Ticket Giveaway - Ivan and Alyosha - 4.23.13 - Stage AE - Show Preview - Concert Preview

Ivan and Alyosha will be making a stop next Tuesday, 4.23 at Stage AE. They are touring behind their debut LP All The Times We Had out on Dualtone Records. Tim Wilson and Ryan Carbary are the Seattle based duo that make up the band. They play a charming bit of folk rock with pop-hooks embedded over layers of sound. The eleven song album album effortlessly captures the warmth and immediacy of Ivan and Alyosha’s live performances, lending added resonance to such lyrically compelling, melodically arresting tunes as “Be Your Man,” “Running for Cover,” “Don’t Wanna Die Anymore,” “The Fold” and the album’s’ bittersweet reflective title track, which features guest vocals by the band’s frequent touring partner and longstanding admirer Aimee Mann. We are happy to be giving away a pair of tickets to the show. Just email us your name at to enter.

From their press:

Ivan and Alyosha’s prior releases and live shows have won the band copious critical acclaim. They’ve also done successful stints opening for the likes of Aimee Mann, Brandi Carlile, the Low Anthem, Rosie Thomas and John Vanderslice. Since early in its existence, the group has been embraced enthusiastically by alternative radio, performing multiple on-air sessions for NPR as well as receiving notable support from such key stations as KCRW, KEXP, WFUV and WNYC.

Indeed, All the Times We Had demonstrates the positive effects of the band’s extensive roadwork, underlining just how far Ivan and Alyosha has progressed since its humble origins.“I think that we all feel pretty strongly that this is what we’re supposed to be doing, playing music, trying to write good, timeless songs, and trying to connect with people,” Wilson states. “I think that we have a pretty deep sense of purpose, that this is not just some accident. I guess that the essence of faith is having felt or experienced something that maybe you can’t hold in your hand, and I think that’s how I’d describe my attitude towards music. And it’s OK if it’s hard, because anything in life that’s worth doing is hard.

The show begins at 8p with doors at 7p. Tickets are $10 and can be found here. More information about the band at these sites:
