I miss live music.

Illiterate Light are one of my top new bands of 2020. They’ve just followed up their self-titled debut with a live EP. It makes for bitter-sweet listening.

Two of the new recordings were made here in Nashville, at indie venue Basement East. It was all but destroyed in March of this year by a tornado.

I miss live music. More than that, my heart goes out to all those in the arts struggling to make it through this pandemic.
