Going Down Perimeter Road

Many, many to thank for the year's successes at our student-led record label

The last two semesters have been quite a journey for Perimeter Road Sound Recordings and its members.

Not only did we record and release a full length album by our newest addition to the PRSR lineup, The Churros (marking the fourth band release for the label!), but we also planned and executed the first-ever Perimeter Road Music Festival right on Parkland College’s campus! So much effort went into both projects, and we want to thank many people, groups, and organizations for making this year for Perimeter Road a success.

First off, a big thanks to the wonderful acts for the music festival: Elsinore, Zorila, Nectar, The Data Waves, Matt & Cubs, Prevalence, and The Churros. We could not have asked for a better debut; you all did an awesome job, and we were so honored to have such a talented lineup for our first music festival. From all of us at Perimeter Road Sound Recordings, thank you so much for giving us the opportunity to try something new, and we can’t wait to give it another go soon!

Another huge thanks to MMS Rentals for giving us a stage to stand on, sound systems to use, and professional guidance on the part of Geoff from MMS. There is a lot that goes into stage setup and mixing live sound, so big props to MMS for being ready and willing to take us through it, step by step. We couldn’t have done this without you. Additional thanks to WCIA’s “ciLiving” show for inviting us to share our organization with your audience; we love what you guys do for our community!

Of course, none of this could have been possible without Parkland College and its staff and student body. Since the inception of the label in 2016, we have been supported by the college nonstop and were given all the resources we needed to succeed. What more can we say about our home? We love it here at Parkland; it’s awesome.

It has been an awesome year. And we can’t wait to show everyone what we have in store for next year. Until then, stay tuned here at Perimeter Road!
