While I really don’t enjoy having to facilitate the bad news as much as I like doing the positive stuff, it comes with the territory. As someone who lives and breathes the live music scene of my Metal and Rock Metropolis, I am sad to help share the broadcast that the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn will be closing its doors this coming August. Their Facebook announcement is embedded for you down below.

It was a couple of months ago when we helped broadcast the news about the soon to come reopening of Irving Plaza (seen HERE) which was great to see because live music is something that I have missed very much. Now its time for the folks over at LPR or Le Poisson Rouge to announce their grand reopening and the first slate of gigs that are lined up. Take a look.

The Press Release:
