Live Around Town This Week

In addition to the ongoing KEXP Summer Membership Drive going on this week, it’s also time for the annual Noise For The Needy concerts. For those unfamiliar, Noise For The Needy is a Seattle-based nonprofit organization that raises money for charitable causes through the production of live music shows. This year all proceeds will benefit Real Change, a charity that provides opportunity and a voice for low-income and homeless people while taking action for economic justice. We’ve noted some of the performances below; however, for a full list of events and to purchase tickets you should really click here.
