In Everett we had a teen music center on Hewitt Ave called the Watermelon Sugar. The venue was open to performances on Friday and Saturday nights. Several of the Northwest Bands listed on this website were regular performers at the Watermelon Sugar. The venue also had its own light show - Captain Billy's Blinding White Lights. I remember that light show because I was one of the overhead projector operators.

In Everett between 1967 – 1969 on Hewitt Ave. there was a Dance club founded by some teachers from both Cascadeand Everett High, it was named Watermelon Sugar.

I caught Fragile Lime & The Floating Bridge there on the same bill.
