Tacoma caught of glimpse of the band Walking Papers this past July at the Music & Art in Wright Park festival. Singer/guitarist Jeff Angell (Sedated Souls, Post Stardom Depression, Missionary Position) and drummer Barrett Martin (Skin Yard, Screaming Trees) played their bluesy-rock underneath blue skies to a crowd searching behind the band's stage equipment and around trees. There was a rumor former Guns N' Roses bassist Duff McKagan was to join them, which he had a week earlier in Seattle. Tacoma enjoyed a Duff-less set of soulful guitar rock that day.

Soon, rumors became truth and McKagan was, indeed, in the band, along with Missionary Position keyboardist Benjamin Anderson.

Pure blues rock 'n' roll, executed with the nimble fingers, creative minds and a sixth sense of boys who have been around the block, Walking Papers is headlining a nearly sold out show at Jazzbones Friday. A full European tour follows.
