Mudhoney to perform on top of Seattle’s Space Needle landmark

The legendary grunge band will play for label Sub Pop's 25th anniversary

Mudhoney are to play a gig on top of the Space Needle landmark in their hometown of Seattle next week, Examiner reports.

The show will take place on July 11 as part of the iconic label Sub Pop’s 25th anniversary celebrations. During the performance the band will be tethered to the top of the building, which is 605 feet tall.

The celebrations will then continue into the weekend, with a free one-day festival being hosted by the label in the Georgetown area of the city on July 13. Mudhoney will also play at that event, along with Dinosaur Jr’s J. Mascis, Built To Spill, Pissed Jeans, Chad VanGaalen and many more.


Officially founded on April 1 1988, Sub Pop is infamous for its grunge-focused roster of the early 90s including Nirvana, Dinosaur Jr, Fugazi and Afghan Whigs. Mudhoney released their first single ,’Touch Me, I’m Sick’, on the label in 1988. More recently the label has worked with the likes of Metz, Male Bonding and King Tuff.

Mudhoney released their ninth album ‘Vanishing Point’ earlier this year and recently brought labelmates Metz to the UK for a joint tour. Their first official biography Mudhoney: The Sound And The Fury is expected to be released this autumn.
