Sub Pop Announces Line Up For Silver Jubilee Show

This looks awesome.

Two things: Tad Doyle now looks like Santa Claus. And Jack Endino is still totally cool. The last time I saw him, he was shirtless and spitting beer into the crowd of a Skin Yard show. It helped. It was really hot in there.

From the inbox:

Sub Pop Records is visibly full of itself in sharing the initial lineup for our 25th anniversary celebration, the Sub Pop Silver Jubilee, to be held July 13th in Seattle, Washington. The event will feature music and comedy performances from artists from the label’s roster and beyond, both past and present.

On Saturday, July 13th, Sub Pop will present a free, all-ages concert on a stretch of Airport Way in Seattle’s historic & colorful Georgetown neighborhood—a lively cultural community that’s home to over 40 galleries, specialty boutiques, diners, nightclubs, coffee shops, art studios, and more. So far, the music lineup features Mudhoney (who are also celebrating their 25th anniversary), Greg Dulli, J Mascis, Shabazz Palaces (with THEESatisfaction), Shearwater, Pissed Jeans, The Baptist Generals, Brothers of the Sonic Cloth (featuring Tad Doyle), and Endino’s Earthworm (featuring legendary producer Jack Endino) performing throughout the day, alongside local food trucks, beer gardens, at least one gallery exhibit, a record fair, and the largely unasked-for return of the Sub Pop Mega Mart as a pop-up store. Expect more bands and events to be announced soon.

We've imposed upon a few members of our extended family to help announce the event, and they did a real bang-up job. Please enjoy this very special and occasionally humorous announcement now.

While the Silver Jubilee is free, fans who make a suggested $5 donation at collection stations upon entry to the fest, will receive a limited-edition tote bag. All monies raised will benefit local charities like 90.3FM KEXP, Northwest Harvest and the Northwest Parkinson’s Foundation. In addition to these worthy organizations, Sub Pop is fortunate to be working with the Georgetown Merchants Association and great businesses like Georgetown Brewing Company, the Sandbox, Fantagraphics Books, Georgetown Records, Via Tribunali, Elysian Brewing Company, and the Georgetown Inn to create a one-of-a-kind event in a one-of-a-kind neighborhood.
