The Basement East will reopen with events on March 4, 5 and 6, for what it is describing as “a much needed socially distanced hang to commemorate one year since the tornado ravaged our city.”
The beloved music venue in East Nashville was heavily damaged during the March 2020 storm. The 5,000 square foot space has since been repaired, including getting a new roof, and is ready to receive fans.
On Thursday and Friday, March 4 and 5, there will be DJ sets from 5 p.m. until 1 a.m. On Saturday, March 6 the party moves to the 2,000 square foot deck with performances by The Minks, The Tigerbeats, Lilly Hiatt, Adams Street Trio, India Ramey and Tim Easton from 3 until 7 p.m., followed by DJ Spice J at 8 p.m.
In an Instagram post announcing the reopening event, The Beast thanked fellow venues Mercy Lounge, Nashville Urban Winery and Marathon Music Works for loaning them tables and chairs for the weekend.
The venue has outlined a core safety policy including face coverings and temperature checks. Click here for more details.
