Published Apr 10, 2013When Sub Pop announced their upcoming Record Store Day compilation Sub Pop 1000, the venerable Seattle indie label also made mention of an upcoming outdoor concert commemorating their 25th anniversary. Two months later, the company has now issued the first wave of artists appearing at its Silver Jubilee.
The free, all-ages party takes place on July 13 on a stretch of Airport Way in the city's Georgetown neighbourhood. Unsurprisingly, the concert will feature artists affiliated with the imprint, with one of the big hitters being longtime pals Mudhoney, who likewise are celebrating their 25th anniversary.
Also featured at the Silver Jubilee will be Pissed Jeans, J Mascis, Father John Misty, Shearwater, the Baptist Generals, Tad Doyle's Brothers of the Sonic Cloth, a tag-team performance from Shabazz Palaces and THEESatisfaction, and a solo set from Afghan Whigs/Twilight Singers vocalist Greg Dulli. Other acts and comedians will be announced in the coming months.
The street festival will also feature art exhibits, a record fair, a pop-up version of the Sub Pop Mega Mart, and more.
While the show is technically free, Sub Pop is suggesting a $5 donation. The non-mandatory entry fee will nab you a tote bag, and proceeds will go towards charities including Northwest Harvest and the Northwest Parkinson's Foundation. You can find out more about the Silver Jubilee here.
