I'm looking forward to the big Search & Restore final night at The Knit. This is by no means the final night for Search & Restore or The Knit, but it is for that combo. Its 6 phenomenal bands with staggered overlapping sets between the Tap Bar and Main Space, 12/2, 8:30-12. Its also cheap and they hand-stamp. Even if you are going to some of the other phenomenal gigs that night, its worth ducking in and out of there for any gaps in the rest of your schedule.
Here's the schedule:
Search & Restore: Jazz In New York presents...
The FINAL NIGHT of Jazz and Improvised Music at the Knitting Factory!!
2 stages, 6 ensembles, 40 musicians!!!
The Knitting Factory is closing the doors of its TriBeCa location at the top of the new year, and planning to move to Williamsburg at some undisclosed time in the future.
On Tuesday, December 2, we'll pay tribute to the legacy of Downtown improvised music associated with the Knit, with a special showcase featuring literally tens of New York's finest musicians.
Each ensemble will perform for 1 hour, with overlapping sets between the Knit's Main Space (upstairs) and the Tap Bar (downstairs):
