Ivan & Alyosha's record release show, Saturday at the Showbox Market, completely sold-out. Boasting a lineup that included the Smokey Brights and Kris Orlowski, who was accompanied by the Passenger String Quartet, it was a night filled with a high energy, from a crowd eagerly anticipating Ivan & Alyosha's first full-length record. The set showcased what the band excels at—heartfelt and literary lyrics, coupled with catchy acoustic melodies. The accompaniment
from the string quartet made for a beautiful live set from this
up-and-coming band.
