WW: As a member of a group that's played almost every Pickathon, what's so special about it?
What about those people who say, “Why should I go out there and pay to see a bunch of bands I could see in town?”
Pickathon takes place Friday, Aug. 3, through Sunday, Aug. 5, at Pendarvis Farm in Happy Valley. Noon Friday, 9 am Saturday and Sunday. $50-$65 ($95 for a three-day pass). All ages. Jackstraw plays Sunday, Aug. 5, at the Fir Meadows Stage. 12:30 pm. For the complete Pickathon lineup with start times, visit pickathon.com. Photo: Jackstraw, taken from the Pickathon site.
