Pickwick has never played in Atlanta and I’m sharing this until they do (part of our #Get2ATL series):
Update: Pickwick played their first Atlanta gig in April, 2013, our #1 show that month!
Thanks to Sound on the Sound, I first heard Seattle’s Pickwick in 2011 after videos were recorded in the band’s basement and on the shore of the Doe Bay in Orcas Island, Washington. This soulful six-piece band has since released an EP, Covers, which includes a version of Richard Swift’s “Lady Luck” and features the lovely Sharon Van Etten. Pickwick’s debut album, Can’t Talk Medicine, will be available March 12th on Dine Alone Records.
Live from the basement: “Hacienda Motel” and “Window Sill”
Live from Doe Bay: “Staged Names” and “Hacienda Motel”
