest album, points at the dream-suites and fourth-wall busting chaos of their live show
