The way the folks at Pickathon do their booking is really kind of unique. Everyone involved brings music to regular get-togethers in co-founder Zale Schoenborn's basement and, over beers, they just sit around listening. The talk isn't about draw or demographics—though, obviously, the question "will folks like it?" comes up a lot—it's about whether the songs the group just heard blew them away or not.
The 2012 Pickathon Music Festival, which will be happening August 3rd through August 5th at Pendarvis Farm near Portland, Oregon, is thrilled to announce this yearâs line-up!
