Knitting Factory to expand Boise concert house

The Knitting Factory is set to make a series of improvements that will allow it bump up the number of concert attendees it allows inside.

The venue, located in the 8th Street Marketplace in Downtown Boise, has had a maximum capacity of 999 for years – since it opened as the Big Easy in the late 1990s.

Now, an additional restroom and changes to emergency exits will allow another 196 people in the building between the first and second floors. The existing 15,157 square foot space will not be expanded, but reconfigured to get the occupancy count up – key for a venue that runs on ticket sales.

The project will cost about $35,000.
