Lespecial Brings Late Night Heat to Brooklyn’s Knitting Factory

Lespecial is a band sometimes best-suited for a late-night time slot, as they bring a dark and driving energy to every set they perform. The power trio, made up of Jon Grusauskas (lead guitar, keys, samples, vocals), Rory Dolan (drums, rhythms), and Luke Bemand (bass, keys), brings a varied and unique sound to every show, as they can touch on some funk grooves, some heavy metal riffs, some synthy-spacey points, a little reggae, and generally rock as hard as anyone in the scene at the moment. The band can jump between sounding like Umphreys McGee or The Disco Biscuits to Primus or Nine Inch Nails or even Sublime. They just finished a 12-show, multi-city east coast tour with reggae/hip hop group Zion I, and were happy to be returning “home” to Brooklyn for this gig at Knitting Factory.
