Hello Sub Pop fans. I’m Katy McCourt-Basham, Radio Intern. This is my first Sub Pop photo blog.
Not all too long ago, Sub Pop gave me a break from stuffing envelopes to bandage my papercuts, get some sun, and check out Blitzen Trapper’s free show at The Mural Amphitheater in Seattle Center (presented by KEXP).
I got there a half hour or so before the show started and spots on the lawn were already hard to come by. Folks of all ages had already claimed their seats (or beer-drinkin’ spots behind the fence) and were eagerly waiting for the show to start.
Throw Me The Statue opened with a killer set, playing well-loved songs like “Lolita” as well as material from their new album Creaturesque.
Next, Blitzen Trapper hit the stage, and the crowd got some dancing going right away. They played a pretty long set, including older material (such as “Furr”, one of my favorite songs) and newer material (like songs from their Black River Killer EP, out 8/25). It was a great time, and by the end almost everyone was in on the dance party.
