Quick Takes

Knitting Factory closing set

September 24, 2009|Todd Martens

The days are officially numbered for Hollywood's Knitting Factory. A spokesman said the club will host its last show on Oct. 25, with pop-punk band Hit the Lights currently booked on the venue's final day.

The Knitting Factory's flier for its final Hollywood shows teases that a new venue is opening in 2010. Bruce Duff, the club's head of promotion and publicity, said nothing has yet been finalized on a new locale, although "several are in the running."

The Knitting Factory opened in Hollywood in 2000, about a year before the official opening of the outdoor mall at the nearby intersection of Hollywood Boulevard and Highland Avenue. The neighborhood has undergone significant changes since the club had its debut. A Virgin Megastore has opened and closed, and the club now sits on the end of a tourist-friendly stretch of Hollywood Boulevard that is home to a Gap, a Hooters, an H&M and Grauman's Chinese Theatre.
