We agree with our readers that the Big Easy is a terrific place to see concerts. Some big names have graced the Big Easy stage—Elvis Costello, The Strokes, Rob Zombie, Built to Spill, Billy Bob Thornton, Steven Segal, George Clinton, Hank Williams III and everything in between—and we see no reason that will change now that the Knitting Factory owns a big chunk of Bravo. One thing the Knitting Factory has to offer is its name. Well-known on both coasts, KF has enough pull and buying power to bring famous folks to Boise, and we think that's great. What they don't have is an investment in our local community. As Boise grows, we're happy to see outside influences coming in, we just want to know they will care about our town as much as we do.
