On Wednesday, Dec. 1 at 5:30 p.m., Stage AE will host a free community open house to give Northsiders a chance to see the facility before it opens to the public for concerts this weekend.

The Muddy Kreek Blues Band will perform during the open house, and Stage AE will accept donations to support music instruction in Northside Schools.

Stage AE is located on North Shore Drive next to Heinz Field and is being operated by PromoWest. The facility’s first show, Girl Talk, will run Dec. 3 and Dec. 4.  For more information on upcoming shows or to purchase tickets, go to http://promowestlive.com/pittsburgh/.
