90’s nostalgia was at an all-time high on March 6th at the Knitting Factory in Brooklyn. The new champions of alt. punk and indie rock, the Sidekicks and Cheap Girls, were on the bill and nearly everyone in attendance had securely fashioned their loose-fitting flannels and Rivers Cuomo glasses. The Knitting Factory is neatly divided into two segments: in the front is the bar with seating, video game consoles and a no-charge ATM; while the back room is where the stage is located along with its own bar. It’s a cozy environment and exactly the type of place to see bands that might be too explosive for a basement, but not quite large enough to sell out a stadium.
