One Cannery Row, Nashville, TN 37203
The High Watt resides in Nashville’s Historic Cannery building. Built in 1883, the Cannery was originally a flour mill and later a place to grind coffee. The building earned it’s name when the Dale Food company bought it in 1957 and began processing food (jams, jellies, mustard, mayonnaise, peanut butter, etc.) eventually opening a restaurant called “The Cannery” in the early 1970s. The building housed a country music theatre in the late 70s and evolved into one of Nashville’s primary music venues in the 80s and early 90s. Jimmy Cliff, Jane’s Addiction, Iggy Pop, Lenny Kravitz, Midnight Oil, Greg Allman, Robin Trower among other touring acts of the time played the Cannery. The High Watt is on the second level of the massive structure with a standing room capacity of 250.
