It's that time of year when the weather warms up, summer hits its stride, and the Erie County Fair opens in Hamburg. This August, as usual, the fair has a powerful musical lineup to fit all tastes, including superstars Mary Chapin Carpenter, Brooks and Dunn and aging shock rocker Alice Cooper.

Alice Cooper rose to fame in the early 1970s with such hits as "Eighteen", "School's Out" and "No More Mr. Nice Guy". He appears at the fair with the Scorpions next Friday at 8 p.m.
