One of Nashville's most venerable and storied music venues, Exit/In has been presenting live music since 1971. Concertgoers can fill empty ear canals with John Doe and Jill Sobule's wafting harmonies during their debut duet performance or listen to the Californian alternative hip-hop artist Lyrics Born's verbal dexterity and wicked wordplay, the hard-earned fruit of a diet of pulped thesauruses. The Grammy Award-winning, Austin-based Latin funk orchestra Grupo Fantasma will appear with fiddling sensation Warren Hood, who exhibits devil-humbling command over his stringed instrument. The American blues and rock band Old Union will be celebrating its 10th anniversary in the city where they got their start with a commemorative concert of classics for old fans and new listeners alike. A standing-room venue, Exit/In eschews seating for upright toe-tapping and ample space to practice leg lifts in between encores.
