From 1974 to 1984, the \"Underground,\" a space near the back of Cameron Village in Raleigh, was the sight for retailers, restaurants, and music clubs. Many bands--local and famous--performed in the \"Underground,\" including R.E.M., The Connells, the Fabulous Knobs, and Iggy Pop. After receiving some press in 2013, an outdoor concert and charity fundraiser, \"The Underground Rises,\" took place, and this year, tickets were sold to a pricey event in the Underground itself--a celebration of the space before it disappears forever.

The Movement: 50 Years of Love and Struggle, by Ron Jones', brings to life the last fifty years in civil rights and African American culture. Oh What a Lovely War tackles the responses of British culture to World War I.
