To kick off the celebration of Sub Pop Records 25th anniversary
, Mudhoney played a live set on top of the Space Needle today. Performance begins at about 21:00.
Obligatory Sub Pop wikipedia link.
Aside from being inextricably linked with Seattle and grunge in the early 90's, Sub Pop has continued to be an important record label in an era of the declining importance of record labels, continuing to promote new, relevant, and diverse artists
throughout their history.
KEXP, long associated with Sub Pop, hosted a Sub Pop-centered day today including interviews with artists, founders, and engineers associated with the label's 25 year history. The entire thing is streamable here
Sub Pop is following this up on Saturday July 13 by hosting a free day long outdoor festival with 3 stages in Georgetown featuring some 21 current and former artists including Mudhoney, Built to Spill, J Mascis, Father John Misty, The Catheters, and Shabazz Palaces. Sadly, no Flight of the Conchords or Nirvana reunion.
