A madness of the Soccer—or if you prefer, futbol—variety has taken the city of Seattle in pandemic proportions since the 2007 inclusion of the Seattle Sounders FC to the Professional Soccer Society of American Gentlemen (MLS). During the soccer season, everywhere you turn in Seattle, you find yourself surrounded well-educated hooligans, who likely work in the tech industry, wrapped in blue and green-striped scarves chanting indecipherable nonsense in unison and ordering a plain ol’ donut without the Sounders’ colors sprinkled on it becomes a nearly impossible task.
Today, we at Sub Pop are helping to stoke that intense fervor by putting one of our most exciting bands, The Helio Sequence, in front of thousands upon thousands of Seattle Sounders fans near the stadium as the band leads the crowd in the “March to the Match” where the Sounders will play West Coast rivals the L.A. Galaxy.
If you don’t have tickets to the game, but you do want to see The Helio Sequence play a free show, head down to Century Link field and see them play in the parking lot at 4:20 today (let’s save the weed jokes for a different blog post, please).
More info on the location here.
Come for the The Helio Sequence, stay for the Sounders.
