The Head and The Heart … and the pig and the flying fish.

That will be the scene on Sunday as the Seattle band takes to the rooftop of the city’s historic Pike Place Market for a free concert being put on by Amazon Music.

The concert, open to anyone who can squeeze into the brick-paved streets in front of the Market’s iconic neon sign and clock, is in support of the band’s latest album, “Living Mirage.”

Amazon will also be streaming the event on its Facebook and Twitter channels for those who can’t make it in person, and according to a news release, videos of the performance will remain live for a limited time afterward.

The event comes just days after the tech giant and CEO Jeff Bezos played host to pop star Katy Perry and hip-hop it man Lil Nas X with an employee-appreciation concert at CenturyLink Field in Seattle.

The Sunday show is scheduled to start at 7 p.m. PT. Pike Place and First Avenue will be closed to vehicles starting at 5 p.m., according to the Market, and sidewalks will remain open for access to restaurants and shops.

The Head and The Heart will have a pop-up store, open from noon to 9 p.m. at the nearby Showbox, featuring exclusive merchandise designed for the event. All proceeds will benefit Seattle-based music programs and initiatives.

The Head and The Heart got its start in Seattle, and two members of the band were onetime buskers at the Market. Their breakout debut album was released in 2011 and featured the hits “Rivers and Roads,” “Down In The Valley” and “Lost In My Mind.”

“Living Mirage,” with its lead single “Missed Connection,” can be purchased on Amazon Music.

Update, Aug. 25: Here was the scene at the concert, and below that, the full show as it appeared streaming on Facebook:

We're coming to you LIVE from Seattle's historic Pike Place Market!
