Knoxville’s venue for underground music, sound, and art. We are open, show or no show, every night. Nights with no show listed are free admission bar nights, with fabulous bartenders and great platters spinning.
The Pilot Light was also the first underground venue to bring comedy to Downtown Knoxville. Joining forces with Scruffy City Comedy, in 2013 and 2014 The Pilot Light has brought dozens of amazing headlining acts in from all over the country including a recent set of Sell Out shows by Kyle Kinane.
The Pilot Light is also the weekly home of QED Comedy Laboratory, Knoxville’s experimental comedy show.
