TAR is back! At least one gig confirmed.

For at least one gig, that is - the PRF BBQ 2012 open-to-the-public event in Chicago with about a bajillion bands playing, all friends of Electrical Audio to a degree (Steve Albini's studio) and members of the PRF.

Details here.

The details were slowly developing on the band's Facebook page (sudden meetups for practices, etc) and now it's official.

Oh to be in Chicago for this...!  I've seen Tar at least twice and twice wasn't nearly enough.  Fantastic live band and they're back!

Goers, report back.

Tangentially related to this month's theme - Tar's first full-length LP was recorded by none other than Iain Burgess.


  1. I had the privilege of seeing Tar way back in the 90s when a hardcore band from Devon I was roadying for supported them in Newport (South Wales). A dead good live band, if I remember correctly.

  2. A post of Tar's out-of-print Roundhouse CD could be a way to celebrate the event, couldn't it ?

  3. I wasn't there, but at least you can see some of what you missed...

    Also, there's a free audio dl.
