The Clarks in NYC

In July, I did a post on a concert by the great Pittsburgh band The Clarks performed in my hometown of McDonald, PA. I was disappointed to have missed the show that night.

Good things come to those who wait.

Saturday evening, along with a few hundred other members of the 'burgh diaspora, I had the opportunity to see The Clarks live at the Highline Ballroom on West 16th Street here in NYC. It was a good show with some old and new tunes.

One standout was the band's cover of The Beatles' song "Dear Prudence." Here is what it sounded like at another show:

"Born Too Late" -- another favorite:

A young NY/NJ band called Kill the Alarm opened for The Clarks at this show.
