What is The Knitting Factory?:
The Knitting Factory (The Knit for short) Concert House in Reno is a venue for music concerts and more. The Reno Knit
is one of five similar concert houses (the others are in North Hollywood, Boise, Spokane, and Brooklyn) and part of a bigger company known as Knitting Factory Entertainment. While basically set up for concerts, the Knit occasionally plays movies and has shows that permit dancing. You'll also see lots of local bands booked to play for a hometown audience in a decent venue.
