All the Times We Had, IVAN & ALYOSHA’s first full-length album, encapsulates the personalized blend of rousing songcraft, infectious melodic hooks and thoughtful lyrical introspection that’s already endeared the band to just about anyone who’s witnessed one of their effortlessly uplifting live shows, or who’s heard either of their two prior indie EP releases.
The Seattle combo—which borrows its name from a pair of characters from Dostoevsky’s The Brothers Karamazov—delivers its songs of struggle, perseverance and spirituality with a resilient, upbeat attitude that’s reflected in their bubbly brew of stirringly strummed folk-rock guitars, surging instrumental interaction and a bright, buoyant blend of voices that reflects the band members’ family-style camaraderie, evoking a timeless pop ideal that’s as affecting emotionally as it is pleasing to the ear.
Opening the night will be: TWIN FORKS, the new project of Chris Carrabba's (Dashboard Confessional/Further Seems Forever) which includes members from Bad Books and The Narrative; and Brooklyn's THE LONE BELLOW, a group of transplanted Southerners who deliver a passionate, soulful, acoustic-based alternative rock Americana.
This show is SOLD OUT. No tickets will be available at the door.
