Special guests will include Pamyua, Melissa Bledsoe Fischer and Brenda Vulgamore. The concert, which starts at 7:15 p.m., will be preceded by a silent auction and reception catered by Marx Brothers. Tickets for the event are $50 at and, depending on availability, at the door. As always, 100 percent of the proceeds benefit the food bank. More info at

Lace 'em up

An Anchorage women's running team is training for a marathon when their coach goes missing. Is it an abduction? An unannounced trip? Or just a really, really long solo run along the remote trails of the city? A detective arrives to gather details from the team members as they wrestle with how to continue as a group. Local playwright Arlitia Jones' latest play, "Come to Me, Leopards," will be performed at Cyrano's, 413 D St., at 7 p.m. Thursday-Saturday and 3 p.m. Sunday through Nov. 17. Tickets are available at
