Sub Pop Rock, Comedy, and Acoustic Guitar City
It goes without saying that a lamestain representative will be attending the most awesome event in the history of mankind (i.e., the Green River reunion). Look for Tom out there: he'll be the guy with long hair, a flannel shirt, torn jeans, and a leather jacket, throwing beer cans at Iron & Wine.
As for me? Lucky me, I'll be stuck in Chicago, doing marketing and investments homework. In honor of the event, I will be extra angst-y as I calculate CAPM models.
Dan at 10 Things has photos of last night's surprise Green River show at the Sunset.
Tom wrote a Grunge 101 piece in The Seattle Weekly that's worth a read, although you already own all of these records, of course. The Weekly also has other features about the big bash.
Pitchfork has devoted the entire week to Sub Pop-related features, some of which are really quite good. I take issue with their list of 20 essential releases, however, because it doesn't include Salt Lick. How do you accidentally omit Salt Lick?
Have fun at this thing, and take lots of photos.
P.S. MediaMax, our old host for mp3s, went tits up a couple of weeks ago, so you'll find that you can't link to those mp3s anymore. We'll still use zip files and box.net and, I hope, not have that problem any more.
