Thursday, March 7, is the last day to bid on more than a decade’s worth of music memorabilia from Deep South The Bar. All proceeds from the online auction will be divided among the LGBT Center of Raleigh, Kidznotes and Band Together NC, which is partnering with Inter-Faith Food Shuttle this year.
Deep South the Bar closed at the end of 2018 after 11 years of live music from over 40,000 musicians. Dave Rose, a co-founder of the parent group, Deep South Entertainment, hopes to use this as an opportunity to give back to the community that made Deep South The Bar an integral part of Raleigh nightlife for so many years.
This online auction experience offers music lovers and past patrons the opportunity to help preserve the memory of the iconic space and bid on items ranging from Aerosmith’s 1993 Walnut Creek performance set-list to Dave Rose’s personal collection of antique beer cans. Bidding will close at 5 p.m. on Thursday, March 7.
“Every item that hung on the walls or was laminated on the bar holds a special memory to me, ” said Rose. “They’re all personal and have some level of significance in the music community, and particularly to the history of Deep South Entertainment. I’m excited about the thought of some of these items landing in the hands of music-minded people who will take good care of them for many years to come – all while giving back to the community through this fundraising effort.”
