LeAnder takes a big leap in their journey with their November 14th show at Exit/In.
Nashville is a special place, where the majority of people in a crowd at a concert dream of being on the stage themselves. When the opportunity to move from the crowd to the stage happens in one venue, it’s especially exciting. To play the same stage as so many of your favorite bands is an experience that not many people get. After being in the crowd for so many performances at Exit/In, LeAnder has that opportunity to move to the stage on November 14.
Exit/In is something of a rite of passage venue in the Nashville music scene. Before becoming rock music stars and legends, artists we know and love today played the Exit/In stage – the Ramones, The Police, Red Hot Chili Peppers, Johnny Cash, Billy Joel, Kings of Leon, Tom Petty, Paramore, Ryan Adams, the list goes on. Exit/In single-handedly altered the music scene of Nashville when the doors opened in 1971 by changing the country music town into the hot bed of indie alternative music it is today. That tradition continues as young artists like COIN, Bad Suns, Oh Wonder, and Isaiah Rashad play the Exit/In stage in hopes of reaching the level of those who came before them.
The history and importance of Exit/In isn’t lost on LeAnder; they want to share this opportunity with everyone who has helped them to this point. The local indie music scene in Nashville isn’t competitive. Each artist wants to succeed, and they want every other artist to succeed as well. LeAnder invites their friends Josh Noren, Wakeville, and The Riflery to join them on the historic stage for a night of celebration of their music and the local indie community.
