There's not enough space here to pseudo-intellectually parse through what Harvey Danger officially disbanding after this weekend did or never did mean to this town's music scene in the 1990s. So let's move right along to why you should still try to snag a ticket. Harvey Danger's enjoyed fruitful collaborations with a number of more-now bands you love, Seattle-based and beyond Death Cab, the Long Winters, Nada Surf, the Decemberists so the surprise-guest list just might make for a "you hadda be there" moment in the fandom narrative of your life. Harvey Danger's third and final album, Little By Little... is pretty good, largely unheralded and deserving of a posthumous sales bump. Most importantly, it will be admitted here for those who won't admit it themselves: "Flagpole Sitta" is an awesome, perfect song that induces happy-pop head-banging so potently, it's like a drug. Go ahead and get your one last fix. With Sleepy Kitty.
