[X-MAS ROCK] + FRI., DEC. 22
What do you do when you want to get into the Christmas feeling, but don’t wanna ditch your rock ’n’ roll spirit? You go to an elaborate, laser-filled Trans-Siberian Orchestra concert at PPG Paints Arena. Even if you haven’t heard of TSO, you’ve probably at least heard its music in an intense, holiday-themed car commercial. The group takes traditional Christmas tunes and amps them up with electric guitars, fog machines, violins and fire. It all makes “Jingle Bell Rock” sound like a slow folk song.
3 and 8 p.m.
1001 Fifth Ave., Uptown.
$53-72. All ages.
