Why is Square Square?

Square Records opened August 9th 2003 in the Highland Square area of Akron, Ohio, former rubber capital of the world. We're proud to be part of the unique music and art scene in our home city. Our specialty is new music from independent artists and labels with our main focus on rock. However, we continue to extend our selection into experimental/noise/hip-hop/jazz/classic r&b/soul music, music DVDs and magazines. Square is also the best place in Akron to find vinyl in all genres. New inventory comes in every week and if you are in a local band, we will happily sell your CD/record on consignment.

In the 200 sq ft dedicated gallery space at the back of the store you will find work by local artists in all mediums. Square sponsors art openings nearly every month. Check the What’s happening? page for more information. The space has also been the location of music performances from groups such as The Evens, Six Parts Seven, Make Believe, Houseguest, Don Austin, Teeth of the Hydra and dozens of other bands.
