It had to happen. The original date for Mannheim Steamroller's concert in Atwood Hall sold out quickly (there might be a seat or two left, but...). So the Anchorage Concert Association has added a second show, 7:30 p.m. on Friday, Dec. 30. Get tickets at centertix.net.
Speaking of the Concert Association, fans of Dave Grisman should enjoy tonight's concert by Sweet Plantain. This is a virtuoso string quartet that stretches the boundaries of genre to embrace Latin, jazz and toe-tapping swing. Highly recommended. Tickets are $23-$34, also at centertix.net.
