BEST MUSIC FEST—If you've pinched your pennies and finally ventured out to Pickathon in years past, you know just how awesome this music fest is. It's worth every hard-earned ducat to visit the lovely Pendarvis Farm, camp in the woods, eat amazing food, and listen to spectacular music under the stars. This is the stuff of winter dreams. CF
w/Feist, Andrew Bird, Divine Fits, & more; Pendarvis Farm, 16581 SE Hagen, Happy Valley, Fri-Sun, $130-260, see for schedule and parking/camping costs

MUSIC—Even if it seems like all your friends are at Pickathon this weekend, there is a pretty stunning reason to stay in town tonight: Sebadoh is playing... not at the Roseland, or the Crystal, or the Wonder, but at Bunk Bar. Rub shoulders with lo-fi legend Lou Barlow at a small venue? What is this, 1992? MS
w/Octa#grape; Bunk Bar, 1028 SW Water, 9 pm, $15
