In honor of “330 Day,” 33 Northeast Ohio musicians will take the Akron Civic Theatre stage for acoustic performances as part of the third annual 330 Day Concert, Friday, March 30.
Doors open at 6 p.m. and the free show begins at 7 p.m. Hosted by The Summit FM and 330.net, the event will feature stripped-down, acoustic performances from a veritable who’s who of Northeastern Ohio musicians, including (in no particular order) Brian Lisik, Ledges, The Kidney Brothers, Tracey Thomas, Stems, Zach, Marc Lee Shannon, Yankee Bravo, Shooter Sharp & The Shootouts, Demos Papadimas, Madison Cummins, Coup de Grace, The Speedbumps, The Cave Twins (David Mayfield & Abby Rose), The Labra Brothers, Run Thomas Run, The Royal Vasa, A Band Named Ashes, Alexis Antes, DreamStates, The Vindys, Rick Deak, White Buffalo Woman, Cody J. Martin, Flight 619, Nick Wilkinson, By Light We Loom, Jeff Klemm & The Letters, Hey Monea, The Ohio Weather Band, Angie Haze, French Donkey and The Beyonderers.
The Civic stage will be split in half for this event, offering two side-by-side performance spaces. While one group is performing, another will set up on the opposite side of the stage. The stage lights will alternate back and forth as each act plays one acoustic song.
The event happens exactly one week after the end of the Summit’s Spring Membership Drive, which will take place on-air from March 18 through the 23, and will raise funds for the continued operation of this nonprofit, member-supported public radio station.
Summit members will receive preferred seating for this event, and may RSVP via an invitation-only event page.
Although admission is free, a $10 donation is suggested and all ages are welcome. The Akron Civic Theater is located at 182 S. Main St. in downtown Akron.
The event is produced by Akron singer-songwriter and Summit Marketing & Event Coordinator Ryan Humbert, who most recently produced the successful “Won’t Back Down: A Tribute to Tom Petty” event at Akron’s EJ Thomas Hall.
