Celebrating 30 Years of Sub Pop Records

Legendary independent record label Sub Pop will turn 30 years old this year, and KEXP will pay tribute to the label with a four-month retrospective. With over 1,200 releases, the station is planning to honor every single catalog number in the history of the Seattle based label. The tribute will wrap up in time for Sub Pop’s 30th anniversary concert at Alki Beach in West Seattle this August.

Follow along with our countdown (or rather, count-up) on air, on our playlist, and with this breakdown of each release that will update each day. Check out the archives in the catalog numbers to the left.

KEXP will also be celebrating the band's 30 year history with album retrospectives, interviews, and more, which you can see below.
