Woo! Our friends at Sub Pop records are turning 25 and throwing a big ol bash in Georgetown to celebrate. It's gonna set you back the low low cost of FREE there will be bands, there will likely be records, there will be drinks, and there will be good times. Here's the press release
"In honor of our 25th anniversary year, we at Sub Pop Records will be hosting an altogether free event, which we’re calling The Silver Jubilee, to be held July 13, 2013 in Seattle’s historic Georgetown neighborhood. Along and surrounding Airport Way, we are fairly certain there will be some combination of… Actual live bands, playing actual live music! Some sort of art-related something or other! Like, in a gallery space, we’re thinking! A record fair-type event! Food! Beer and wine! (The food and beer and wine and soda or whatever, you will have to pay for! These parts are not free!) Good times and opportunities to embarrass yourself and those who’d always hoped for better for you! Plus, bands!"
And there you have it! ALSO Sub Pop will be releasing the very limited (5000 copies) Sub Pop 1000 compilation containing previously unheard music from the archives in honor of this years record store day in some sort of fun colored vinyl run. Check out the tracklist below and let the speculation on who will play begin!
