We started our coverage of East Nashville Underground yesterday with our preview of Friday night. Here we go again in running down the action for the Saturday afternoon session. The history lesson is repeated at the bottom, so feel free to disregard if you read it yesterday. I hope you are all getting as excited about this weekend as we are. We’ll finish out this series tomorrow with a preview of the Saturday night sesh. If you just can’t wait that long, you can check out the full line up here, and you can grab your tickets here.
11/16 – Saturday Day Action – 1pm til 7pm:
E.N.U. started with a humble and honest beginning in newlyweds Jared and Kristen Corder’s basement. They wanted a place where truly great local bands could get on a bill together in a less stuffy, less expensive “cough DRINKS cough” place than an actual venue.
Heres the Summer 2012 Recap of E.N.U.
The current space hosting E.N.U. is located at 2412 Gallatin Road, which is owned by Ben Jones of Pizza Buds and The Grass Knoll Movie Nights in 5 Points. He is an all around gentleman who is doing great things to enhance the East Nashville Community. Jared and Kristen plan to keep E.N.U. here until they outgrow the space. Then their aims will be set on an outdoor scenario along the lines of Starry Nights.
Between the amazing lineup, the sponsors, the forthcoming documentary “East Side of the River” featuring E.N.U., and the overall buzz of things it does appear that E.N.U. is poised to have it’s biggest and perhaps last truly underground hoorah! Should we hope for it or against it?
