In November of 1916, two boats full of IWW labor organizers sailed to Everett to demonstrate. They were met by two hundred armed citizen deputies. Gunfire was exchanged, lives were lost on both sides, and the incident, which came to be known as the "Everett Massacre", became a pivotal moment in the history of the Northwest labor movement and created a heated division that still resonates to this day.
On the eve of the 100 year anniversary of this tragedy, a group of local and national songwriters will be presenting an evening of new music reflecting on the events leading up to and following that day.
This one night only performance is presented by Jason Webley in cooperation with the City of Everett Cultural Arts Commission and the Everett Music Initiative.
Tickets are also available at the Historic Everett Theatre box office or at Cafe Zippy (2811 Wetmore).
