Of all the venues at Pickathon, The Galaxy Barn has to be the most chameleon like. Starting its days with the more kid-friendly Family Squaredance, moving into a block of more traditional or ‘sit-down’ type listening shows, then kicking things into high gear with it’s continually epic Late-Night (21+) shows.
Without a doubt, life at Pickathon gets crazy when the heat turns up and the bands get loud…
A lot of late-night favorites in the ‘ol barn come to mind since we first moved to Pendarvis Farm in 2006… The Avett Brothers (2006, 2007), Thee Oh Sees (2012), Lee Fields & The Expressions (2011), Dale Watson (2007, 2009), The Gourds (2007, 2008), The Cave Singers (2008), Wayne Hancock (2008), The Wilders (2006), Dr. Dog (2009, 2010, 2012), Heartless Bastards (2010, 2012), John Doe & The Sadies (2009), Thao With The Get Down Stay Down (2009), Hot 8 Brass Band (2012), Rev. Peyton’s Big Damn Band w/ Jason Webley (2007), Jolie Holland (2008), The War On Drugs (2012), Black Mountain (2011), Langhorne Slim (2007, 2008, 2010, 2012), and who could forget Blitzen Trapper (2009).
So I now see that this list could go on and on.. Who am I missing that have stood out to you?
Expect to be blown away again in 2013 as we’ve got a handful of great shows planned and can’t wait to share this epic schedule to be.
Until then, enjoy this video of Borrowed Time from a new Pickathon favorite, Parquet Courts.
