With the recent closings of CBGB's and The Bottom Line, perhaps Michael Dorf, former CEO of New York City’s Knitting Factory, finally realizes what a special place he founded back in 1987. On March 1, Dorf will celebrate the 20th anniversary of his beloved “Old Knit” with a benefit concert for The Stone, a non-profit performance space in Manhattan’s Lower East Side.
The evening marks the seminal club’s survival with performances by a host of musicians who got their start at the at the venue, including Lou Reed, Laurie Anderson, John Zorn and Lee Ranaldo, among others. Tickets for the March 1st concert at New York City’s Town Hall are on sale now via Ticketmaster and range from $25 to $52.
