KEXP made Seattle music history last weekend by featuring the first band ever to play on the roof of the historic Pike Place Market: Raw Power KEXP! The Seattle supergroup featured local legends Mike McCready, Duff McKagan, Barrett Martin and Mark Arm covering the classics of Iggy Pop and the Stooges. Over 8,800 music lovers watched from the street, and $260,000 was raised for KEXP's New Home at concurrent fundraisers in the market. It was one of those once-in-a-lifetime moments where people will be saying for ages, "You really had to be there," but these beautiful photos from photographers Dave Lichterman, Jim Bennett, Charles Peterson, and David Coalter are the next best thing:
