Loren Lepre and Mark Devito, of Average Superstar Films, have interviewed many a famous PAHC face for an upcoming documentary on the culture. A benefit show for the producers of the documentary rocks the Lansdale VFW.
There's no real way to define it—Pennsylvania Hardcore just is. It isn't a thing as much as it is a culture. It isn't a genre as much as it is a lifestyle. It isn't a great song as much as it is a brotherhood. PAHC exists—replicating and duplicating, on and on for decades—because millions need it to. This sonic juggernaut is the basis of a documentary by Deptford, NJ resident Loren W. Lepre and Mark Devito, produced by Average Superstar Films. Lepre heads into editing and post-production on Tuesday. This groundbreaking titan PAHC also invades the Lansdale VFW Saturday night, with a benefit show for the documentary, presented by Stay on Point Booking. Lepre said proceeds would be used in post-production and, hopefully, on the festival …

Erica Tolton, Dani Corradetti and Justin Dumke know their destinies are not held in the stars, but in themselves. Shakespeare, whose quote is paraphrased above, would be proud of this week's trio of Montgomeryville-Lansdale Patch Whiz Kids. To be or not to be wasn’t a question at the recent Pennsylvania Shakespeare Festival high school competition at DeSales University in Center Valley. The students in Andrea Roney’s theatre class were either going to win or lose at the festival. They came, they performed, they conquered first place as a team for the highest total combined scores. For all four years of the annual festival, a North Penn High School theatre team has won one of the top three spots. North Penn is the only school to have …
