Don’t miss this THING in Port Townsend

Last year they brought Modest Mouse to town to test the vibe. It sold out and the crowd was as cool as expected. They quickly realized this is the place to have a festival. The natural beauty is mind-blowing. We are a community of artists that support the arts in all forms. If they build this THING we will come.

THING, a brand new 2 day festival, of music, food, comedy, art, podcasts, movies and more is the weekend of August 24 and 25.


From the curators;

“Derived from the medieval term “Ting” meaning “an assembly of free people to reduce feuds and avoid social disorder.” THING will feature three primary stages including a decommissioned zeppelin hangar (McCurdy Pavilion), the charming and intimate art-deco Wheeler Theatre, and the Parade Grounds overlooking Puget Sound. Pack an open mind and positive attitude for a weekend of eclectic programming in an epic natural setting.”

Many reasons to be excited about this event.

About Spool Going Round

If you like my blog and have access to programming and would like to do a radio/internet show together, please contact me. My name is Mike. I am an on-air radio DJ. I fell in love with radio in Chicago and then took that passion to someplace where I could actually get on the air. My travels took me to Seattle, WA, Eugene and Portland, OR and Washington D.C., where I was able to have my own morning show. I've had crab cakes with Warren Zevon, sat backstage and interviewed Sting, had Melissa Etheridge sing to me from the front row and I loved every minute of it. That passion for music still burns strong in me and I love to talk music and be turned on to music. Sharing new music with people is what got me interested in radio in the first place. It is wonderful to be able to talk music with you. "Go ahead you're on the air..." Read more:
