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 17th 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, and Yuengling.
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.
Nothing puts the spotlight on a local music scene quite like the Lottery League, and to close this year’s Summer in the City Series the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum is proud to present four bands from 2013’s “The Big Show”! Part game show, part circus, part city-wide art project, the Lottery League takes musicians and artists from a local music scene, randomly drafts them into brand new bands, and then gives them two months to collaborate. Uniquely joining rock, to punk, to soul, to hip-hop, to indie, to polka, to any and all, these players are literally drawn from every corner of the musical spectrum far and wide and all thrown into a hopper together. Come see what Scene Magazine has called “One of the greatest music strokes of genius to hit any music scene ever” and watch the Lottery League wrap up its third season here in Cleveland when Queen of Hell, Douglas Adam’s Family, Dinosaur Coffin and Psychic Thrills representing the 2013 Lottery League by taking to the stage in downtown Cleveland and lighting up the city’s skyline like never before.
