The lyric that stands out this week is “I need some music, and a cocktail, please.” Community Noise can help with the music — the entire show is gripping, slippery, and awfully fun to drink in. We say goodbye to Little Richard, Florian Schenider, and Seattle’s great Bop Street Records. Filling in the cracks we have some Olympia punk, some British post-punk, avant-garde, hip hop, and other stuff. Other stuff!
