On Thursday, July 11, KEXP and Sub Pop made history when Seattle rock icons Mudhoney played a full set from the top of the Space Needle. We've already shared with you video streamed live from their explosive set (watch it here), but there was a lot more going on during our day on the Needle, including more acoustic performances from Seattle musicians Sera Cahoone and Grant Olsen, as well as interviews with producer Jack Endino, photographer Charles Peterson, Soundgarden's Kim Thayil, and Sub Pop founder (and former KCMU DJ) Bruce Pavitt. Check out photos from this momentous event here:
