-Walking Papers is a blues-rock band formed by Jeff Angell and Barrett Martin, two long-serving veterans of the Seattle music scene. Jeff previously sang and played guitar for the bands Post Stardom Depression and "The Mish Posish", and Barrett, a drummer and multi-instrumentalist, played for grunge pioneers Skin Yard and Screaming Trees, as well as the super groups Mad Season and Tuatara.
The band played its first Seattle shows initially as a duo with Jeff on guitar and Barrett on drums, but soon added Duff McKagan on bass to make their official debut as a trio on July 22nd, 2012. Benjamin Anderson brought his keyboard talents from the studio to the live stage, evolving the band into a quartet. Pearl Jam and Mad Season guitarist Mike McCready has been known to make guest appearances on stage as the lead guitar player.
Walking Papers self-titled debut album features a stellar cast of musicians who have each added their own musical voices to the sound: Vocals and Guitar come from Jeff; Drums, Vibraphone and Backing Vocals from Barrett; Electric Bass from Duff McKagan; two blistering guitar solos from Mike McCready; elegant keyboards from Benjamin Anderson, and soulful horn arrangements from Dave Carter (Trumpet), Dan Spalding (Baritone Sax), and Ed Ulman (Trombone). The album was recorded by Catherine Ferrante at Avast Studios in Seattle, and mixed by Jack Endino at Soundhouse in Seattle. Album mastering was done by Chris Hanzsek at Hanzsek Audio.
Walking Papers show that a great song can be conveyed with thundering drums, rumbling bass, and a howling guitar just as easily as it can with percolating marimbas and shimmering vibraphone. The songs on this album can stand alone as individual stories, but taken together as a whole, they convey a much larger narrative with tales of wandering souls, the collisions of will, and the dark beauty of the American heart.

On this pedigree, The Butlers have become known as The Vintage Rock n Roll party on 10 legs (sometimes 12).
Alvie & the Breakfast Pigs
-from San Francisco, CA
-Originally from Tempe, Arizona but now tearing up the mean streets of San Francisco, Alvie & the Breakfast Pigs don’t mess around. We play LOUD in your face rock n’ roll. The End. Our music is best described as fast rock n’ roll with punk blues influences. We like to call it “trash blues”.
Alvie & the Breakfast Pigs third EP, Plastic Surgery, is slated for release in late August 2018.
This record is seeping with snark and aggression, playfulness and annoyance, abdication and heroism. It’s the hurts-so-good breath after a pull of whiskey. It’s BDSM without a safe word. .
