In honor of Sub Pop's Silver Jubilee, KEXP has teamed up with the record label for a special radio broadcast tomorrow—live from the Space Needle. Because why not?
KEXP DJs Cheryl Waters, Kevin Cole, and John Richards will spend the afternoon chatting with Sub Pop cofounder Jonathan Poneman, label VP Megan Jasper, Nirvana and Soundgarden producer Jack Endino, and Soundgarden’s Kim Thayil, with live performances by label artists throughout the day. Mudhoney, which also celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, headlines the Space Needle (I really wanted to say that) with a 5pm performance.
Here's the lineup, with live streaming and more info via kexp.org:
