Carly Rae Jepsen, Nickelback and Hedley all have two things in common with TARL — all are talented songwriters/musicians who call the shores of the Fraser River home.

The local rock group TARL (www.tarlsmusic.com) will be playing a rare hometown show on Saturday, Dec. 22 at Finneganʼs Pub & Grill and they couldnʼt be more excited.

“We always seem to be playing everywhere but here,” commented guitarist Spencer Turpin. “I canʼt wait to hit that stage”.

TARLʼS credits include opening for a myriad of bands including Maroon 5, Train and Nickelback. Add in Canadian and U.S tours, airplay that literally spans the globe and youʼve got yourself a band on the move.

With a collection of songs that range from rock anthems like “The Social” to heart-felt ballads like “One More” itʼs obvious that Finneganʼs will be the only place to be on December 22.

“Weʼre looking forward to being able to play some of our new songs as well as throwing in a few favourites that everyone will know,” says Spencer “This is an all out party, we get to play longer and hopefully louder... donʼt tell Finneganʼs!”

With a stash of songs already started in the studio and shows coming fast and furious, TARL is positioned for some great new adventures in 2013. Call to reserve seating at 604.859.2220 and go check TARL out on online on Facebook and iTunes.
