Let that be a lesson
By Tim LaBarge
It was supposed to be a perfect spring evening. Tacos and a beer down the street from Mississippi Studios, a visit with friends and then head into the show. There was excitement in the air.
But as we approached the venue, we heard the dreaded words: Sold Out. Some of the people in our little group hadn't picked up tickets before the show and were now stuck. Out of luck. Bummed out.
Soon-to-be-at Pickathon bands Breathe Owl Breathe and Megafaun, along with past Pickathoners Pancake Breakfast, played to a full house on Saturday.
It was a great night of music.
We learned a couple of things that night.
- Both Breathe Owl Breathe and Megafaun have albums coming out soon and they're going to be awesome.
- Megafaun guitar player Brad Cook is a Lakers fan - but isn't afraid to rip his Kareem Abdul-Jabbar jersey off on stage and slip into a hand-crafted shirt reading: "'Huge' Portland Trail Blazers Fan."
- There's some incredible talent coming to the festival this year.
And most importantly, next time there's a line up like that, don't wait to buy those tickets.
