Let’s Party Like It’s 1988! Celebrate Sub Pop’s 30th Anniversary!

spf30-ad-full-lineup-ls

That stench you’re smelling is the wafting of “Teen Spirit” from the metaphorical grave of Kurt Cobain…and the dried up crunchy smell of “pearl jammed” sheets…and the sweet earthy smells of “mudhoney” mixed with the long gone scents of Rainier beer being brewed…

Misty water colored memories…of the way it were…

Yes, the moony eyed gaze you’ve seen lately on Seattlites of a certain age (45 to 55) is because nostalgia is in the air due to all sorts of things all converging at once…including the 30th anniversary celebrations of SUB POP, the indie Seattle record label so instrumental in the “Seattle Sound” music madness of the late 80s/early 90s (aka, that dirty word: “grunge”).

Sub Pop is doing all sorts of stuff this weekend including:
