Knitting Factory (by LarimdaME)
Knitting Factory

Just when you thought you attended the final show at Knitting Factory's Manhattan location...

THE MASTER MUSICIANS OF JAJOUKA W/ BACHIR ATTAR AND VERY SPECIAL GUESTS - SATURDAY, FEB 28th

FLOWER TRAVELIN' BAND (FIRST EVER US PERFORMANCE) - FRIDAY, MARCH 13th

YA HO WHA 13 (CURATES A FULL CLUB EVENT) - SATURDAY, MARCH 28th

Those three shows are not in Brooklyn, and they're not at the Studio at Webster Hall where KF has been promoting shows since their own space closed on New Years Eve. Those three shows are at 74 Leonard St., the very space that's apparently just been sitting there empty, but still fully functional, since they chose to close on December 31st even though their lease isn't up until July. Knitting Factory's new president Morgan Margolis realized the silliness of that, and has decided to reopen the club on select dates for special shows.

Six shows total are now on sale.

Whoever's running that place is sincerely confused.

This is like the 78th attempt at the Floer Travelin' Band's "1st ever US performance."
I hope it really happens this time. Every time they cancel i get my tickt price refunded - fees. It has cost me like $30 to not see them.

A poorly run business? In this day and age? Go figure.

I loved that fucking place for the last year it was there. maybe they will renew the lease? cross fingers...

Are they even going to move into the BK location? There is no signage or anything at the spot that was, for a minute, Luna Lounge in Williamsburg.
