MIKAL CRONIN w/ special guest MIRRORS to headline WRUW's 32nd Annual Studio-A-Rama Saturday Sept 7
Neal Dare Waves

Now in its 32ND year, Studio-A-Rama is WRUW's annual FREE, outdoor, day-long rock concert.  This year's headliner is Mikal Cronin.  Hailing from San Francisco, psychedelic/power-pop auteur Mikal Cronin has released two albums, his self-titled debut LP and this year's "MCII", his first on Merge Records.  Taking late sixties influences and filtering them through California fuzz, Mikal's music balances sweet melodies and chords with chunky psychedelic freak outs.  Although Mikal plays all the instruments on his records, he tours with a full band behind him.  Mikal Cronin has appeared on Conan O'Brien, and has performed at SXSW and Pitchfork Festival.  WRUW is proud to present Mikal Cronin as this year's Studio-A-Rama headliner.

 

Continuing our run of "special guest" pre-headlining performances (Scrawl in 2011, Death of Samantha last year), WRUW is proud to present another historic Ohio band as this year's special guest - Mirrors.  Formed in 1972(!), Mirrors were one of a pioneering group of Cleveland bands (along with Rocket From The Tombs, The Styrenes, and Electric Eels) that defined a Cleveland "punk" sound even before the likes of Pere Ubu, Devo, and The Pagans.  Taking their cue from the Velvet Underground, Frank Zappa, and Captain Beefheart, Mirrors delivered a DIY pre-punk sound that was years ahead of its time.  Mirrors last performed on the Mather Memorial Courtyard stage in 1975 - after 38 years, Mirrors return to Studio-A-Rama.

 

In addition to Mika Cronin and Mirrors, Studio-A-Rama will also features local acts:

        Obnox (8PM)

        Goldmines

        Home and Garden

        Blaka Watra

        Ma Holos

        Smooth Brain

        Sh*tbox Jimmy

        Tuk 2

        Wingtones (1PM)

 

Studio-A-Rama, 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, free music.  The concert begins at 1:00PM in the Mather Memorial Courtyard (11220 Bellflower Rd., Cleveland OH , 44106 ), outside the studios of WRUW.  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 bands the opportunity to play before hundreds 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 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, the Cleveland Institute of Art's Summer Solstice, and Weapons of Mass Creation.

CLOUD NOTHINGS w/ special guest DEATH OF SAMANTHA TO HEADLINE WRUW'S 31ST ANNUAL STUDIO-A-RAMA SATURDAY SEPTEMBER 8TH
Neal Dare Waves

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!

Since 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.

Studio-A-Rama, 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.  The concert begins at 1:00PM in the Mather Memorial Courtyard (11220 Bellflower Rd., Cleveland OH, 44106), outside the studios of WRUW.  The full concert line-up is as follows:

1:00PM - The Lawton Brothers (rootsy guitar rock)

2:00PM - R. A. Washington and the Family Dollar (9-piece R&B outfit with rock influences)

3:00PM - Gossip Culture (electro synth suave rock)

4:00PM - Library Time (upbeat indie rock)

5:00PM - Pleasure Leftists (post-punk inspired leftist rock)

6:00PM - Village Bicycle (all female indie pop)

7:00PM - Dreadful Yawns (guitar rock)

8:00PM - Herzog Yawns (catchy power pop/rock)

9:00PM - Cleveland legends Death Of Samantha

10:30PM to Midnight - Headliners Cloud Nothings

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.
