Akron/Family

Friday, May 14, through Sunday, May 16, Quixote's True Blue, 303-366-6492.

Don't let the veneer of Americana fool you: Akron/Family is a weird band. Mixing folk with a broad palette of experimental pop and avant-garde improvisation, the act's songs are reminiscent of the darker, more hushed yet blissed-out moments of Sun City Girls. It's not that this outfit is overtly inventive; rather, its innovations are found in the subtle details of texture and melody. Early into its career, Akron/Family signed to Young God Records and toured extensively with Angels of Light, having served as the backing band for 2005's Angels of Light Sing "Other People." Last year's Set 'Em Wild, Set 'Em Free strongly displayed the group's ability to reinterpret classic rock without sounding like second-rate throwbacks. This three-day residency should give the clan ample time to exercise its considerable talents.
