Seatle's Sub Pop Records is turning 25 this year, which means their insurance rates are going down and they can finally rent a car, so they're pulling out all the stops for their celebration.
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.
Check out the video announcement. It's brilliant.
The music lineup so far:
Shabazz Palaces (with THEESatisfaction)
Father John Misty
The Baptist Generals
Brothers of the Sonic Cloth (feat. Tad Doyle)
