Web Exclusive: Hip-Hop is Here to Stay by Alex Bieler
William Powell

As you might have seen, there's this really great new cover story about the renaissance of Erie's hip-hop scene. However, unless you decided to read the story aloud, you might not have really heard the scene quite yet.

Given the amount of talented local MCs, we thought that it would be quite nice of us to nudge you in the right direction. That being typed, we provide you with a litter of links, providing both Reverbnation and Soundcloud pages, as well as videos. Think of it as your playlist as you read our latest cover story. Unless you already read it, which means you must be pretty cool.

The Art of Patricia Kearney: Selected Work 1975-2013

Erie Man Returns to Troubled Homeland to Document Crisis

No Second Guessing The New Depression starts with circus-like fanfare, but there's no funny business after that – only serious rhymes layered upon thick, jazzy samples that don't neglect the booming bottom-end we all appreciate.

If you are an inveterate fan of New Jersey pop-punk quartet The Gaslight Anthem, you will likely be disappointed or at least befuddled by their latest release.

After releasing their debut album back in 2011, Buffalo-quartet The Albrights return with their self-titled sophomore release, and the results are as catchy as ever.

The sole founding members of Spoon have mastered the art of piecing together separate sonic parts to create a memorable whole, carefully constructing songs with basic elements before adding special touches through audio engineering tricks to dazzle all of the headphone listeners out there.

German Heritage Festival, Zabawa Polish Festival, and the Erie County Fair -- all happening in two weeks!

Unicorns and vampires? FILM's got you covered, Erie.

Two nights, two killer shows: Chrome Moses w/ Daybreak Radio, and The Burning River Ramblers at King’s Rook Club.

Seventy years ago, three Erie brothers gave the ultimate sacrifice.
