OUTBOUND: Sub Pop store is Sea-Tac's newest arrival

by Albert Rodriguez - SGN A&E Writer

It might smell like teen spirit the next time you're at Sea-Tac Airport, thanks to Sub Pop Records. The iconic Seattle-based record label that launched the careers of Nirvana, Fleet Foxes and The Shins, to name a few, opened a physical store location inside the main terminal of the airport on May 1.

Vinyl albums, tee-shirts, mugs, posters, books, trucker caps, flasks, shot glasses, neck pillows and even a special blend of roasted coffee are among the items for sale at the store, scheduled to be open 365 days a year from 6 a.m. to 10 p.m. Prices are very reasonable, for example $15 for tote bags, $10 for coffee mugs and $3 for stick pins, making Sub Pop merchandise an affordable, local souvenir that can be conveniently packed into your carry-on bags.

Obviously, Sub Pop gear and goodies will appeal more to music fans - especially those who understand its connection to Seattle - but the store is definitely worth checking out, located north of the central terminal's food court, across from Anthony's Restaurant.

A brief ribbon-cutting reception included speeches by Port of Seattle Managing Director Mark Reis, Sub Pop Executive Vice President Megan Jasper and Port of Seattle Commissioner John Creighton, as well as a short performance by singer-songwriter Chad Van Gaalen.

'Our music community is second to none', said a vibrant Jasper, dressed in a floor-length dress and long, straightened cinammon-colored hair. Meanwhile, Creighton spoke about his love for many Seattle rock bands, particularly Queensryche and Soundgarden.

In recent years, the Port of Seattle has worked in alliance with the Office of Film + Music, the Seattle Music Commission and PlayNetwork to create the 'Experience the City of Music Program,' offering live entertainment to passengers on select days, as well as a hand-picked selection of tunes played on its speaker system throughout the airport. Among the songs by artists with Northwest roots that you'll hear as you're checking in for your flight or running to the gate are Nirvana's 'All Apologies,' Brandi Carlile's 'Closer to You,' Fleet Foxes' 'White Winter Hymnal,' Heart's 'These Dreams,' Macklemore & Ryan Lewis' 'Can't Hold Us,' Ray Charles' 'You Are My Sunshine,' Neko Case's 'Wild Creatures,' Quincy Jones' 'One Hundred Ways,' Kenny G's 'The Moment,' Death Cab for Cutie's 'Marching Bands of Manhattan,' and Dave Matthews Band's 'Stay.' The current list features over 500 tracks.

Also, several Emerald City musicians voluntarily recorded announcements that occasionally play overhead, including Macklemore, Quincy Jones, Ben Gibbard (of Death Cab for Cutie), Brandi Carlile, Ann Wilson (of Heart) and Jerry Cantrell (of Alice in Chains).

In 2012, Sub Pop Records donated generously to Washington's marriage equality campaign, which legalized same sex marriage statewide, and the label released a promotional copy of Macklemore and Ryan Lewis' 'Same Love' to help raise money for the initiative.
