Both Pickaton and PDX Pop Now! have made minor adjustments to their upcoming lineups. First off, the legendary Billy Joe Shaver—who once shot a man in the face and then asked for the bullet back—has bowed out of this year's Pickathon due to health issues. He'll be replaced by Hayes Carll, who, to our knowledge, has never shot anyone in the face. There's still time, Hayes.
As for PPN!, SubArachnoid Space is breaking up and instead of playing their final show for fans who weren't born when they first started 14 years ago, they are dropping off the festival. Their final date will be August 13 at Mississippi Studios and their festival slot will be filled by Witch Mountain.
Please make a note of it.
