By now, most of clubland is aware of the fact that New York institution, the Knitting Factory, is about to close the doors of its current location and reopen in the new year with a brand new venue in Brooklyn.

The club will host a farewell party to commemorate their time spent on 74 Leonard St., with a Akron/Family-curated going-away fiesta on New Year’s Eve. All three stages will be put to good use that night, with performances by Dirty Projectors, Deerhoof, Deer Tick, DJ Thanksgiving, and yet-to-be-announced guests.
