Best Fest For Not Feeling Old And In The Way

Pickathon

Who's performing: Drive-By Truckers, Deer Tick, Jonathan Richman

Location: Happy Valley, OR; August 3-6

Dates:

Why you should go: About a half hour outside of Portland, a farm in Happy Valley plays host to a fest where the average age of both the bands and the attendees is, “old enough to be a dad.” And that’s perfectly fine, as one in eight attendees is a teen or kid. So bring those big-ass headphones for your young one and soak in those guitar riffs you remember from Dinosaur Jr.’s early ‘90s albums. You might want to bring a pair for yourself, too.
