WRUW is proud to announce that the legendary MISSION OF BURMA will be headlining WRUW's 28th annual Studio-A-Rama!!!

 

Now in its 28th year, Studio-A-Rama is WRUW's annual FREE, outdoor, day-long rock concert.  This year's headliners is Boston 's post-punk pioneers Mission Of Burma!!! 

 

Mission Of Burma have been releasing music since 1979, including 1983's legendary "Vs.".  After an almost 20 year hiatus, Mission Of Burma returned to issue 2002's "OnoffON" and 2006's "The Obliterati".  Their newest release "The Sound, The Speed, The Light" is set to be released in October, so expect Mission Of Burma to play some new songs from that release as well as songs from their classic catalog.

 

Studio-A-Rama, WRUW's annual free, outdoor 10 hour rock show, is both a thank you to WRUW listeners and a testement to WRUW's commitment to live (and free) music.  The concert begins at 2:00PM in the Mather Memorial Courtyard (11220 Bellflower Rd. , Cleveland OH , 44106), outside the studios of WRUW.  The full concert line-up is as follows:

 

 2:00PM - Chief Bromide (noisy guitar rock)

 3:00PM - Neon Tongues (punky garage pop)

 4:00PM - Flowers In Flames (dark psychedelic goth rock)

 5:00PM - Uno Lady (solo voice manipulation)

 6:00PM - The Kyle Sowashes (indie pop from Columbus )

 7:00PM - Mike St. Jude and the Valentines (rock'n'roll)

 8:00PM - Kid Tested (noisy power pop)

 9:00PM - Megachurch (dual bass driving rock with tape loops)

 10:00PM to Midnight - MISSION OF BURMA !!!

The entire show shall be simulcast over 15,000 watts ( Ohio 's most powerful college radio station) on 91.1 FM, and also webcast around the world on www.wruw.org.

Studio-A-Rama also demonstrates WRUW's commitment to local and regional music, giving 7 bands the opportunity to play before hundreds of people, opening for a national headliner.  Again, all bands will be heard over the radio at 91.1FM and over the internet at www.wruw.org.

Since 1982, WRUW has staged this free annual concert designed to thank listeners for their ongoing support throughout the year, and especially during WRUW's annual telethon.  An enthusiastic audience response during the annual on-air fundraiser enables WRUW to continue hosting Studio-A-Rama as well as fund live webcasting and support local music and live music.  Studio-A-Rama is one part of WRUW-FM's commitment to broadcasting local bands live. The "Live From Cleveland" show broadcasts bands from the WRUW-FM studios every Thursday evening from 10 until 11pm, and WRUW also simulcasts the live music from the main stage of the annual Hessler St. Fair.
