This is the summer to rock, and Summer in the City, the Rock Hall’s FREE live concert series, returns this season to the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum. Beginning on Wednesday, July 11th some of the country’s most buzzed about up and coming artists will perform on the Museum plaza (weather permitting, if necessary it will be moved inside to the Main Stage), and concessions will be available for purchase from the Museum and local food trucks on the plaza, as well. Summer in the City is sponsored by KeyBank, Jim Beam, Yuengling and Panasonic Automotive.

Each Summer in the City artist or band has been invited to blog on rockhall.com/blog to share their experiences with fans: how they got started, their inspirations, their aspirations for the future and what their thoughts are on performing in Cleveland at the Museum.                                              

About Cloud Nothings and Herzog

 

Cloud Nothings have gone from making lo-fi indie rock in a parent’s basement in 2009 to releasing an EP, a handful of singles, a compilation album and two studio albums of new material, as well as touring North America and Europe, where their live performances showcase songs full of energy and precision. In 2010, the band recorded in Baltimore’s famed Copycat Building (home to the original Wham City and many of the city’s best musicians). The resulting self-titled album released in 2011 featured group founder Dylan Baldi playing all of the instruments. The band released the critically acclaimed Attack on Memory, which was engineered by Steve Albini, in early 2012 and performed at SXSW in March. Cloud Nothings have been featured in Rolling Stone, Spin and the New York Times.

Cleveland-based band Herzog is an indie rock band consistently compared to iconic bands in the pantheon of ‘90’s “slacker rock” acts. Their arrangements are beautifully complex and catchy, and the instrumentation ideally and intelligently complements the lyrics of each song. The band’s new album, Cartoon Violence, is their first full-length since their 2010 album, Search, and embraces sounds ranging from 1970s FM radio ballads, McCartney-esque pop stylings and straightforward power-pop. They have received positive reviews for their albums from the likes of NME, Pitchfork, and NPR’s All Songs Considered.
