The Village Subway's Back One Last Time - May 16
The Cameron Village Subway will pulse with the sounds of its musical past for one night only when the Triangle is invited to the Underground Experience on Saturday, May 16th from 8pm until 12 midnight. For the first and only time since Raleigh's Village Subway closed in 1984, music and dancing will return to the iconic music center from the 70's and 80's.

Raleigh residents who experienced the Underground of the 1970s in the Cameron Village Subway will thrill to the opportunity to revisit the iconic music venue. More recent 'relocators' and younger Raleighites might be only familiar with the urban legends of Raleigh's cavernous ghost of a musical past; but now have a singular chance to go underground and return to an era of live musical performance and high energy nightlife for an extraordinary last time.

One night access to the 20,000 square foot space beneath Cameron Village will present live music by CRUSH, featuring all the classic hits from the seventies and eighties. Plus, party-goers will enjoy the exceptional spring runway show... a fast-paced, high fashion event choreographed to live music and presented in the style of New York fashion week. The inimitable opportunity to return to one of the amazing venues that housed the explosive growth of rock music will never be repeated.

Cameron Village invites everyone to join the party & enjoy the spring 2015 runway show benefitting Inter-Faith Food Shuttle's BackPack Buddies program. Tickets to the one time only event will be available through etix and are sure to go very quickly. Tickets will include all evening access, fashion show, food and limited beverage coupons.
VIP tickets ($125) will include: VIP area, reserved seating, Swag Bags, free beer/wine, 2 cocktail tickets, hors d'oeuvres, and valet parking. General tickets are $85 and include: admission, 2 beer/wine tickets, and hors d'oeuvres.

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.
