Upcoming Details on Sub Pop’s Birthday Bash
posted by April 7 at 13:16 PMon
The Seattle Sound just posted details about the upcoming Sub Pop 20th anniversary party:
* The festival will officially take place July 12 & 13 at the 640-acre Marymoor Park in Redmond, with performances going both day and night
* Bands performing will cover the history of the labelís roster, including two reunion performances. One will be the much-ballyhooed return of Green River. The second, according to this recent news story from the Denver Post, will be the Fluid, Sub Popís first non-local signing from way back in 1985.
* There will likely be a Sub Pop comedy night at a yet-to-be-named venue separate from the music festivities.
* There could possibly also be some shows at clubs around Seattle leading up to the festivities, though details on this were very vague.

Just so happens that I overheard a couple dudes talking about it at Vita this weekend too. I don’t know who the guys were, so they could know just as little as anyone else, but they dropped a few names of performers including the Postal Service, Band of Horses, and Grand Archives.
I called to ask Sub Pop about it, but no one answered. I left a message and e-mailed.
UPDATE: Sub Pop can’t confirm or offer up any more info at this time, but we can expect an official announcement in the near future. Keep checking back!
