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

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."

Hello. Once again, we will not be participating in the RSD DROP tomorrow (8/29) It will be just a regular day at the record shop. We do have a small selection of RSD items that will be put out next week on the usual first come/first served basis. I have spread out what we have over three days. Each record will go out at 11am on the day listed in the graphic. Thanks!
Hello. Record Store Day has been a tumultuous journey this year just like everything else. The folks at RSD devised a plan to split most of the original list into three “drop” dates. The first of those scheduled for August 29. WE WILL NOT HAVE ANY RSD ITEMS FOR SALE ON 8/29. we will be dividing the items that we do have into smaller lists and making them available ~10 per day starting on September 1st. Keep an eye on our social media for info on which records will go out which days. It’s far from a perfect but it’s how it’s going down this year. Thanks for reading. -❤️ Square

please help save our favorite stage in Akron, Musica by reaching out to your representatives about the #saveourstages initiative.
This Wednesday, August 5, 2020, join Ohio Citizens for the Arts and the NIVA - National Independent Venue Association to boost support of the Save Our Stages Act.
The Save Our Stages Act is a critical piece of federal legislation that would provide $10 billion for six months of financial support to keep live performing venues afloat and preserve an economic sector shuttered since mid-March.
Please engage with as many of the following action items as possible! Your voice matters and will go a long way in helping our federal elected officials understand that we depend on them to help save Ohio's arts.
✅ ACTION #1: SEND EMAILS
Email Senator Sherrod Brown and Senator Rob Portman and ask them to support the Save Our Stages Act. You can easily send a digital letter by visiting SaveOurStages.com. Use the pre-written text and add a personal message to let them know why it's essential to save Ohio's stages!
✅ ACTION #2: TAKE TO SOCIAL MEDIA
Please push these actions via your social media accounts, preferably between noon to 5 pm. Tag #SaveOurStages and #SaveOhioStages anywhere that you can, and follow those hashtags and share/RT messages from Ohio venues. Download and use our pre-made graphics (https://www.dropbox.com/sh/7fhccsgkudpxaew/AABAWApnFI33BrCDeIGSDsyOa?dl=0) or create your own and include personal words and stories. Encourage your network to take action!
✅ ACTION #3: SHARE WITH LOCAL ARTISTS & INFLUENCERS
Contact every local artist and influencer you know and ask them to help promote this campaign. NIVA sent a letter to Congress signed by Coldplay, Lady Gaga, and Whoopi Goldberg. But, it's our local-borne talent that is affected the most. Let Senators Brown and Portman know that if they support Ohio's live performing venues, we will support them.
