Smoky, Tom Waitsey vocals? Astronomy in jokes? Occasional reminders that everyone in the room is headed six feet under? Hey, my latest Grit City Bootleg subject must be Tacoma’s John Walker & the Hitchhikers. You know, in case you didn’t glean that from the headline. Click the links to hear clips from last night’s gig at the New Frontier Lounge.

John Walker (top) showcased his existential brand of pop last night at the New Frontier Lounge. And, OK, we get it Bobby Galaxy. You know how to play a bunch of instruments. But rocking a washboard tie solo just seems like showing off.
