The Blind Robin in Ukrainian Village (853 N. Western) hosts a free listening party tonight at 9 PM for the forthcoming Akron/Family album Akron/Family II: The Cosmic Birth and Journey of Shinju TNT, due February 8 on Dead Oceans. If you're into folk-influenced, psych-happy indie rock and wordy, pretentious album titles, then there's a bar stool with your name on it.
And seeing that the Empty Bottle is just north of the Blind Robin on Western, the listening party could be a nice warm-up to Saturday's 10 PM show with Crayolala, the Leadership, Jellybones, and the Pineapple Cavaliers. That's also free with an RSVP to email@example.com.
There, I just planned an evening on the cheap for you.
