Alter Bridge kicked butt, the problem is with the staff at the Knitting Factory. They were the ruddest bunch. They denied me a place to take my medication and would not let me back in, then was laughed at by their staff. I hope they didn't

I had to jump in here and stick up for this place after reading so many negative reviews and then going to see a hometown show for Myles Kennedy and his band Alter Bridge. First off, you won't see me complaining about spending a mere 25

Only in Spokane can a live music venue get away with such a horrible live music experience. They have recently closed off the smoking area and do not allow people to go outside. The bar area is over crowded and the bartenders pour small portions at expensive prices. The stage sound is unbalanced and random feedback happens throughout the performances. I have seen at least thirty shows here and the experience has progressively gotten worse. I have tickets for one more show and do not plan on going back, I would rather drive to Seattle or Portland.
WASTE OF MONEY AND TIME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I bought tickets for a concert there, only to arrive and find out it's stand up only, with just a handful of bar stools along the upstairs railing for early birds to sit on. My diabetic girlfriend cannot stand for long periods of time, and the sold out crowd of 1500 people were still filing into an already full house when we left. NO WHERE on TKF's website (or Ticket Master's) does it mention this is a standing only venue. We were very disappointed and will never go back

It was the best experience ever! We were there for Rancid show and i was not only impressed with the number of guests that came to the show, but most of all with the venue itself! The bar is fabulous and the backstage just perfect! The staff is super friendly and polite to everyone. We got to hang out with a band in a lounge upstairs - great view and great bar as well there. I would go again and again if i lived closer.

I attended this venue for a bluegrass concert a few weeks ago and had an awful experiences there. I have never encountered such rude staff in my life! The space and layout is great it's just the staff's attitude that needs adjustments, or major overhauls. This experience really makes me question private security in general, as cops wouldn't even be able to get away with how they deal with problems here. For example, my hand was smashed in a gate as I tried to re-enter the venue after the show to close my bar tab, and once the bleeding began they repaired it with paper towels and masking tape. You would think with all of the walky talkies attached to the "security ambassadors" belts that they would be able to find an actual first aid kit. The bar staff moved my bag and when asked where they may have placed it, acted like I was accusing them of stealing. They stole my boyfriend's water bottle on the OUT of the venue at the end of the night. Not to mention that beers cost $7 and it is really frowned upon to dance in the bar area, as you might be blocking the view of other (also rude) patrons. Despite the good music, this experience goes into the worst catagory (of the roughly 200 shows I've attended).
Please avoid this venue at all costs. There are much better places to see a show,

Pros: nice dance floor

Cons: rude service, can't bring drinks to the dance floor

I just watch the MMA fights tonight Feb 8 2008 at the Big Easy. I have to say that this was the worst example of cage fights I have ever seen in Spokane. The fight card was changed a number of time. I guess fight weight and skill level does not matter when matching up fighters, it seemed to me that putting warm bodies into the ring is all that mattered. The matches where horrible and overall it was very unimpressive. The BJJ was no good; the submission grappling was under par and the stand-up us sloppy. I would have to say on a rating of 1-10 this fight was a 2. The service was bad, the food was ok and the credit card machine was down at the end of the night. So I have to hope they charge my card correctly. This town needs a new promoter that actually knows how to promote a fight and who does not worry just about making money and start caring about the sport. I think Spokane can only handle this poor example of mixed martial arts before they stop supporting the fights. That will be a sad day!

Pros: It's big, good lights ok seating

Cons: food, service, fights where not good and the promoter needs to find a new job
