Showcase of Talent at The Knitting Factory in Hollywood Presents a July showcase of talent at The Knitting Factory. has a rich history in North America beginning in New York in the 80s. At the height of the disco era and the beginning of punk, The Knitting Factory was and is probably the premier artist launch pad in the United States. Moving to Los Angeles, the heartbeat of Hollywood, The Knitting Factory has doubled their professional career proving that the entertainment fun does not end or begin in New York, it is an extension of excellence.

They have a professional program beginning with the premise that they do not pay to play. You, as an artist are there because they believe in your dream; your product of music and song. The staff helps co promote the venue's events with each performer. Tirelessly, both send out flyers and promote the music of the evening. The product is a well balance evening of quality music and entertainment. The beautiful thing about The Knitting Factory is that they work hard to support all the bands that perform and the bands usually stay around to support one another.

The caring and professionalism that Buzzplay uses strikes a beat on the Independent drum of Performing Artists. They are honored that Buzzplay wants each band to sound their best and are there to help in one way or another they have what they need to succeed. Buzzplay has the first Thursday of the month at The Knitting Factory and the evenings prove to all that Rock and Roll is here to stay. Was there ever a doubt? :)

On July 7, Buzzplay will be presenting five bands for your listening and viewing pleasure - The AlterKnit Lounge at the Knitting Factory is nestled in 7021 Hollywood Blvd.

Beginning at 8:00 p.m. Amethyst, the rock pianist with a jazz edge will be sharing a little of what she showed the US troops five Middle Eastern countries while performing for the army's USA Express Touring Band.
