Then the Knitting Factory moved to Tribeca. Still later to Williamsburg. Michael Dorf was forced out, and opened City Winery, a great place for live music but with a solidly AOR older folks program (Need a Suzanne Vega or Steve Forbert fix? This is your dealer). But now, Bloedow and longtime collaborator Jennifer Charles (they're the band Elysian Fields) are opening a connoisseur's music club on Rogers. Remember Tonic? Know Zorn's "The Stone?" If you do, expect a similar vibe and wonderfully reckless curation.
One big smile on the Q's face as I post this link from DNA Info. Set to open this Fall at 497 Rogers.
