"The Knitting Factory brings a commitment and style to the Boise music scene unlike anything we have previously experienced," said Dean Hanson, general manager of the Boise venue, in a statement.
Of KFE, Matt Judge, general manager of the Spokane venue, added, "We have seen exciting new entertainment in the Spokane area such as Modest Mouse, Bright Eyes, Life House, Rob Zombie, and Phil Vassar...just to name a few. Changing the name from the Big Easy Concert House to Knitting Factory Concert House will heighten venue recognition within the industry, helping bring talent that would otherwise be absent in the Spokane market. The Knitting Factory Concert House will continue to be one of the driving forces in the Spokane market." [Ticket News]
