Knitting Factory Brooklyn outdid itself this year for Cinco de Mayo, bringing you some amazing world & Latin influenced Salsa and bilingual indie bands from the Tri-State area. Keeping with tradition, the fiesta aims to bring communities together as they celebrate the rich culture, heritage, and history.
