So you've already packed your bags, loaded up your debit account with funds, and are waiting for each venue to begin selling tickets. Okay, after you've bought all of your tickets and are well on your way to the first show, you may start thinking, "Wow, if I'm going to be doing this for a while, I should totally check out some really cool landmarks and vacation hot-spots!"
That my friends, is where I come in. Using my excellent tourist intuition, I'll direct you to all the right places. But first off, let's cover one thing quickly: Akron/Family is an excellent band that totally owns ass (your ass, ya damn groupie), and that's why you want to be a groupie right? Right! Okay, let us continue! Today I will select five special places for you to visit while on your exciting trip to see Akron/Family more than they want to see your screaming groupie face. You will be passing through all of these cities, I promise. Let's begin:
Awesome Famous Place/Landmark #1
The Michigan Soldiers' And Sailors' Monument (Detroit, MI)
*It's an awesome Civil War monument, check it out and buy some postcards while you're at it!
Awesome Famous Place/Landmark #2
All The Oak Trees In Raleigh (Raleigh, NC)
*Just walk around the city and find out why it's really called the "City of Oaks"! Take some pictures!
Awesome Famous Place/Landmark #3
The Horseshoe At Ohio State University (Columbus, OH)
*Their football stadium is a fucking horseshoe! How rad! Be sure to take a tour!
Awesome Famous Place/Landmark #4
The National War Memorial in Ottawa (Ottawa, ON)
*This isn't just any ol' war memorial; it's in Confederation Square. That has to mean something. Marry someone in front of it!
Awesome Famous Place/Landmark # 5
Strip Clubs (Portland, OR)
*It's a known fact that Portland has more strip clubs per capita than any city in America. I don't think you can take pictures at these famous places, but you can most certainly try.
I highly recommend all the above places (and Akron/Family!), five stars to each and every one of 'em. Expect news of a new Akron/Family LP soon, but for now, I'm sure your crazy groupie ass just wants some tourdates, so here you are (I've even used annoying asterisks to mark which cities the Awesome Famous Places/Landmarks are!):
