The week of December 27 - January 2 was a very exciting one for the City of Pittsburgh. Monday, the 27th, started an all week fan fest for the 2011 Winter Classic, which even with the sad loss to the Capitals, was an amazing showcase of our city.

On Wednesday, December 29th, another milestone was met for the popular local rock band The Clarks. They played their 2000th show at the new Stage AE on the North Shore of Pittsburgh. I was on-site to cover the occasion, and an awesome one it was at that!

They came out strong starting with Shimmy Low which got the whole crowd dancing right away. Their set just kept building strong, with old favorites, like Penny On The Floor, being played early on as well.

I grew up with The Clarks and I have probably seen them more than 20 times. In high school, my friends and I would go see them at all of the local festivals, and once in college we would go see them wherever we could. It definitely brought back awesome memories seeing them play again, as it has been awhile.

The Clarks 2000th show was a definite success! Lucky for them, they only had to wait 3 days until they logged their 2001st show, which was an appearance during the first and second period of the 2011 NHL Winter Classic at Heinz Field. I was one of the lucky 70,000 in attendance, and having The Clarks play was a great accomplishment for them, and the city. Here's to 2000 more!
