The American Dance Festival has packed up for the season -- its season shortened by one week due to declining philanthropy, WRAL notes, though ticket sales have been up, perhaps due to the presence of the DPAC in the mix? -- but you're not at a loss for downtown summer entertainment just yet.
Downtown's Warehouse Blues series kicked off this past Friday; a partnership between Durham Parks & Rec, the Music Maker Relief Foundation, and West Village, the series brings the blues downtown with summertime Friday concerts from 6-8 pm in a courtyard off Morgan St. at the renovated tobacco factories.
The remaining performances for this summer include:
- July 31: Drink Small with Profit and Sandridge
- August 7: John Dee Holeman with Abe Reid and Jake Hollifield
- August 14: Adolphus Bell and Dr. Burt
- August 21: Mudcat
- August 28: Boo Hanks and George Higgs
- September 4: Cool John Ferguson
