Pickathon

Into the Woods: Pickathon

For the 19th year, Pendarvis Farm in Happy Valley, Oregon, transforms into an “elaborate fantasy setting” of sensational live music, local food and drink and feel-good community.  At Pickathon, stages pop up inside dreamy barns draped with twinkly lights and built into wooded alcoves, where haystacks and hammocks lure listeners of all ages.

The Slants are made up of, from left, Yuya Matsuda, Ken Shima, Simon Tam and Joe X. Jiang.
