37. Henry IV, Part 1
You can keep your Hamlets, your Macbeths, your Kings Lear—the drama of Prince Hal’s apprenticeship to Sir John Falstaff, and of Falstaff’s delusional mentoring of the future king is Shakespeare’s most emotionally resonant dramatic achievement. It’s about the way people love and betray themselves and each other. It’s a story of family, transformation, and loyalty, of fathers and sons both logical and biological. It’s about how people reconcile themselves to the rewards and requirements of honor. (It’s also the source of the old adage about discretion and valor, PS.) There’s a LOT of Shakespeare available to Seattle audiences this summer, and by all means, see as much as you can. But start with the first of the three essential Henry plays, because, as Hotspur reminds us, “the time of life is short; to spend that shortness basely were too long." SEAN NELSON

72. Great Falls, Smooth Sailing, Yellfire
A less creative person might call Seattle’s Great Falls a “power trio.” But what specific power would that be referring to? The power of amplification, maybe. Great Falls certainly like their grinding noise rock loud. The power of evil is another option. Listening to them might make one feel inclined to do something naughty: stay out too late, drink too much, commit some light arson. Let’s settle on the power of musicianship and attitude. Led by scene stalwart Demian Johnston, with Shane Mehling on bass and Phil Petrocelli on drums, Great Falls sound like a very consternated office manager exorcising all of his or her personal demons at once through a megaphone.

(Ballard, $10)

109. Eternal Summers
Eternal Summers are capable practitioners of Non-Offensive Rock Music, or NORMcore, if you will. Though their tunes borrow from harder-edged, messier styles like noise pop and punk, the rough spots have been smoothed down, sanded into palatable pop nuggets between two and four minutes in length. Singer Nicole Yun remains the most memorable thing on offer, with a durable mezzo-soprano that effortlessly glides over the distorted melee beneath and bends impressively around the occasionally hummable chorus. But unlike, say, Yuck, a band with a similar penchant for deceptively safe fuzz rockers, the hooks just don’t stick. Which is really the most offensive thing of all, for a band that lives or dies on the strength of its earworms. KYLE FLECK
