    Norcross, GA 30072

    So excited to be a part of this opening!  Join us in this historic home in old town Norcross, Ga.  FREE opening night for the works of local artist and scientist, Angelika Domschke.  You will love her work and her.  Come meet the artist and fall in love!
     
    Explore Innocence with Angelika. 
     
    Artist and Scientist, Angelika Domschke, will present a show of her sculptures, artworks and illustrated books in September 22 - October 27. The theme “Explore Innocence” highlights her fantasy character art – mermaids, angels, elves and animals both in paintings and carvings shown in an ethereal light.
     
    The artist and scientist has authored and illustrated a children’s book helping to educate in more elementary terms Sickle Cell Anemia which is an often hidden and unrecognized disease. Angelika is presently in the process of working with Emory University to develop an interactive version for their Children’s Hospital.
     
    She also authored and illustrated a multi-media children’s book encouraging children's health and educating about germs and the immune system.  The book features enchanting songs by Pickxen and a video. It will be available for purchase at the event.
    Proceeds from the sale of books and Angelika’s artworks will go toward the Sickle Cell Anemia Fund.

It’s Summertime

Pickxen has been busy, and that has left us a little remiss in chatting up a storm on this here blog. We spent most of the Spring recording back at our favorite spot, Blackberry Whine studios. read more

It’s A Beautiful Morning

Well, it’s a beautiful morning, isn’t it? And welcome to our brand new website! Hope you like the new look. On it you you’ll find all things Pickxen including our Twitter feed, a Soundcloud player from which you can access the songs from our CD ‘Picks ’n Vittles’, an updated gig listing, song lyrics and coming soon a ‘Media’ page with reviews of our music, an EPK, our ‘One Sheet’ and other promotional items. read more

What’s He Building in There?

Well here we are, finding ourselves deep in the throes of the Holiday Season. Usually, the end of the year finds Pickxen slowing down a smidge in order to take some time to enjoy family and friends and give thanks for all the wonderful blessings bestowed on us this previous year. Where has the time gone, anyway, and didn't we ask that very same question about this time last year?? read more

Them Changes

Well friends, here we find ourselves in the dog days of Summer 2016 and things seem to be changing on a daily basis (save the 90 plus degree weather we seem to have been 'enjoying' nigh on these last 60 days, or so). You can find our cd 'Picks 'n Vittles' all over the internet - iTunes, Spotify, Amazon read more

The Music Goes Round and Round!

Wow friends!! Seems like it was forever ago since we last visited! But we all made it through Autumn and we made it through the holidays and we made it all the way through 2015 and woke up to greet 2016, right on time, like we knew she would be. read more

It’s Our Autumn Almanac!

Well hello, once again, friends and neighbors! Been quite awhile since we last visited, so let's see if we can't get y'all up to speed on all, (or at least most), things Pickxen. So get you some sweet tea and find a spot on the divan and get a load of our Autumn Almanac: read more

Don’t ‘cha Just Know It

Well, don't 'cha just know it! Tough times don't last - but tough people do. Our own Pixie P. has been going through some tough times with his poor old back but with the help of some supremely talented doctors and the Big Man upstairs, he has prevailed, the back issues are only a memory right now and this here little band is ready to move forward with an all out assault on the music business!! read more

Strange Things Happen Every Day

Well, it's a new month and Pickxen band finds itself with new challenges nearly everyday (and who doesn't like a new challenge, anyway?). Ole Pixie P. woke up a few days ago and found that his back wasn't interested in taking part in the daily rigors that keep an old bass player pounding away with the rhythm of life. read more
