Some of the bands that rocked The Federal Way Skate Center during those great years of NW music were:

City Zu
King Biscuit Entertainers
Ricky Nelson
Sundae Funnies
The Torquays
White Heart

Federal Way Skate Center was called the Family Circle' when I was going there in 1970.  I saw Vendetta  there.  Great show.  They were sort of Let It Bleed era Rolling Stones as I recall.  Playing clear Gibbon S-G's as Keith Richard did at the time.  There was a ton of black lights. Maybe a light show.

Federal Way Skate Center was part of the "SANTAFAIR" complex.
