Pickathon 2012: watch the live webcast next weekend!

Friday, August 3 through Sunday, August 5, Happy Valley, Oregon, enjoys the sunny sounds of Pickathon once again at Pendarvis Farm. This year, the predominantly roots-oriented lineup, featuring Neko Case, Blitzen Trapper, Langhorne Slim, Dr. Dog, and Laura Gibson is diversified by the addition of world, rock and even hip hop acts like Sierra Leone’s Refugee All Stars, THEESatisfaction, The War on Drugs, and Thee Oh Sees. Tickets are still available here, but if you’re not planning to head out next weekend, you can still enjoy the performances from your own home!

Pickathon will be broadcasting over 40 hours of live music during its now annual festival video webcast. Not only will you be able to see over 40 bands from 6 stages, but KEXP and Paste Magazine, among others, will be providing exclusive behind the scenes interviews, private sessions, and more.
