Presenting: The Sub Pop Art Installation, Pop-up Store & Immersive Experience! (at Bumbershoot)

This coming Bumbershoot weekend, September 2nd-4th, Sub Pop Records is fairly well-prepared, and entirely thrilled, to host the above-mentioned Art Installation, Pop-up Store & Immersive Experience - aka Bumberstore - providing a rare glimpse of the unique art, design, culture, and (of courseā€¦) merchandise associated with the label. 

You are right in identifying this as another conveniently located Sub Pop retail experience you have to buy a ticket to get into! (See also Sub Pop’s Airport Store.)

And you may (or may not) now be wondering: Exactly what sort of hocus pocus does it take to turn this…


Into this?


Like the other seven wonders of the world, we began with coffee and donuts (obvs.) Also cold pizza: breakfast of champions and losers alike!


Next, gather your brightest minds, your most idea-ful artists and designers, your typically fairly shiftless staffers. Then, sacrifice one toe. Anyone’s toe will do, however the toe of a department director is sure to stack the deck in your favor.


It takes a village. And also roughly that many pillows…


And the hearts of an entire company. 


Add merch…


And we’re also hoping to sell some records.


Three days won’t be nearly enough time, but it’ll have to do. And we’re super stoked to see you there.


Find the Sub Pop Bumberstore at the International Fountain Pavilion. (there’s a map over here.)

We’ll leave the light on for you.
