The New Standards Holiday Show 2018

Tradition with a twist

Dec. 1, 2018

7:30 p.m. // Discovery Theatre

For more than 10 years The New Standards and friends have been dazzling audiences with their soulful, funny, and spectacular holiday show. Ring in the yule with a unique twist on traditional holiday concerts — one part variety show, one part homage to the season, one part irreverent, freewheeling spectacle.

Known for their simple and illuminating concerts that dress up pop and punk classics, The New Standards – Chan Poling (The Suburbs), John Munson (Semisonic), and Steve Roehm – act as ringleaders for a merry troupe of musicians, dancers, and a stunning lineup of surprise special guests featuring local and not-so-local pals.

Expect the unexpected at what will surely become your new holiday tradition.

Tickets start at $32 with a subscription of 3 or more shows. Tickets for just this show start at $40.25.


Due to the massive earthquake Friday morning in Anchorage, Anchorage Concert Association must cancel tonight’s performance of The New Standards Holiday Show in the Discovery Theatre. Saturday night’s performance is still scheduled to happen.

People who purchased tickets to Friday night’s performance of The New Standards Holiday Show can switch to Saturday night. Call the CenterTix box office at 907-263-2787 to move to Saturday’s performance. People who purchased tickets to either performance and are unable to make it due to the earthquake can get refunds next week. Anchorage Concert Association subscribers can switch tickets to another upcoming performance in the season.

We apologize for any inconvenience and hope to see you soon. Stay safe!
