If you need to catch up with the local music scene in a hurry -- or just keep up with it, if you're already up to speed -- you're going to want to grab the new, third Local Shakedown CD compilation. Coming Friday, October 16 from Smooch Records, the double-disc bonanza features 41 songs from local artists and a cover from our very own Noah Van Sciver. Amongst those 41 tracks are a bunch of unreleased tracks, including a few exclusive to this CD such as d. biddle's entry, "You Are the Sea."

All that music will set you back $11.90 (see what they did there?) at Wax Trax, Twist & Shout or Bart's CD Cellar, who are collectively co-releasing the comp. Each of those locations is also hosting a release party with live music from some of the featured bands over the release weekend. Hit the jump for a full schedule of events and a tracklisting.
