Live music creates an inimitable rapport between living, breathing performers and audiences that cannot be replicated at home no matter how many wax lips and googly eyes you glue to your stereo. Get the real deal with today's Groupon: for $24, you get one ticket to see David Gray at the Akron Civic Theatre on Tuesday, July 5, at 8 p.m. (a $39.50 value before fees, or up to a $48.15 value online, including all Ticketmaster fees).

David Gray's soothing folk-rock sounds and heartfelt lyrics have serenaded fans for nearly 15 years, earning the artist accolades for his chart-topping hits in the U.S. and U.K. Gravelly-voiced Gray mixes poetic introspection with the ethereal melodies of his virtuosic guitar to create songs that plumb soulful depths like existential octopi. On his successful Lost and Found tour, Gray will supercharge his signature acoustics with live-performance electricity, performing a bevy of songs, including numbers from his recent album Foundling. Spectators can sate aural appetites in the beautiful Akron Civic Theatre, which frames music makers under the baroquely ornate proscenium and faux-night-sky ceiling, complete with twinkling stars and gently drifting clouds. Groupon holders will be seated in the middle and rear balconies, getting a bird's-eye view of stage proceedings and orchestra-level comb-overs.

E.J. Thomas Hall

Since 1973, The University of Akron's E.J. Thomas Hall has been the center of Akron's performing arts scene. The three-level facility, which occupies three acres of The University of Akron campus, boasts a massive, 44-ton movable ceiling that can shift to enclose the first or second levels. The position of the ceiling has a dramatic effect on the hall's volume and acoustics, so it is controlled by a computer precisely managing 27 counterweights. The hall's ability to transform from an intimate one-level performance space to a vast three-level concert hall allows it to host performances of a variety of sizes and styles by university students and faculty as well as the Akron Symphony Orchestra, the Tuesday Musical Association, the Children’s Concert Society, and the Akron Youth Symphony.
