Saturday, Nov. 21

Sure, you can find beats anywhere on a Saturday. Rappers and DJs abound in Erie, but what you really want to hear are the professionals: true artists whose poetry touches you and who can lay down a sound that’s original and funky. The performers at the Victory Show have you covered. Hot Mess Productions and Stay Focused For The Future will bring live music from Mike Jones & Band, Miguel, Cordel, Shok Jordan, C.Brown, DJ Tony, DJ Salt, and Shai Boogie to the Warner Theatre. It’ll be anything but your typical Saturday afternoon party.

This all-ages show also features special performances from Erie Dance Theater. Plus guest speakers Bob Merski and Elvage Murphy — who, along with Stay Focused, are doing what they can to raise up the next generation of leaders for our community. Stay Focused’s mentoring programs motivate our youth to set them on a positive course that will aid them in becoming successful. It’s a positive message with a different method. — Bryan Toy

Now serving up good vibes on State Street

Fighting for change in our most vulnerable communities.

Running into a blazing building can be ‘terrifying,’ but some choose to do it, anyway. 

Here are three good opportunities to lighten up as the nights grow longer.

Dancing Wheels bring a world premiere to Mercyhurst.

Shapeshift With Me, relative to the band’s spectacular catalog as a whole, is certainly one of their less powerful studio albums.

Grate every road in downtown Erie all at once.

Some ‘multigrain’ bread has a little more protein than you’d like. 

Don’t just dream it. Be it!

If De Palmas trip down memory lane whets your appetite, come back to the museum for one of his most underrated movies a week later.
