Intern Blog: Blitzen Trapper at The Mural


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.

Be sure to check out more shows at The Mural in the next few weeks (Especially the one on 8/21, featuring Fruit Bats and Hardly Art friends The Moondoggies).

If you feel like checking out more of my photos, you can find them here.
