The Wood River Valley has long been a cradle of adventure and creativity. Through a shared vision of strengthening community through music and events, Leslie Chihuly, Skyler Locatelli, and Hank Minor have come together to create Warm Springs Productions.


WSP presents The Launch on July 12-13, 2022. The two-day community celebration features an Idaho Bounty wine-paired street dinner with live music, and a concert, light show, and after-parties where the music and merriment continue. 


Exceptional artists from the Pacific Northwest take center stage at The Launch Concert Tuesday at The Argyros. Rock to Thunderpussy, Shaina Shepherd, and Smokey Brights with mind-blowing visuals from San Francisco's Mad Alchemy Liquid Light Show. An after-party at Whiskey's features Chong the Nomad and Funkhauzen.  


On Wednesday, gather with friends, old and new, and savor the bounty Idaho and Italy have to offer. Seated at a family-style table, experience a personally curated farm-to-table meal by Chef Dev Patel, enhanced by selected pairings by wine specialist Leif Engberg. Live music, a signature cocktail and appetizers will elevate the evening and your spirit as you celebrate all the best parts of life; friends, food, music, and nature. 


Post-dinner on Wednesday, close out the celebration with Acid Tongue and DJ Sarah Savannah at Whiskey's. 


Tuesday, July 12

5:30 PM - Artist Meet & Greet

Enjoy some drinks and horse d'oeuvres upstairs at The Argyros with the exceptionally talented artists from the Warm Springs Launch Festival. 

7:00 PM - Thunderpussy, Shaina Shepherd, and Smokey Brights with the Mad Alchemy Liquid Light Show at the Argyros

Thunderpussy may be rock n roll's new diamond in the muff, but they’re not selling sex like a Carl's Jr. commercial-- They are literally whipping you with it. A Smokey Brights show is rife with dancing, dad jokes, monstrous guitar solos, and the best thrift shop fashion from across the world. Asses will be shook, hearts will be beautifully broken, and bartenders will be tipped. Seattle-based singer-songwriter Shaina Shepherd's pervasive style parallels gospel and garbage metal, with the raw power of rock, the richness of soul, and the tender introspection of American folk.  Bonus hypnotic visuals courtesy of San Francisco’s Mad Alchemy Liquid Light Show.

9:00 PM - 2:00 AM - Warm Springs Productions Launch After-Party

Whiskey's hosts the Argyros show after-party, featuring Chong the Nomad & Guest DJs. Doors open at 9:00 pm. Chong The Nomad is a 26-year-old Indonesian-American producer, DJ and artist, known for her layered dance music and hyped-up live performance style.
