9287/1244588929-artbrut_poster.jpgThis year's Noise for the Needy Festival kicks off tomorrow night and invades Seattle's clubs for five nights in a row—over 50 bands are playing a total of 15 shows and all the profits will be donated to Transitional Resources in West Seattle.

Says the NFTN website: "Transitional Resources is a licensed mental health center and residential program located in West Seattle, which offers a full spectrum of optimistic and respectful mental health services to adults with major mental illnesses. The agency was founded in l976 as a residential treatment facility for young adults diagnosed with mental illness. What began as a residential treatment program for fifteen has now grown to include six different programs serving over 200 individuals each year."

Personally, I'm stoked for Throw Me the Statue on Thursday (they better play some of that new stuff they announced last week!), Speaker Speaker and the Whoremoans on Friday, and Black Eyes and Neckties, Loving Thunder, and the Beats, Man on Saturday. But there's a little something for everyone—Adam Stephens of Two Gallants, Grand Archives, Art Brut, Brent Amaker & the Rodeo, Born Anchors... even this month's Emerald City Soul Club is NFTN-affiliated.

The full schedule is after the jump. Visit noisefortheneedy.org to get more information, volunteer, donate, and buy tickets.
