Instituting a new End Hits policy*, wherein every post about the Sasquatch lineup is shortly followed by a post about the Pickathon lineup. (See also this and this.)

Confirming previously reported rumors, Blitzen Trapper (pictured above) and Dr. Dog are headlining the 2009 edition of Pickathon, which officially announced its preliminary lineup today. Other bands of note on the bill are Vetiver, the Sadies, Joe Pug, as well as Portlanders Alela Diane, Foghorn Stringband, and Hillstomp.

Pickathon runs July 31 to August 2. Check out the rest of the lineup here. Another 10 or so acts may be added to the bill in coming months, with organizers anticipating around 35 acts total. Pickathon 2008 was sincerely a tremendous time; expect this year to be no different.

*this will not really be a policy
