The Street Scene at Sub Pop’s Silver Jubilee

We’re still recovering from the awesomeness that was Sub Pop’s Silver Jubilee music festival last Saturday—and, we’ll continue to roll out exclusive interviews, photos and favorite Sub Pop playlists as we celebrate the legendary Seattle record label’s 25th birthday for the remainder of the month.

Today, we present for your enjoyment a throng of street-style photos, captured both in the wild of the crowds as well as in our own mobile photo set—sponsored in part by our friends at Topman and Topshop.

R: Hana Ryan Wilson of Seattle’s Craft & Culture…and photo bomber.

The crowd (and food-truck scene) in Seattle’s Georgetown ‘hood at sunset. That’s the former Rainier Beer brewery (now used as studio space) on the right.

R: Sailor stripes at Father John Misty.

The candid photos from here up are by Men’s Shop creative director Strath Shepard—who bravely wandered the festival grounds pink and sunscreen-less, camera in-hand.

Below, our friend and extremely talented photographer Robin Stein ran an all-day photo booth where Nordstrom friends old and new alike could cruise through, don some Topman or Topshop gear if they so chose, and go blue-steel for an impromptu #streetstyle session:

    What a great event, so glad Nordstrom was there to support Seattle and it’s music scene. Just a heads up in the “Family that Rocks Together,” our little one, Stella, is a little lady. Wanted to make that correction, glad that we made it on the blog!

    Updated! Very sorry about that Mary – best-dressed baby at the fest, either way! Thanks for reading.
