“the most dynamic live music in New York”
The Village Underground presents the greatest most dynamic live music in New York. The Underground has become the one room in the City that all musicians want to play – so we have only the best. Talented, charismatic, fun, and never boring – you can’t have a bad time at the Underground. Certain locations have their own destiny. The “Village Underground” is located in the basement of what was once the legendary “Gerdes’ Folk City”. In the 60′s Greenwich Village spawned the folk-rock craze that swept the country, and “Folk City” was at the center of it all. Everybody who was anybody played Folk City in the 60′s. Bob Dylan, Simon and Garfunkel, Peter Paul and Mary, John Lee Hooker, Richie Havens, The Lovin’ Spoonful, Roger McGuinn, and even the Monkees were regular performers.When “Folk City” closed the country lost one of its most important proving grounds for young talent, and Greenwich Village lost its reputation as the city’s most important neighborhood for live music.When the historic space on 3rd street became available in 2000, Café Wha? owner Noam Dworman saw a chance to rekindle the musical importance of Greenwich Village. Thus the “Village Underground” was conceived to be the very best small club – ever.”If you build it they will come” the movie says. Andso it is true. Without any assurance that anybody important would really want to play a 225 seat room, the club was built from the bottom up to meet the standards of the most demanding performers.
