concert season 2009 kicks off saturday with sköllapalooza (and a neighborhood cleanup too)

First off, there will be a neighborhood clean-up this saturday on April 25th in the south-east side of the city, just adjacent to Struthers.

It starts at 9:30am and the meeting point will be at the intersection of Neilson Ave and Pointview in the Buckeye neighborhood.

If you haven't attended a spring cleaning event yet this year, this would be a good chance to enjoy the sunshine and lend a hand.

The grassroots folks putting this together could use the help - no matter where in the Mahoning Valley you are from.

And so the 2009 season of multi-band concert events kicks off this Saturday with Sköllapalooza.

The group behind this effort really brought together a great lineup, from funk to soul to jam to balls-out powerpop - should be a fun evening to stay all night at the B&O station downtown.

bands start at 7pm and go through 1am and include favs such as:

- The Kellys (listen here)
- Winslow (listen here)
- Jahman Brahman (listen here)
- Nick Funyak and the Resonance (listen here)
- Phoenix Rising (listen here)

check out these videos for what to expect:

Tickets are $10 and can be pre-purchased for the next few days at Kilcawley Center at YSU downtown.

Also, for you thirsty ones, beverages will be provided by Superior Beverage and Rust Belt Brewery will be flowing in the B&O station.

Here are some picts from the 100 year old plus venue:

All profits, every single penny, from this year's festivities will be invested into next year's event.

So it's not just an investment for one night - it's an investment for next year as well.

Help seed the future by checking out Sköllapalooza this Saturday.
