Let us tell you how sweet this is…
Photographer Tim LaBarge and designer Patrick Barber collaborated to create this keepsake book that captures the essence of Pickathon.
The book is a retrospective of images from LaBarge’s archive from the past five years and includes essays and stories from musicians and music writers including Northwest favorites Danny Barnes, Langhorne Slim and Eric D. Johnson (from the Fruit Bats.) “We tried our best to tell the story of Pickathon with these pictures,” says LaBarge. “But the writers and the musicians that contributed pieces to the book blew my mind. There’s a deep love and respect for this festival that goes beyond just an interest in music. It’s about people.”
Pickathonography Vol. 1 will be available at the festival merchandise table (August 5, 6, 7 at Pendarvis Farm in Happy Valley, Ore.), online through Tim’s website or you can also just tack one onto your Pickathon Ticket order and pick it up at the Festival (this option only available until Midnight on Wednesday August 3).
If you can’t make it to the festival, Tim will be at Music Millennium Wednesday, August 3rd at 7 pm at the signing table – alongside the Fruit Bats, who will be there doing an in store with their new release Tripper, which is out this tuesday August 2nd by Sub Pop.
Wowwee what a week
