The summer just got a whole lot louder with the kick off of the 2013 Rockstar Energy UPROAR Festival. The roving rock 'n’ roll spectacle, now in its fourth year, has quickly become one of the most anticipated tours of the summer for rock fans. This year’s trek rolled into the Comcast Theatre in Hartford, Conn., on Saturday, Aug. 10 for an all-day rock marathon.
Seattle is a cornucopia of musical talent, especially in the rock genre so it’s no surprise that a band like Walking Papers would emerge from the Emerald City. Featuring bassist Duff McKagan (Guns N’ Roses, Velvet Revolver) and drummer Barrett Martin (Screaming Trees, Mad Season), as well as singer-guitarist Jeff Angell and keyboardist Benjamin Anderson (both of the band the Missionary Position), the members of Walking Papers have impressive resumes, to say the least.
