The current incarnation of the Knitting Factory has resided in the former Luna Lounge Brooklyn space since 2009. The original New York City Knitting Factory was an institution in New York’s live music scene for most of its existence, from 1987-2009. The Knitting Factory has since grown into a nationwide promotion company, hosting cross-country tours and venues from Boise to Reno. The professionalism of the operating company is definitely apparent-you’ll be hard pressed to find a venue with a DIY vibe and consistently clean bathrooms. If you’re unsure about the bands playing, you can go to the bar area and watch through the see-through window. God knows the music will be loud enough to hear.
