The iconic Seattle band Soundgarden was spotted posing for photos in front of a grungy-looking building on 22nd Ave. in Old Ballard Friday evening. Our tipster, who sent us these photos, says it was a photo shoot for Spin Magazine.
We also saw a couple Tweets about the photo shoot. “(I’m) still calming rob down after our Ballard Chris Cornell/Soundgarden sighting,” writes @fawsome on Twitter. “You’d think it was ‘94 again.”
One the defining bands of the Seattle grunge movement, Soundgarden recently reunited, playing at a semi-secret appearance at the Showbox in April that sold out in minutes — their first show together since 1997 (photos).
Their first big reunion concert is scheduled in August at Lollapalooza, and the rumor is the band has been practicing here in Seattle.
