Preparation for Underground

Story by David Rodriguez

Underground will be here sooner than you think. The 2012 show is scheduled to be presented on Saturday, February 11, at South Side on Lamar once again.

So what is Underground? Underground is Dallas’ Largest Live Art Event of the year! Over 50 visual artists creating in the space, 2 stages, several Djs, a 21+ Room (Blue Room), and a VIP Lounge.

Here are a few links to help you with that answer:

Welcome! Thank you for taking an interest in being a part of Underground, 2012. Underground is the largest Live Art Show in Dallas! This show has several opportunities for you to lend a hand to make it happen. We ask volunteers to select one shift during the event night (Feb. 11, either  5:30pm-9:30pm, or 9:30pm-1:30am) first. That is the most important portion to fill. If you would like to volunteer for any other opportunity given, that would be great! Here is a link to get you connected:
