A nice reminder of a pretty epic era of music and talent. The Seattle Scene was so nice to be up close to from start to finish.

Seattle took music to new heights Thursday as local radio station KEXP got three bands to play atop the city's 604-foot-tall Space Needle in honor of Sub Pop Records' 25th anniversary.

The sky-high concert was capped in the late afternoon by legendary Sub Pop rockers Mudhoney, who played a 10-song set in a cramped "stage" above the landmark's observation deck. Blue skies, the waters of Elliott Bay and the distant Olympic Mountains provided a stunning backdrop for the historic event.
