Rock Back the Clock with 80’s Favorites at Station Square’s New Years Eve!

PITTSBURGH, PA - Station Square is excited to announce its plans for the 5th annual TICK TOCK ROCK, Station Square’s New Year’s Eve bash on Wednesday, December 31st.  This year’s event, sponsored by Miller Lite, features 80’s cheese band Velveeta, and local favorites Good Brother Earl and The Delaney’s.  This year’s headliners, Velveeta, hail from State College, PA, and are known for their “80’s Cheese” music, featuring covers of your favorite songs from the 80s (with some other old favorites thrown in the mix!). 

Starting at 8pm on New Year’s Eve, the FREE street party begins with food and beverages served on Station Square Drive.  For the fifth year in a row, you don’t want to miss out on the awesome view of the Pittsburgh skyline as the backdrop for your New Year’s Eve celebrations as you say goodbye to 2008 and welcome in 2009!

Be Safe – Don’t Drink and Drive!

Station Square wants you to be safe this New Year’s Eve, and encourages you to book a room at the Sheraton Station Square Hotel.  Be sure to reserve your room early, as they tend to sell out quickly for the biggest party night of the year!  For information about hotel reservations at the Sheraton Station Square Hotel, please call 412.261.2000.
