NYC show at Knitting Facotry CANCELLED. here's their excuse  Reply with quote  

Due to a rising tide of anti-Knitting Factory sentiments among several of our unrelenting, politically connected neighbors who would like to see us located somewhere other than on their block (even though we were here first), we need to take immediate measures to placate them. This means re-soundproofing our Main Space, which in turn means a massive construction project that calls for the space to be closed for longer than we'd like. Unfortunately, this schedule includes a date that you are supposed to play, and we have to cancel it. We have tried hard to avoid any interruptions in the schedule, but the neighbors are dictating this time frame, and nothing other than immediate action will satisfy them. It's this, or being closed for good.

Hopefully in the end, we'll no longer be distracted by the neighbors and we can get back to focusing on the music, the artists, and the audience.

I apologize for this, and will make it up to you. Please feel free to contact me with any other questions, or to schedule a make-up date.

Best,
matt

same shit has happened in phoenix, Nita's hideaway(probably the coolest venue in the whole city) was trying to relocate to a bigger area and the neighborhood was petitioning and trying to get the city to stop them, so they cancelled all their hardcore and hiphop shows to prevent any incidents from happening, hiphop nights got cancelled and an anticon tour stop....which amused me cause anticon shows are probably the last place your gonna see any voilence

Nah, Knitting Factory is a dope venue, but this news sucks something proper.

Throw Lif on the bill and pack the Bowery Ballroom. Either that or play S.O.B.'s, you'll pack that place handily even though I think the venue is on the lame side.

Too bad.

Why hasn't their website posted anything about this yet? You'd think it's information that they'd want to get out to the public, considering it's supposedly "massive".

Knowing the situation at the knit, ( I promote over there, I did the last Sage show with Alias) what he's telling you isn't a lie. They have serious problems with the neighbors near there. Their liquor license is up for review and the neighbors are trying to shut them down. They build a huge luxury condo next to the club and then complain about noise. Didn't they realize they were building next to a club? From what I understand Adam Yauch & Irv Gotti have apartments there, so you can see the kind of money we are talking about. It probably doesn't make you feel any better but he's being straight up with you.

We have a show in Brooklyn,NY on the 29th in a venue equal in size to the knit. We'd love to have you as a special guest. Hit up Dom at the email above or me at loud@louddigital.com if you're interested.
