As temperatures fall and outdoor shows drop off the slate, live music once again stands in peril. “We’re just limping along, holding by our fingernails by a f**king cliff,” one venue ow…

Not surprising but disappointing all the same..

Not surprising but disappointing all the same..

Highland Square Neighborhood Association and the Highland Square PorchRokr Committee have made the very difficult decision to cancel this year’s (in-person) PorchRokr event. We understand that this is a beloved festival in our community and we do not take this decision lightly, as it is EQUALLY upsetting for us to have to make this tough call. We hope you can understand that a lot of thought and consideration went into this decision and we believe we are doing what is best to keep our community safe, healthy and moving forward.

PorchRokr is a day where we proudly serve over 15,000 people, however this year we are unsure of what crowd restrictions may look like in August and we have been unable to properly interact and engage with our community and neighbors to plan this festival because of the current pandemic.

What this means moving forward:
-We ARE currently planning on a way to celebrate our neighborhood virtually. Stay Tuned!
-Bands will need to reapply in 2021
-Bands that have already applied, please check the email you’ve applied with for more information
-All vendors will be given a full refund
-Vendors will need to reapply in 2021
-Vendors that have already applied, please check your email for more information
-Sponsors, we will be getting ahold of you via email to discuss options
-We will remain in the same footprint for 2021

In the spirit of supporting and celebrating local artists and musicians, we want to provide links to resources for support:
ArtsNow: https://artsnow.org/
National Endowment for the Arts: https://www.arts.gov/covid-19-resources-for-artists-and-arts-organizations
For other resources, more aimed at local businesses: http://gaccovid19.org/

If you are interested in continuing to support HSNA, please donate through our PayPal found here: https://paypal.me/highlandSquare?locale.x=en_Us

Save the date for 2021 PorchRokr on August, 21st!

Time Traveler Records

A true gem in Akron, Ohio! Out of town folks can order off of Discogs!

One of Northeast Ohio's longest-running independent record stores-- selling vintage vinyl, a variety of new and used music, CDs, and rare collectors items.

One of my faves ever!

One of my faves ever!

Welcome to the June 2020 issue of Record Collector #506 (out now, available to purchase here: https://shop.recordcollectormag.com/issue/view/issue/RC506). Whether you're locked down In The City or talking a stroll through the Wild Wood (maintaining social distancing of course) then RC’s June issue is the one for you – as we assess the long-players of Mr Paul Weller from 1977 to the present day. We talk to Richard Butler of The Psychedelic Furss about their glorious past and their brand new studio album, we open The Doors to Robby Krieger, examine iconic and rare poster art of the punk/post-punk era, Go Down Gamblin' with Blood, Sweat & Tears and 50 years down the line we salute the immeasurable impact of The Groundhogs’ epic Thank Christ For The Bomb.

Our reviews section stacks up on lockdown platters with reissues from Iggy Pop, Neil Innes and Ariel Pink while new releases are served up from Car Seat Headrest, Brigid Mae Power and Lucinda Williams. There's chats with John Foxx, Sword, Harley Flanagan, Asian Dub Foundation, Paradise Lost and Limahl. Damon Gough talks us through the soundtrack of his life, we're reminded of the importance of Sir Lord Baltimore and Ivor Raymonde, while dipping our toes into the ocean of Japanese city pop.

Elsewhere we take a look at a reader’s superb collection of electronica and avant-garde, recall Sisters Of Mercy on late night ITV, take a glance at some high-end music photo galleries, while Bob Stanley collects Sinatra, Ian McCann masks up, David Quantick describes descriptions and Luke Haines arrives not a Dollar short... plus a whole lot more.

Keep collecting, stay safe and many thanks for your continued support of Record Collector.

Laugh of the day....
