Neighborhood: West End
EXIT/IN on Nashville’s Elliston Place is one of America’s great small music venues. Since 1971, crowds have packed in year round 5+ days a week and helped build a tradition of crowd surfing and debauchery that the EXIT/IN stakes its name to. Inside, theres a hypnotizing wall which from floor to ceiling displays the names of artists and bands that have played here over the years. This list hosts names like Jimmy Buffett, the Red Hot Chili Peppers, Etta James, Johnny Cash, Steve Martin, The Smiths and on and on.
