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.

CLOUD NOTHINGS w/ special guest DEATH OF SAMANTHA TO HEADLINE WRUW'S 31ST ANNUAL STUDIO-A-RAMA SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 8TH
Now in its 31ST year,
Studio-A-Rama is WRUW's annual FREE, outdoor, day-long rock
concert. This year's headliners are Cleveland's own Cloud Nothings. Hot off a hugely acclaimed album, "Attack on
Memory", a performance on "Late Night With Jimmy Fallon", and
international touring and festival appearances, Cloud Nothings will headline
this year's Studio-A-Rama. Led by Dylan Baldi (who performed at Studio-A-Rama
in 2009 with Neon Tongues), and featuring members of local bands such as
Swindlella, Mole People, and Spacer Ace, Cloud Nothings run the gamut from
bright power-pop to abrasive, searing post-hardcore. Catch them in such an
intimate local setting while you still can!
last year's "special guest" pre-headlining performance by Ohio's
Scrawl was such a hit, we're featuring another historic Ohio band as this
year's special guest - Cleveland's own Death of Samantha. A staple in
the local circuit of the 1980s, Death of Samantha are back from a 22-year long
hiatus. After a sellout Beachland Ballroom performance last December, and an
appearance at this year's South By Southwest, Death of Samantha will be
returning to Studio-A-Rama - it's been a long time coming.
WRUW's annual free, outdoor 10 hour rock show, is both a thank you to WRUW
listeners and a testament to WRUW's commitment to live (and free) music.

Rd., Cleveland OH, 44106), outside the studios of WRUW. The full concert

of people, opening for a national headliner. 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
