“Indigo Girls at DPAC”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

Second time this year to see the Indigo Girls and Shadow Boxers in concert. The acoustics in this place are terrific, seats are comfortable and roomy. Nice area for waiting outside the auditorium. Parking is reasonable and close by. Great place for a concert.

“Great place to see a show!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 19, 2012

The DPAC is right in the middle of Downtown Durham. It is a HUGE theater that tends to bring in some really big name performers. The building is in great shape and the seats are very comfortable. There is a ticket booth on the inside of the lobby. I would suggest buying your tickets there, as the staff is helpful in showing you which seats are available and the best ones left to pick from.

There are parking ramps available, and for those that have handicap parking permits, there are many spaces right in front of the theater that are on a street that isn't that busy.

This is a very modern building, and a cool sight to see if you are in Durham, NC.

“Nice venue, overpriced drinks”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

This venue pulls in great acts. It's new so it's very nice and clean on the inside, but the drinks are overpriced and the people there aren't the most friendly.

“DPAC Bonnie Raitt”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 15, 2012

DPAC is a fantastic room to listen to any musical performance. The acoustics are pristine and I literally don't believe there is a bad seat in the house. I wish the volume was just a bit louder, this was a rock concert after all. Second show I've seen at DPAC and I'd definitely go back. Lots of places to eat within walking distance.
