Alive is throwing a show Saturday at Skully's, 1151 N. High St., to showcase some hip-hop acts we've been feeling lately.

Summer Hype turns the spotlight on The 3rd, Alleyes Path and P. Blackk, three entirely different sorts of rap artists who've been emanating exciting sounds lately. We rounded up a couple local mainstays to bookend the night. Stretch Lefty will kick things off, and the Liquid Crystal Project will wrap the evening up.

Check back here all week for previews of what to expect, read some feature profiles in Thursday's Alive and make sure to show up at Skully's Saturday to be blown away by these remarkable talents.
