There are still a couple "TBAs" left in the Pickathon lineup grid, but for the most part, here is the complete list of bands that'll be performing at 2014's festival. (As far as the bands yet to be announced, I'd personally venture a guess that one of them is something that's coming up very soon in the Portland live music calendar—Pickathon veterans, perhaps—that can't be announced until after they play their upcoming Portland show.)

I admit I was skeptical of Pickathon's slow rollout of their lineup, but it turned out to be a coup. The anticipation for this year's festival built slowly but steadily, and the conversation and buzz has gathered steam over the past couple weeks. (How long did we all talk about the Sasquatch lineup—a day? Two at most?)

This year, I'm personally most excited to see Courtney Barnett, the Barr Brothers, Parquet Courts, Angel Olsen, Diarrhea Planet, Ural Thomas and the Pain, Woods, Eric D. Johnson's new project (EDJ), and a LOT more. It's a very deep bench the Pickathon crew has put together. Take a look at the (almost) complete lineup after the jump, along with Pickathon's lineup video. Tickets are on sale here, and they've announced a 3,500 capacity this year so I expect it will sell out.
