Donavon Frankenreiter

Recommended by Ciara Dolan

Billabong-sponsored surfer and Jack Johnson protégé (shudder) Donavon Frankenreiter headlines tonight’s show, but his opening act is the name worth remembering. John Craigie is the California-born, Portland-based singer/songwriter whose Americana ballads and aw-shucks humor instantly won over the crowd at Pickathon’s 2018 kickoff party (he’ll play the festival this summer). Last year Craigie released a new LP called No Rain, No Rose, which delivers more of the Mitch Hedberg-meets-Bob Dylan folksongs he’s been honing over the past decade, especially his ode to astronaut Michael Collins and cover of the Rolling Stones’ “Tumbling Dice.” But the best introduction to Craigie is still probably “I Wrote Mr. Tambourine Man” (from 2013’s The Apocalypse Is Over); at the Pickathon party he said he’d written the song after meeting a man in a New Orleans bar who claimed to have been ripped off by Dylan.
