A Blast from the Past - The Village Subway is rising @ Cameron Village Live!  


Do you remember Raleigh's Village Subway? It was the hotbed for emerging music in the 70's and 80's. It Cameron Village Live attracted up-and-comers such as Pat Benatar, Doc Watson, REM, the Ramones and Bette Midler. The Subway (or Underground) was the place to hear live music in Cameron Village. The Underground was the movement that propelled young talent to a bigger stage.


This April 25th the underground music scene is returning to Cameron Village...this time above ground on Daniels Street, making Cameron Village the place to see, hear and taste the next big thing!


Cameron Village Live is a free event on Friday, April 25 from 6pm -10pm. CV Live is a nod to the Village's fabled history in the emergence of rock music while celebrating today's newest music and fashion. CV Live kicks off with a DJ on stage near Carolina Café. Daniels St. will be blocked off between Clark Ave. and Cameron St. Forty-five minutes of fast paced fashion, models and music will follow, featuring spring/summer trends...all available at CV boutiques! Many Village merchants will be open until 8pm that evening, offering special promotions for the event. Beer and wine sales will benefit BandTogether.


History Lesson: The Village Subway, also commonly known to as Raleigh Underground, was an The Pier underground entertainment district located underneath Raleigh's Cameron Village (near The Fresh Market). During the 1970s and 1980s, this underground network contained nightclubs, restaurants, and an arcade. Live music and entertainment consistently made appearances there.The underground music venues included the Old Arcade, the Frog and Nightgown, the Pier, Bears Den. The Village Subway, opened in 1972, was shut down in 1984 due to concerns about the fire code, drug use and customer safety.


Cameron Village Subway    

Many Cameron Village shoppers are unaware that the Village Subway even existed, but before its closing in 1984, it was full of life and entertainment, hosting many artists that are still popular today as well as many smaller acts.


The Village Subway was modeled after Underground Atlanta, a similar entertainment and shopping complex.  Both locations had a similar mix of restaurants, clubs, boutiques, and fashion stores.


The name "Village Subway" came from its New York City-like subway entrance with a long stairwell that The Love Language led to paintings of trains. There were also rectangular paintings of shops that decorated the walls.


Mark your calendars for Friday, April 25th from 6 to 10pm. The Love Language will be playing at Cameron Village. The band is signed with Durham-based Merge Records and they have played to full houses around the country including Austin, Denver and Nashville.


See you above ground at the Village Subway or Cameron Village Live.  


Now you know 'the rest of the story'!

The Beltline Buzz items are selected by our editors.  No one can pay to be featured on
The Beltline Buzz..  That's what advertising is for, and it's always labeled as such.  Selling ourselves (literally) would destroy the legitimacy, integrity, and fun of 
The Beltline Buzz.  Plus, we'd never earn your trust that way.  So we'll never make a dime off your meal at a restaurant nor a penny from the sale of the latest accessory we told you about. 


That said, on occasion, we will send out "Dedicated" e-mails on behalf of sponsors.  You'll recognize them from the subject line: "The Beltline Buzz Dedicated E-mail."  Yes, these are paid for.  And, no, we would never sell our subscriber list to anyone.  Not for any amount of money. 


We hope that you continue to enjoy your Beltline Buzz.  We look forward to delivering it.
