Ivan and Alyosha & NYC’s Living Room
Seattle’s Ivan & Alyosha played a pair of NYC dates in March: 3/3 at Bowery Ballroom supporting Bobby Long and 3/4 at the Living Room (where these pictures come from). Since then they visited SXSW, and hopped on tour with John Vanderslice. That tour ends in Seattle on 4/21. In June they’ll return to NYC to play two free shows in one day at NYC’s World Financial Center. That’s listed like this:
Ivan & Alyosha
Presented by Arts World Financial Center and Arts Brookield
Seattle’s Ivan & Alyosha are not nihilist indie rockers, but a new brand of tender dreamers. They navigate the music world contemplating their path as a band, and, despite the uncertainty, Ivan & Alyosha’s soulful folk tunes suggest a band inspired, hopeful, and longing, unafraid to probe their collective faith and doubts. Acoustic, 12:30pm. One New York Plaza. Also full band, 5:30pm. June 23 World Financial Center Plaza, 220 Vesey Street.
UPDATE: These two shows are NOT the same day.
