Mudhoney & Sera Cahoone are Playing ON TOP of the G-D Space Needle!


In very remarkable news, Sub Pop artists, Mudhoney, J Mascis (J’s flight was unfortunately delayed and he will not be able to perform today) and Sera Cahoone are playing ON TOP of Seattle’s iconic Space Needle tomorrow, July 11th accompanying a remote broadcast by our dear friends at KEXP. From 12-5:30PM tomorrow, KEXP DJs John Richards and Kevin Cole will broadcast live from the Space Needle’s observation deck, jamming some Sub Pop tunes and generally kicking off the Sub Pop Silver Jubilee weekend with the rare sort of aplomb that posting up for the day on top of the Space Needle can bring.

The entire event will culminate in the first-ever live music performances from atop the Space Needle featuring solo sets from J Mascis and Sera Cahoone, and a fully plugged-in performance from Mudhoney. You will be able to live-stream video and audio from the broadcast via all day tomorrow TODAY!

There will also be interview highlights from label founder Bruce Pavitt, Soundgarden’s Kim Thayil, photographer Charles Peterson, and legendary producer Jack Endino. Also, I’m told that there will be surprises.

The Postal Service | Some Idealistic Future (Documentary)

Right on the heels of their inside look at the sounds of Washed Out, the good folks at The Creators Project created what we think is a pretty damn wonderful documentary about our own Postal Service. Take a few minutes and watch the band wax nostalgic about the creation of their now legendary record,Give Up, you’ll probably feel pretty good afterward—these songs have that effect. This record means an awful lot to us, and it means even more that it seems to mean so much to so many other people, too—The Creators Project included.
