It has been announced that Trilogy night club Everett (formally Bar Myx) has closed it doors. I've had the privilege and honor of being the clubs resident DJ for almost a decade.  It saddens me knowing that we have lost a safe space for all to come, free of prejudice in Snohomish County.

I hold many memories and have made so many friends along the way. I hope that another venue will open their doors with the same freedom of expression that owner Brenton offered to us over the years. Thank you Brenton for giving us all a safe space to gather as family. I look forward to seeing everyone out on the dance floor and remember, 'The World Will Stop Spinning, If We're Not Dancing On It '
