The Akronauts will also perform, and additional live music will be programmed by Akron Recording Company and the youth-based nonprofit First Glance’s hip-hop program. In addition, Oddmall’s Great Grassman Gathering will feature more than 40 purveyors of art, games, toys, comics, collectables, and all things odd, geeky, bizarre, imaginative, and wonderful.
