This just in:
Eclectic experimental-pop outfit Akron/Family was just robbed in Toronto while on tour with Megafaun and Burlington's own wizard of weird, Greg Davis. Apparently a number of pieces of equipment were were stolen from their van including two guitars, a minidisc recorder and — eerily reminiscent of Gordon Stone's recent debacle — a banjo.
Thankfully, no one was hurt and the band plans to continue it's tour, including Thursday's gig at Club Metronome.
