Knitting Factory announced its location in Brooklyn, NY will close on August 21st.

The historic venue’s Brooklyn location opened its doors in 2009, replacing Luna Lounge at 361 Metropolitan Ave, following the closure of its Tribeca location. The club launched with a concert by Les Savy Fav.

In a statement posted to social media, Knitting Factory expressed thanks for many years of support and said it was time for the club to reinvent itself once again.

To our BK friends and family – we are saddened to announce that our time in Williamsburg is coming to an end. We will be closing our doors for the last time on August 21st.

The past 13 years have been incredible, and we could not be more proud of our stay on Metropolitan Ave. We are going to miss the live music and comedy that graced the stage more than we can say. But it is time for the Knit to (once again) reinvent itself.

Thank you for welcoming us into your community way back in September 2009 (Les Savy Fav was our first show!) and for your unwavering support over the years, especially the last 24 months. But we couldn’t have done any of it without our wildly talented crew, both past and present. Thanks for sticking it out with us.

Stay tuned for what’s to come and some final show announcements. In the meantime, come say goodbye and catch a show while you can.

Don’t fret, you’ll see us again in the coming months…
