I know it feels like January out there, but trust me, Pickathon season is just about to start heating up. The lineup announcement party takes place this weekend, and here to get you in the mood is the latest video from our Pickathon Starlight Series, in which we spotlight the nocturnal after-hours performances of the Starlight Stage, filmed late at night after the main stages call it a day. Today's episode features Austin, Texas band Wild Child and their sultry rendition of "Expectations."
Wild Child are making a return to Portland in just a few short days: They're hitting the Aladdin Theater on Thursday, January 24. And if you can't wait that long to get into the Pickathon swing of things, this Sunday, January 20, at 7 pm, they're revealing the lineup for 2019's fest at Revolution Hall! It's free, and will feature performances from some of this year's artists—you don't want to miss it.
