SUB POP RECORDS' 20TH ANNIVERSARY BRINGS TOGETHER ARTISTS SPANNING TWO DECADES FOR BENEFIT FESTIVAL JULY 12 & 13
AT KING COUNTY'S MARYMOOR PARK

COMEDY SHOW KICKS OFF SP20 ON JULY 11 AT SEATTLE'S MOORE THEATRE FEATURING PATTON OSWALT, EUGENE MIRMAN, TODD BARRY and SURPRISE GUESTS


SEATTLE, WA - In unabashedly conspicuous celebration of 20 years of not going out of business (sometimes only barely), Seattle's Sub Pop Records will gather past and present label-mates for a series of events, including a two-day festival at Marymoor Park on July 12 & 13 and a comedy show on July 11 at Seattle's Moore Theatre. Proceeds from the sale of tickets will go to support beneficiaries of each participating act's choosing. Tickets go on sale April 26 at 12 PM Pacific at SubPop.com and all Ticketmaster locations. More ticket information provided below.

About SP20
Though Bruce Pavitt had been using the title SUBTERRANEAN POP since sometime in '79 for fanzines, cassette compilations, radio shows, and the like, somewhere along the line he and co-founder Jonathan Poneman decided that April 1, 1988--the day they quit their jobs and rented a tiny office in the Terminal Sales Building in Seattle--was the day Sub Pop Records was born. To celebrate the label's twentieth birthday, Sub Pop will release a series of re-issues starting with Mudhoney's Superfuzz Bigmuff: Deluxe Edition (May 22, 2008), launch a limited run of the Sub Pop Singles Club, and throw a series of over-the-top birthday parties for itself this summer.

SP20 Festival
The SP20 Festival is happening July 12 & 13 at Marymoor Park just outside of Seattle in Redmond, WA. In addition to reunited bands, acts currently on the label's roster, and everything in between, the festival will also host a half-pipe featuring both Nike and Girl + Chocolate sponsored skaters. While the full day-by-day line-up will be announced in the coming months, the festival will include:

Beachwood Sparks / Comets on Fire / Fleet Foxes / Flight of the Conchords / The Fluid / Foals / Grand Archives / Green River / The Helio Sequence / Iron & Wine / Kinski / Low / Mudhoney / No Age / Pissed Jeans / Red Red Meat / The Ruby Suns / Seaweed / Wolf Parade, and more to be announced.

Proceeds from ticket sales will benefit a variety of charities chosen by both Sub Pop and each act performing. Ticket information provided below.

SP20 Comedy Show
The SP20 activities will commence with a comedy show on July 11 at The Moore Theatre. Among the performing comedians are Sub Pop artists Eugene Mirman and Patton Oswalt, label friend and fan Todd Barry, and special guests.

Ticket information provided below.

Oh, if I was only 22 again...

Even this lineup is better than APW.

Booooooooooooo!!!!!

I wonder if all the cool kids will still like "flight of the conchords" after they inevitably start doing rom-coms.

Posted by jim | April 15, 2008 8:42 PM

Posted by Mark B. | April 15, 2008 11:28 PM

a ton of band.

Posted by grace6697 | April 16, 2008 10:38 AM

Red Red Meat??? I didn't even know they were still playing together! "Jimmywine Majestic" has to be one of my favorite albums of all time. Anyone know if they have they played here in NYC recently?

Posted by treece | April 16, 2008 11:37 AM

Red Red Meat aren't really actively touring or anything. I think they're just getting back together for the festival. Who knows maybe they'll decide to keep play some more shows like The Fluid though. I heard a rumor that there are several more super exciting bands yet to be announced for this Sub Pop shindig... Anybody got the scoop who they might be?

Posted by Anonymous | April 16, 2008 12:14 PM

SpinAAAAAAANES! Teen Angels? Friends of Dean Martinez? TAAAAAAAAD!

but already, jeez, Green River reunion? best show ever. except the Fluid, who were even worse than Love Battery.

Posted by Anonymous | April 16, 2008 12:21 PM

how about Pond? Swallow? Big Chief? Rein Sanction?

Posted by Anonymous | April 16, 2008 1:25 PM

They're probably gonna need to add some big-name headliners if they want to fill Marymoor Park. I'm thinking the Shins and Postal Service.

Catbutt, Swallow, Blood Circus and Love Battery all played shows in Seattle last year, so there's still a possibility of more of the original SP bands being added to the bill. Tad won't be one of them though. It would be nice to see some of the Portland contingent from the early 90's (Hazel, Pond, Sprinkler, Spinanes), and maybe The Fastbacks just one more time.

Hazel!!!! Pete Krebs if you're reading this please get Hazel back together for this show.

I've got tickets for Mudhoney 31st July London. Me and my friends are going down. Is anyone else going? we need a place to crash.

Posted by space beans part 2 | May 9, 2008 2:18 PM

Rein Sanction is still around and still playing the same sound! Look for them on CD Baby/iTunes. "Live Recordings" otherwise known as "Cat's Eye".
