Kicking off this weekend’s Sub Pop Silver Jubilee festivities with a maneuver usually reserved for stunt men and superheroes, grunge forefathers Mudhoney will be performing live on top of Seattle’s Space Needle this evening, at 5:00pm Pacific time.
Seattle’s public and extremely good radio station KEXP will be live-broadcasting the death-defying musical shenanigans—as well as airing live interviews with legendary Sub Pop personnel, opening-act performances from atop the Needle, and deep cuts from Sub Pop’s vast archive, for the five hours leading up to the headlining set. Listen from anywhere in the world at KEXP.org—and CLICK BELOW to watch Mudhoney’s live performance [the show starts at about 21:00]:
Until tonight at 5:00, here are a couple Mudhoney classics to whet your appetite:
Update: In case you missed the KEXP pre-show this afternoon, featuring on-air interviews (producer Jack Endino, music photographer Charles Peterson, Soundgarden’s Kim Thayil, Sub Pop co-founder Bruce Pavitt) and live performances (Sera Cahoone, Grant Olsen, J. Mascis), you can still watch it here.
