The Sub Pop crew have been planning their 20th anniversary bash for some time now, and if a recent posting on the label's website is any indication, the two-day extravaganza is shaping up to be a hell of a lot more than just music.
Firstly, and perhaps most importantly, the good people running things in Seattle have agreed to let the label fly a gigantic Sub Pop flag on top of the famed Space Needle, which is almost as exciting as the rest of the festivities combined.
Then, tomorrow, July 10, the JBL theater will host the Oral History Live! series, which costs a mere $5 and will feature an interview with Sub Pop founders Bruce Pavitt and Jonathan Poneman. Following that will be a comedy night on Friday, featuring Todd Barry, David Cross, Eugene Mirman, Patton Oswalt, and Kristen Schaal.
The actual music festival happens July 12 - 13 at the Marymoor Park in Redmond, Washington, and will feature Foals, No Age, Wolf Parade, Pissed Jeans (pictured above), Low, Green River, and a bunch of others. There's still time to pick up tickets to the event, not to mention sign up for the Singles Club 3.0, which is limited to a run of 1500 subscriptions this time around.
