Watch: Akron/Family Live with Sun Ra Arkestra

Dirty Impound brings us a glorious video of Akron/Family performing “Everyone is Guilty” live at Philadelphia music venue, The Blockley. “Don’t stand off in your own little world. Be here in the now. Join us in our run through the wilds of the human condition. This is what Akron/Family cries in ways literal and figurative each time they gather in a music hall.”

If at all possible, the video captures the essence of the unique experience that is an Akron/Family show. Perhaps you have to really be there to fully understand, but nonetheless, it’s easy to see the connection between concertgoers and musicians. Where other bands simply perform-eliciting some type of barrier between themselves and their fans, Akron/Family dares the audience to include themselves into the show. It’s interaction at its finest.

As if seeing Akron/Family by themselves isn’t enough, Sun Ra Arkestra joins them in the performance. Take a break and watch this video; you’ll be happy you did.
