Come the first weekend in August, we'll be out the way of Pendarvis Farm for this year's Pickathon. We were already sold, based on their track record as well as what they've already announced of what is looking to be like a truly solid lineup, but today Pickathon announced a substantial addition to this year's festival. The new acts continue the trend of Pickathon expanding its range far beyond acoustic-based roots music, with acts that cover indie pop, stoner rock, Latin funk, and more. Check out these additions:
Black Mountain
Grupo Fantasma
Wye Oak
Corrine West & Kelly Joe Phelps
Michael Hurley
Jesse Sykes & The Sweet Hereafter
L. C. Ulmer
Lightning Dust
Dawn Landes
Sunday Valley
Eilen Jewell
Pickathon takes place August 5-7 at Pendarvis Farm, in Happy Valley, just outside of Portland. Plenty of info here, along with tickets. The full lineup for this year—it's great—appears after the jump.
