{John Vanderslice at the Tractor, Noise for the Needy 2010}

It’s that time of year again, where the fine folks over at Noise for the Needy get together a slew of stellar shows to benefit a local non-profit. This year the funds are being raised for Real Change, and suffice it to say, there’s bands out there to suit every taste — the Fucking Eagles, Mal de Mer, the Builders and the Butchers, Drew Grow, Goldfinch, Fresh Espresso — scroll down for more! The list quite literally goes on and on.

Rather than wax poetic about the details, we’ll just give you the quick & dirty lineup with links to venues and tickets so you can go and get your charity on. And away we go!
