The Spot Downtown Akron

The Spot 
by Brit Charek

I was headed to an event at Uncorked Wine Bar downtown Akron last month when I passed by this sign. I was curious, so I asked around what others had heard about "The Spot."

I was eventually directing to the group's Facebook page, where the organizers of the space describe themselves as "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."

Sounds like fun to me!

On the second Friday of every month, The Spot hosts 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. There's generally a keg of beer available, but guests are encouraged to bring their own drinks.

In order to continue to have these parties and support local artists, The Spot is raising money to establish themselves as a Non-Profit. To learn more or contribute, check out their website at http://www.thespotakron.com

This coming Friday, February 8 is the Spot's next event, featuring artists Trey Berry, Jessica Fatkins and Emily Fatkins. Musical acts include the talented acoustic duo Rachel Roberts and Ryan Beke, Alex Miller and Sí Sí Three (formerly known as the Conway Brothers Trio).

To learn more, check out the Facebook event page or just show up Friday night around 10:30pm at 27 N. High Street downtown Akron.
