30 years ago, Sub Pop Records was founded - and in turn, the Seattle grunge era was born.
Sub Pop made its mark in the music industry by signing Seattle bands Soundgarden, Nirvana, and Mudhoney in their early days and have kept their momentum going by releasing records from bands like The Shins, The Head and the Heart, Fleet Foxes, and Father John Misty.
Now that they're turning 30, they're getting ready to celebrate with a free, all-ages party here in Seattle called SPF 30. With bands performing on four different stages, food trucks,and a record fair, it's going to be a great event to support local music and up-and-coming artists. SPF 30 has events running at multiple Seattle locations on August 10 and 11.
Mudhoney returns with their latest album Digital Garbage, debuting on September 28th. They'll also be taking the stage on August 11 at SPF 30, but first, they're here to perform the opening track on their new record, Nerve Attack.
