While many have visited Seattle's iconic landmark, the Space Needle, and even braved the 604 foot height to take in the view from the top, only a select few can say that they've stepped onto that 604th foot of the Needle. On July 11th, in celebration of Sub Pop's 25th anniversary, KEXP and Sub Pop's Grant Olsen (of Gold Leaves), Sera Cahoone and Mudhoney took over the Needle for a historic live broadcast from the roof of the structure. These fearless musicians delivered unwavering performances that, while once in a lifetime, can be relived with KEXP's footage!
