Weekend Entertainment | A Concert to Eclipse All Others

An extremely rare event will soon happen in northeastern Ohio.

It’s a once in a lifetime spectacle that occurs only when the stars align, and the magnitude of it could be blinding. You’ll need eye protection.

We are, of course, referring to Saturday’s 330 Day concert at The Kent Stage.

And we are, of course, exaggerating: You won’t need shades.

The concert, presented by The Summit 90.7 FM, brings together The 330’s finest rock artists every year on March 30 (which is 3/30).

Because The Kent Stage is kind of small, they’re doing the concert twice this year: at 3:30 p.m. (there’s that number again) and 7 p.m.

Hundreds of Mahoning Valley folks will be there, and if you don’t already have a ticket, you’re out of luck. It’s sold out.

The lineup includes Red Wanting Blue, Munnycat, Angela Perley, Jack Harris, Hunter Skeens and the Forerunners and Megan Bee.

It will be a rare sighting of Munnycat – the duo of Youngstown natives Khaled Tabbara and Katianne Timko.

The two are based in LA, where they make music that is the sonic equivalent of a dozen Krispy Kremes topped with raspberry gelato.

In an email, they intimated that their show might surprise some folks.

“We’ll def be bringing the hip-hop, hyperpop and indie pop,” they said. “But we are [also] going to do a few variant versions of songs to keep in the acoustic spirit of the show.”

Their set list will lean heavily on their songs that have gotten airplay on The Summit, “to celebrate how awesome” the station is. “They are just so supportive of artists and that always warms our hearts,” the duo said. “We love them dearly.” 

Munnycat last played in northeastern Ohio in 2018, and they are excited for the chance to catch up with fans and fellow artists.

“The rest of the musicians on the bill are some of our faves, so I’m sure there will be some cameos in our set – and we might hop over and join some others,” they said.

If you miss Saturday’s show, don’t fret. Munnycat will be back in the fall as part of a tour to promote their new record.

This is Easter weekend, and the entertainment calendar is a tad light for that reason. The Youngstown Phantoms hockey team is in town for home games at Covelli Centre at 7:05 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and Black Wolf & The Thief will play an afternoon show (2 to 5 p.m.) at Birdfish Brewing in Columbiana.

But there is one other highlight, and it is also almost as rare as an eclipse.

The Grand Ballet of Kyiv will perform the classic piece “Giselle” tonight at 7 p.m. at Powers Auditorium.

The outstanding troupe is touring the U.S., carrying on the art and culture of Ukraine as their homeland is fighting for its sovereignty against the invading Russian Army.

It’s a must-see event. Learn more HERE.
