Pickathon is a-coming!
Filed under: News | Posted by:


When You Awake’s own Nick Stahl will be hitting the road for the beaver state of Oregon to experience the one and only Pickathon Music Festival. The 14th annual fest is set to take place over the weekend of August 3-5 just outside of Portland, Oregon at Pendarvis Farm. As always, this year’s line-up is beyond amazing – country, bluegrass, folk, Americana and good old rock and roll from When You Awake favorites Dr. Dog, Phosphorescent, Kitty Daisy & Lewis, Langhorne Slim, CW Stoneking, AA Bondy and many more.

Nick will be checking in with some photos, interviews and more – sharing the experience of this one of kind festival with all of you! In the meantime, check out a few of the groups that we are really excited to check out after the jump. Note: If you don’t have tickets yet, what are you waiting for? Hop a train, plane, bus and head on over. Seriously, having gone to festivals the world over, Pickathon is one festival that is actually worth it (read our review from Pickathon 2009 for evidence). A limited number of tix are still available here.

Robert Ellis (Houston, Texas); An old friend of mine turned me on to his 2011 album “Photographs” which (to borrow a phrase from the late Gram Parsons) shines with the kinds of songs I love – “nostalgia and slow country”…

Whitey Morgan & The 78’s (Flint, Michigan); Hard not enjoy some hard driving country soul in the grand tradition of Willie, Waylon and David Alan Coe.

Neko Case; What more can you say?

Here’s to a summer adventure at Pickathon! See you there?
