The Clarks rocked -- by real rocks -- at Big Butler Fair

Rocks are what The Clarks encountered Friday night performing at the Big Butler Fair in Prospect on Bike Night.

Someone in the crowd hurled rocks at the stage striking singer Scott Blasey and hitting drummer Dave Minarik in the head. The people responsible were apprehended and removed from the concert.

"Just another fun-lovin' Clarks show," one band member said.

A few Clarks fans consoled the band on Twitter:

@Stephanie41701J: @scottblasey Was great tonight, even though he had to stop because of people throwing rocks at him and all the fights! @theclarks

@Pachaskle: @theclarks I am so sorry. Butler county doesn't deserve you. Great show otherwise!!

The Clarks play Stage AE on July 12 with Jimmer Podrasky, four days after releasing their new album, "Feathers & Bones."
