The Week of Amazing European Acts Selling Out Seattle Continues: First Aid Kit

Swedish sisters Johanna and Klara Söderberg have made quite the name for themselves in the handful of years that they’ve been musicians. Starting out with a demo in 2007, Johanna and Klara became the buzz of the music community the next year as the duo’s YouTube cover of Fleet Foxes’ “Tiger Mountain Peasant Song” spread far and wide – racking up 2.9 million views to date. Later that year, the sisters found themselves performing the same song in Holland with Robin Pecknold and co.

Since that time, the sisters known as First Aid Kit have delighted millions of fans with their folk-infused melodies laced with their close, heavenly harmonies through live performances and studio material. First Aid Kit also released an EP and two full length albums, the most recent the critically-acclaimed Mike Mogis-produced The Lion’s Roar from earlier this year.

The video that started it all…

FREE Live MUSIC from SEA live MUSIC: Ivan & Alyosha’s Gigs4Good Show

As we’ve said many times before, we’re big fans of music-for-a-cause type situations. When causes we believe in join forces with bands whose tunes hit our ears favorably, more often than not, we’re going to recommend that show to you as well.

Today’s even better as we’re fortunate enough to combine our love of gigs for good (or Gigs4Good if you prefer) with our love of giving away tickets to good gigs.

We’re thrilled to be able to offer you a chance to see Ivan & Alyosha and the rest of the Gigs4Good lineup at the Hard Rock this Thursday. For a chance to win a pair of tickets, just send an email to SEAliveMUSIC [at] with the subject line “You’re On To Something” by noon this Thursday.

Team Up For Nonprofits, an up-and-coming group that raises much-needed funds for other local non-profits through the intersection of music and socializing (whether in-person events or of the virtual variety), is bringing three excellent local acts together for the benefit at the Hard Rock tomorrow night. Tomorrow’s show will benefit the local volunteering powerhouse Seattle Works.

4/12 (Thursday) – Ivan & Alyosha, Yuni In Taxco, Kevin Long (Gigs4Good Show) @ Hard Rock Cafe, Doors at 7pm, Show at 8 pm, $20 Advance, $10 for students with I.D.
