NPR “Artist to Watch” Illiterate Light Release Tribute to Basement East

Read Time:1 Minute, 21 Second

Illiterate Light have shared a live performance of “Carolina Lorelei” from Basement East during what became one of the last few shows at the iconic venue, just two days prior to the devastating tornado that touched down in Nashville. It was an incredible show, one we’ll surely be reminiscing on for the rest of the year. View our photos from the concert here, and check out the footage from the performance:

A message from Illiterate Light:

“When we started touring heavily in 2017, Nashville quickly became a second home for us…so it truly meant the world to finish out our winter tour with a packed house at the Basement East this past February. It was a magical night…cold outside, hot inside, sweaty, singing, crowd surfing, staff made us feel like family, seeing friends and family after living on the road for a couple months…a rowdy homecoming. Little did we know that two days later the Beast would be destroyed by a massive tornado that swept through Nashville. The news was devastating and we’re so thankful that no one was hurt. The Basement East is now rebuilding and looking to reopen by the end of the year. We hope you dig this version of “Caroline Lorelei” live from The Basement East – February 29, 2020 #NashvilleStrong

PS – so many of the venues that we’ve toured over the last couple of years are at serious risk of not making it through the pandemic. Please visit to learn more and send a letter to legislators asking for specific solutions that will help keep these venues alive.
