Though R. Stevie Moore’s upcoming performance at Exit/In won’t be the first time he’s rocked Nashville, it will likely be the most monumental of his local appearances. Backed by the young Brooklyn garage band Tropical Ooze, the iconic lo-fi legend and “former ex-Nashvillian,” as our own Steve Haruch recently coined him, is blazing through Music City on his inaugural tour — despite having issued his debut Phonography during the Ford administration. Indeed, after three decades spent writing and refining the D.I.Y. playbook — Moore has self-released over 400 albums through his eponymous Cassette Club, most from a single bedroom apartment in Montclair, NJ — the son of an Elvis sideman is hitting the road with a documentary film crew “in the hopes of getting picked up by a label and never having to Kickstart again.” I think we’re supposed to laugh at Moore’s statement of purpose here (his legend has in-part been enhanced by the industry’s consistent refusal to grant him the credit he’s due), but not without a tacit acknowledgement of his influence, which this pioneering army of one rightly holds close to his chest. This night will be bizarre, comedic and perhaps never repeated — don’t miss it. Tropical Ooze and locals Action! open.
