It's a symbiotic relationship! You need to rock; Noise for the Needy and their partner Transitional Resources need your money. It's like the tickbird and rhino, if one could play bass and the other could play drums!
Noise for the Needy is a local Seattle non-profit organization whose goal is "raising money for a beneficiary Seattle charity through a series of annual music events which brings musicians, promoters, artists, and volunteers together to support those in need." This year's partner is Traditional Resources, a mental health center and residential program that provides services for people with serious mental illnesses.
Basically, there is no excuse for you to not go check this out, short of being out of town or hospitalized. No ticket is over 20 dollars, you get the warm fuzzy of doing something good for your fellow man, and there are a wide variety of venues, some of them all ages. This year's shows will take place June 10th through 14th. Over 40 bands will be playing this event. Headliners include: 1990s, Art Brut, The Constantines, Point Juncture Wa, Grand Archives, Crystal Antlers, Brent Amaker & the Rodeo, Adam Stephens (Two Gallants) and The Finite Plain, I was a King, New Faces, The Whore Moans, and Throw Me The Statue. More bands are to be announced, and a full lineup is available on the website. Of note, a Three Imaginary Girls staff perennial favorite, Awesome will also be playing.
