Pickathon 2014 Rumblings Begin

Posted by Ned Lannamann on Tue, Feb 25, 2014 at 11:29 AM

If you're like me, you blocked out the first weekend in August on your calendar for Pickathon long ago. But this morning the local music/arts/goodtimes festival officially announced their 2014 dates. Yes, those dates are August 1-3, and they'll be rolling out this year's lineup in a somewhat unconventional way. Instead of a single blast with a complete list of artists, they'll be announcing three to four bands per day over the next 16 days. (In other words, it's a nightmare for bloggers.) It'll be worth keeping an eye on their site over the next couple weeks to see what they've got up their sleeve this year. Tickets will go on sale this Saturday morning at 9 am.

In the meantime, they've released seven excellent videos that were shot at last year's Pickathon. I was present for many of these performances; it's nice to see them again. Yes, they're as good as I remember. Here's a list of what you can watch, with appropriate linkage.

Ty Segall: "The Man Man" - Woods Stage
Divine Fits: "Would That Not Be Nice" - Mountain View Stage (main stage)
Shabazz Palaces: "Youlogy" - Woods Stage
Lake Street Dive: "Just Ask" - Galaxy Barn
Andrew Bird & Tift Merritt: "Give It Away" - Woods Stage
Jessica Pratt: "Central Park" - private Farm session
Vieux Farka Touré: "Gi Ku Chi Fo" - Woods Stage
