Vote on funding to study venues comes this week
Metro Council will vote Tuesday on whether to fund a study of Nashville's live music industry.
💲 By the numbers: The $300,000 study would be funded by:
- $260,000 in federal pandemic relief funds
- $30,000 from the Nashville Area Chamber of Commerce
- $10,000 from the Convention and Visitors Corp
Driving the news: The funds would be used to hire a consultant to examine the health of the concert industry, and to help identify possible economic incentives, historic zoning designations and other tools to protect independently owned concert venues.
- The long-time operators of a third venue, Exit/In, may soon be pushed out so that a corporation like Live Nation can run the 50-year-old club.
