City of Music Internship is a unique opportunity for individuals who
are interested in the music industry and its many moving gears. Two
interns will be accepted per a 12-month program, which is divided into
four internship experiences with four different businesses. Interns will
spend three months at each business.
Thetwo interns will work with KEXP, a Seattle-based non-profit radio
station; Seattle Theater Group (STG), a non-profit arts organization
which operates historic theaters; Sub Pop Records, a legendary record
label that has been signing artists and selling records since 1988; and
Rhapsody, an online music service. Each of these organizations will have
a point supervisor for the three-month duration that the intern is with
the company. Interns will work at each respective organization for a
three-month period, with a week in-between each phase of the internship.
The goal of the City of Music Internship is to work with capable and
interested individuals to better their understanding of how different
organizations in Seattle work directly with artists, and how each of the
companies market and support the artists’ vision and careers. By
bringing interested people into a diverse learning experience, we intend
to foster talent into Seattle’s music industry. Furthermore, we hope
that every individual who completes the program will come away from the
internship with a broadened perspective on Seattle’s music and the many
organizations that maintain its importance as a staple of the city’s
For consideration, the application deadline is Friday, November 14 at 11:59 pm

For the past couple of weeks, Sub Pop’s been bumming around Europe like college kids on summer vacation, and tomorrow night, we take over Pustervik in Gothenburg, Sweden as part of the Way Out West Fest. Specifically: Rose Windows, Lee Bains III & The Glory Fires, METZ and a whole, great heap of Sub Pop-related art installed in the venue (and which you can see in the accompanying photos) will be doing the aforementioned taking over. And while the art installation will be there for the rest of the year or so, the show ends sometime very early Saturday morning, so you should start your travel plans now. Enjoy the Sub Pop times, Gothenburg!
Summer is in full swing, well arguably, it’s been in full swing for a long time and it’s in its follow through now, but we’ve still got a solid month or two months of sunburns, beach bumming, summer jams, long nights, and sand in weird places, and we’ve got some Official Sub Pop merchandise to get you through the remaining months.
We here at the Sub Pop Record Company understand the importance of personal temperature awareness (PTA)–heat stroke is no joke, as they say–so that’s why we’re doing our part by taking a very successful (successful in terms of revenue for us) sweatshirt design, and fine tuning it a bit to make it available in the seasonable appropriate, sleeveless, tank top shirt-way. The now new-classic Sub Pop “Futura” design, is now available in a cranberry or blue tank for your summery needs. If you can’t stay inside this summer, don’t forget to liberally apply sunpaste, militantly hydrate, and most importantly, wear Sub Pop tank tops all summer long to avoid heat stroke, the silent bummer.
