Brought to you by Hollow Earth Radio , Magma 2010 features, among many others, The Thrown-Ups, (described by festival organizers as "the band that Mark Arm and Steve Turner were in before Mudhoney... Leighton [Beezer] started it in the '80s with the premise that he form a band that never practiced and never had any songs"); Bruce Pavitt on the 1+2's; the legendary Tom Price and friends; and Butts, who play "songs about alcohol, marijunana* and not wanting to take the bus. I fucking love this band."

*[sic], and sick. Seems like an extremely enjoyable evening.

In preparation, let's review:

Another small point: The Thrown-Ups' "You Lost It" (featured on the 1988 compilation Sub Pop 200), has a minor but measurable musical congruity with "Norway" by Beach House (2009, also on Sub Pop). Just saying. Try it out and see what you think.
