Sub Pop record label's flag is flying high from the Space Needle this weekend in celebration of 20 years of this Northwest label's artists and their amazing music. The two day concert line up at Marymoore Park is enjoying absolutely perfect weather. The label that brought the 80s and 90s Seattle sounds of Green River (members of which went off to make music in Pearl Jam & Mudhoney) , Mudhoney, Nirvana, and Soundgarden to the the wider world has continued to sign talented musicians and popular bands such as the Jesus & Mary Chain, the Postal Service, Modest Mouse, The Thermals, The Shins, Flight of the Conchords, and Fleet Foxes, among dozens of others. I'm sure you've heard at least the names of some of these bands, and if you've never taken a listen, I'd suggest starting in way popular turf with giving The Shins a spin here. I took this shot last night from Capitol Hill looking west at about 8:30 PM and the temp was still in the high 70s F. Hope you are enjoying a fabulous weekend!
