Celebrating 25 years as not only a Seattle but a national institution, local label Sub Pop is throwing a party on Saturday, July 13th, in the historic (and industrial) Georgetown neighborhood and we're all invited. The Silver Jubilee is free to all and features, as was announced today, an incredible initial lineup. Here to introduce the bands, some of Sub Pop's elder statesmen:

  • Mudhoney
  • J Mascis
  • Greg Dulli
  • Shabazz Palaces (with THEESatisfaction)
  • Shearwater
  • Father John Misty
  • Pissed Jeans
