The Spot

The Spot Here we're allowed everything all the time
(37)

What is The Spot? Everything / collaboration / live performance / music / poetry / dance / art gallery / recording space / rehearsal / a place to get down and around / where souls converge to create / or just hang out / all night / we don't close The Spot was started by a group of people with a desire to breathe some much needed fresh air into downtown akron by facilitating creation, collaboration, and bringing artists together. They seek to do this by creating the space known as The Spot: a place where anything goes. On the second friday of every month, The Spot will host a party. At these parties you will find an array of North East Ohio's finest visual artists, musicians, poets, dancers and DJs displaying their talents. It goes on all night. The Spot doesn't close. You can also bring your own drinks. You might want to plan on being there...

Spot PSA:

The Spot is no longer a functioning physical location.

However, the energy that was cultivated at the Spot in a certain time period is spreading all over Akron!

SO, get out there and explore all the amazing artistic talent, music and quality local businesses that Akron is growing right now. Your community is beginning to thrive!

In case you have not heard, The Spot got robbed last night between the hours of 1:30AM to 12pm. We have reason to believe that someone stayed behind (details on suspect will follow) after the event we had last night, hid in the back room after we locked up and proceeded to steal about 3 to 4000 dollars worth of gear.

Gear list coming soon. If you know ANYTHING about this or what may have happened, please call matt 216.904.1370 or dan 330.590.0980. If you have a keen criminal investigative mind, contact us too!
