Local Music, KEXP Suggests

Each year, Noise for the Needy raises money for Seattle charities – which in the past included Teen Feed, Urban Rest Stop, Roots Youth Shelter and Music for America – through a series of concerts and events. The 2013 festival takes over Ballard this week and benefits Ballard Food Bank, which for the past 40 years has served more than 1,000 households each week and aims to bring food to those in need in the Ballard, Magnolia and Queen Anne neighborhoods.

This year, Noise for the Needy runs June 20th through June 23rd at Tractor Tavern, Conor Byrne and Hattie’s Hat and features Said The Whale, Battleme, Orgone, Polyrhythmics, “JD and The Schmitty Boys”, Julia Massey and The Five Finger Discount, Kris Orlowski, Hot Bodies In Motion, River Giant, Smokey Brights, Kris Orlowski and many others. Capping off the great weekend of music will be an all-ages family show on Sunday at the new outdoor venue and beer garden Hattie’s Party Lot, behind Hattie’s Hat.
