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 Torche and Ohio Sky

·    Formed in Miami, Florida, Torche has rocked fans, critics, and stereos alike since their inception in 2004. Referred to as “stoner pop,” “thunder rock,” and “sludge metal,” the band was built around lead vocalist/guitarist, Steve Brooks’ signature “bomb-string” detonation-detune. Their self-titled album, Torche, was declared as the #7 album of 2005 on Decibel magazine’s annual top 40 list. Decibel magazine also ranked the band’s second album, Meanderthal, as #1 on their list in 2008. Their latest album, Harmonicraft, was released in April. The band has toured with Mogwai, Isis, Baroness, and in 2010 they opened for Coheed and Cambria on their tour alongside Circa Survive.

·    Ohio Sky is a Cleveland-based quintet combining indie aesthetics with pounding rock rhythms and pop sensibilities to form a unique concoction as accessible as it is original. They are known for their boundless songwriting, striking imagery, and winning over crowds with their highly energetic live performances. Their visceral, sonic vibrations range from heavy to light, and are always ethereal. Ohio Sky’s honest experimentation with music gives their style a powerful poignancy that’s rare to find in a band.
