The Knitting Factory has officially left Manhattan for Brooklyn, taking over the old Luna Lounge space on Metropolitan in Williamsburg. And it looks fly. They completely overhauled the unnecessarily vast room that served as Luna's main space, and split it into two spaces: the live room and the bar (from which you can see the stage). The design playfully evokes a low-budget basement recording studio, with classic pegboard walls backing the stage, and a glass window embedded stage left, where the sound engineer's room would be. The venue officially opens tonight with Les Savy Fav; and here's their upcoming lineup. How will they fare in such a venue-heavy neighborhood?
