the Rubber City Noise Center for Audio/Visual Experimentation
was our headquarters in downtown Akron. WE ARE CURRENTLY IN WANDERING CAVE MODE.* We are a community arts space run by a core group dedicated to creating, promoting, and supporting art and music in Akron and Northeast Ohio.
We host a regular event on the Second Saturday of every month featuring local and touring musicians and artists. The Second Saturday is a multimedia experience in a flexible and open-minded environment. We host other events throughout the month, you can view our upcoming events under the “Cave Shows” heading on the right.
We’re located at 68 W. Exchange St. in Downtown Akron, on the corner of Exchange St. and Water St. The entrance is on Water St. and we are upstairs. There are several free parking locations around the building and you can store bicycles inside. As we are downtown, access from highways 59, 77, and 8 is close by. See below.
*meaning you can still contact us regarding shows in Akron, although the physical location of manifestation may vary
