Instead of hashing out the history of how this event came to be, the Jambrain blog has an excellent piece on the subject and a bio of Jimmy D from the band Jones for Revival.

Here's a clip of Jones for Revival playing at the Chevy Center:

Valley 24 does a nice job of featuring all the entertainment at the event, which includes magicians, comedians, djs, and acoustic acts in between the 12 bands (listed below) playing from 2pm to 2am this Saturday. From the article:
“I’m really excited that we can be a part of the revitalization of downtown Youngstown, whether it’s Youngstown 2010 or 2020,” DeCapua says. “...It’d be sweet if everyone came out and had a great time. We’re trying to give back, support the scene.”
