This Year's Pickathon Was One of the Best

Posted by Ned Lannamann on Wed, Aug 7, 2013 at 12:29 PM

It's taken me a couple days since Pickathon to put my brain back together, and this year's was one of the very best since I started going in 2008. Every year the organizers make slight tweaks and changes—mostly improvements, sometimes not—but this year I thought everything was humming along at its very best, from the expanded beer garden (you could carry a beer from the main stage to the barn area this year for the first time), to the stage setup (a collection of tied-together sails that was staggeringly beautiful), to the food selection, to the diverse bill of music, which featured plenty of high-dial rock 'n' roll. There's way, way too much to cover, so I'll just mention some of the many highlights...

Read the rest of my report over on End Hits. Also, be sure to check out first-time Pickathoner Mark Lore's writeup, too.
