11/25/2020

Hi. we are open today until 5. closed tomorrow. we will be open on Friday from 10-6. there will be a limited number of Record Store Day items for sale on Friday. As has been the norm recently, we will only allow 8 people in the shop at a time. if we are ready and able to open a bit earlier and there is a line outside we may open the doors to reduce the amount of people waiting in line. please wear a mask, distance and be safe and we will get through the line as quickly as possible. This won't be like other Record Store Day events where we put out a lot of older rare records, have give-aways, entertainment etc. Hopefully we will get back to that next year. thanks

B.Will -Technics/DMC 2020 USA Championships Elimination

Our good friend, B.Will is in the DMC/Technics World DJ battle Championship and shot his entry video at the shop. check it out.

"When the record skips, the show must go on! Manipulating vinyl in a live atmosphere creates a unique set of challenges. As seen with Champions of the past, recovery is key for a true turntablist. To master the art, you must be able to find yourself in the music.

This year's DMC/Technics World DJ battle Championship is being hosted completely online due to the Covid-19 pandemic. In an effort to replicate reality, we were fortunate enough to film at Square Records in Akron, OH, a cultural staple for collectors and listeners from all walks of life."
