This Thursday, KEXP is teaming up with Starbucks and STG for Little Big Show #12 at Neptune Theatre with Cloud Nothings, Tacocat and Chastity Belt! So far, Little Big Show has raised more than $100,000 for non-profits since being conceived in 2012. This time, all ticket sales will go to Teen Tix, which empowers young people to take an active role in shaping their arts community as audience members, critics, influencers, advocates, patrons, and leaders. These are the bands you're going to want to check out this Thursday as you help support Teen Tix:

Cloud Nothings:Cloud Nothings plays low-fi, Buzzcocks-inspired music that reflects the fact that they originated as a solo basement project. Their 2014 release, Here and Nowhere Else, was the band's first record as a trio. But the loss of a guitarist failed to stifle their sound in the slightest. Their hook-driven punk-pop stylings are just as strong as ever and there's no better way to witness that, than in the live setting.

Tacocat: Tacocat is a Seattle band that can make claim to many things. Whether it be the catchiest song about, er..., that time of the month, using dancing sharks before Katy Perry or being one of the most fun bands from Seattle, they have much to brag about. They even have the George Takei seal of approval. A Tacocat show is always a blast, and their Little Big Show set should be no different.

Chastity Belt:Chastity Belt not only share the same label and city of residence with Tacocat but also the same penchant for creating great music. The groups music is a wonderful blend of humor and hazy guitar tones that has them generating major national buzz. Their Little Big Show set will be their last Seattle show before they go on tour to support Courtney Barnett, where they are sure to gain even more notoriety.

Doors are at 7 PM and the show is all ages. Buy tickets here and get more info here.
