Too Late — You Missed It!

Aug 26 – Aug 28

When the British indie rock duo Wet Leg went viral on TikTok earlier this year with their quirky, deadpan single “Chaise Longue,” reactions were mixed. Some were confused, others critical, but mainly, listeners found that they couldn’t get the infectiously-catchy tune out of their heads. Since then, Wet Leg has released their debut self-titled album, which earned them international attention (even Harry Styles digs the duo, covering their song “Wet Dream” on BBC Radio). Luckily for all of us, they’ve finally journeyed back to the Pacific Northwest, where you can catch them at THING later this month in Port Townsend.

The three-day festival presented by STG and Adam Zacks will take place the weekend of August 26th at Fort Worden and features an assortment of musical performances from local favorites including Enumclaw and Shaina Shepherd to indie classics like Faye Webster, Hiatus Kaiyote, and Wet Leg (duh). You can also catch one of the several workshops being offered in whatever type of creative outlet floats your boat — there’s a class on afro dance, lantern making, and musical theater—you can even listen to composer Scott Freidman explain the production techniques of the Beatles! So grab your camping “chaise longues” and celebrate the end of summer with one last festival hurrah.
