The Winter 2013 East Nashville Underground festivities kicked off last night with an awesome 8 Off 8 show @ The High Watt featuring ENU alums (check out Andrew’s preview here). We’ll be bringing you preview coverage all week, so check out today’s installment which will prep you to party on Friday night, plus a little history lesson recap below!
And without further ado, here’s a run down of bands you can check out at the East Room this Friday night (2.15) – Things get going around 9pm and the party doesn’t stop until nearly 3am. Rest now!
ENU started with a humble and honest beginning in Jared and Kristyn 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.
The current space hosting ENU, The East Room, 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 Kristyn 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 awesome sponsors, the forthcoming documentary “East Side of the River” featuring ENU, and the overall buzz of things as we head into 2013, it’s obvious that ENU is quickly becoming a taste-making enterprise poised to totally take things to the next level!
