This press release just landed in our inbox: “The Knitting Factory, a leader in the New York arts scene for over two decades, is proud to announce that our new venue at 361 Metropolitan Avenue in the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY will be opening September 2009. Brooklyn-based favorites, Les Savy Fav, will perform and host the opening night on Wednesday September 9th.”
For the uninitiated, that’s the old Luna Lounge space. This is good news to us as the multiple openings/closings of the Knitting Factory’s Manhattan location was starting to confuse us. Also: We’re glad that they chose a Brooklyn-based band to pop their cherry. You can grab tickets here.
