'Just about having an outlet' - New record store to open in Milford
Punk rock is alive and well in Connecticut, and now it's got a new home in Milford.
After years working with Sony, Jay Reason says he started his Static Era record label to give a voice to the Connecticut hardcore scene that shaped him.
He says the new Static Era store is a way to showcase local acts that would normally be promoting themselves with concerts and tours.
Reason says platforms like YouTube and Soundcloud just don't build community like a local music scene can.
Reason says Static Era will carry a little bit of everything for everyone, but he sees it as a gathering space for Connecticut's DIY artist community.
Static Era is open Fridays and Saturdays from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m.
