Pickathon Weekly Update: Pickathon gets some press, Ty Segall, Kurt Vile, JD McPherson and more.
It's Friday and today we've decided to give a smattering of Pickathon news from around the web...
First, The Bay Bridged points out in their fine writeup of Pickathon that "If the idea of festival juggernauts like Coachella, Lollapalooza and Bonnaroo stresses you out despite your appetite for the elongated thrill of a three-day party, Pickathon is a perfect alternative." And then just today Travel Oregon tells us how they feel ... "I’ve gone two years in a row now and it’s by far the most family-friendly, intimate, sustainable, low-hassle, musically diverse and beautifully executed festival I have ever been to. We couldn't agree more!
Also this week, a few of the artists from this years lineup have been making noise of their own; JD McPherson for his AMA nominations, Kurt Vile in Portland and tonight on Letterman, and now Ty Segall has announced a new release titled Sleepers, due out August 20 on Drag City. Ty will have his Sleepers band with him at Pickathon, and we'll most certainly see the new album live.
So that's all we have this week. We hope you are making Pickathon part of the plan for this summer, 2013 looks to be yet another amazing once-in-a-lifetime musical experience. Not to be missed.
If you have not already, please make sure to pick up your tickets now.
...see you on Monday.
New this week - Yellowbirds, Lightning Dust and Pure Bathing Culture
