The PPL, an alternative acoustic rock band form Whitehorse, toured Western Canada last fall, and is back at it this summer, including a visit to Creston’s Snoring Sasquatch on Aug. 6.

The duo, Rich Jaeger and Marcus Steiner, has released two albums, most recently, The PPL II.

“There’s something dark in all of the songs on this album,” said Steiner. “But there’s something innocent as well. In the end, Rich and I just want to put out music that speaks to a broader audience, music that gets people moving, that can take you on a little trip outside of yourself.

“We are creating the type of music that we want to hear. The kind of music you want to hear. After all, you, me and everyone else are all the PPL.”

Tickets to the Aug. 6 concert are $10 in advance at Kingfisher Used Books, Black Bear Books and Buffalo Trails Coffee House, and $13 ($5 for teens) at the door, which opens at 7; the show starts at 8.
