Let Winter Drive You Mad at PACA with a Party by Alex Bieler
Eric Brewer & Friends

Winter weather can drive people a little crazy, especially when it arrives much earlier than expected. In fact, someone should tell Mother Nature that the first day of winter isn’t officially until Dec. 21. But Erie’s seasons don’t really work that way, so we should learn to embrace the cold and find good reasons to congregate in warm indoor areas – like the Winter Madness Party at PACA.

“What’s the Winter Madness Party” you ask? It’s just a crazy-good lineup of local rock stars that will leave you feeling warm and fuzzy from 5 to 10 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 7 at PACA. The event offers up a talented group of five bands, with Eric Brewer and Friends, Smackdab, Falling Hollywood, Daybreak Radio, and Potwhole, all ready to have your ears ringing in the holidays. Adults can also treat their taste buds with Lavery Brewery’s fine fare available with a donation and snacks provided by The Cookielady.

You can’t stop winter, so you might as well embrace the crazy weather. The Winter Madness Party is an excellent excuse to brave the potential frost burn and head to PACA for a night keeping warm – and happy – with the music-loving community. 

5 to 10 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 7 // 1505 State St. // paca1505.com

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.
