Close your eyes and imagine you’re transported to a dance club in Cuba in the late ‘40s – that relentless rhythm you hear is the heartbeat of Orquesta Akokán. Since bursting onto the global music scene only four years ago, these Grammy-nominated fireballs have lit up stages worldwide, including selling out Lincoln Center, and topped NPR Music’s annual “Best of” lists with grooves “as intense as a runaway train.” Sept. 30, 2022, in the Atwood Concert Hall. 


Don’t be fooled by the name – when Houston band The Suffers step on stage, there’s a combustible force so strong it can cure just about anything. “This band is on fire,” asserts NPR’s Bob Boilen, giving you “soul, straight from horn to heart.” Nov. 5, 2022, in the Atwood Concert Hall. 


Portland Cello Project is no stranger to Alaska, the genre-bending string collective has become a perennial favorite in Anchorage. This year, they’re ringing in the yule Alaska-style with the Portland Cello Project Holiday Show, joining local guest artists for this unique twist on the traditional holiday concert — one part variety show, one part homage to the season, one part freewheeling spectacle. Dec. 2-3, 2022, in the Discovery Theatre. 


Shawn Colvin, Marc Cohn & Sarah Jarosz come together onstage for a special evening. Gather together for a special night of heartfelt music with these songwriting masters. Feb. 2, 2023, in the Atwood Concert Hall. 


Mechanical wonders, circus gadgetry, and astonishing acrobatics – it’s all part of Cirque Mechanics Zephyr, the circus visionaries breezing into Anchorage again with their new show. Inspired by the power of the wind – and the human ingenuity that goes into harnessing it. Feb. 3-4, 2023 in the Atwood Concert Hall. 


The Daily Show has won 24 Primetime Emmy Awards over its 20+ year reign as TV’s top satirical news and talk show. Now, four brilliant, Emmy-nominated Daily Show comedy writers are stepping out from behind their desks and into the spotlight for The Daily Show Writers Comedy Tour. Mar. 10-11, 2023, in the Discovery Theatre.
