About "Ivan and Alyosha" (from their website bio) "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."

OCTOBER 11 TRAFFIC ALERT! (from the State Theatre website) "As you prepare for this Friday’s NEEDTOBREATHE “Breaking Ground Tour” concert, we wanted to make sure you were aware that the concert is occurring on the same evening as Penn State’s Homecoming Parade. Since traffic will be heavy… and parking limited… we recommend you allow yourself additional time to get in/through State College… find parking… possibly have dinner… and enjoy the PSU Homecoming Parade (it will pass in front of The State Theatre!) all before the NEEDTOBREATHE concert.
Below are some details (as provided by the Downtown State College Improvement District) regarding traffic changes on FRIDAY, October 11, 2013.
- All meters along College Ave. will be bagged by 2pm.
- Traffic into the downtown on East College Ave. from University Drive will be detoured starting at 5:45pm.
- Streets intersecting College Avenue along the parade route will be closed starting at 5:45pm.
- A Borough clean-up crew will sweep the parade route just after it finishes, cleaning and opening up the streets.
- Meter bags and tape should be removed by the Homecoming Committee immediately after the parade passes.
- The parade is estimated to finish at 8:30pm.
Please take these traffic changes into consideration as you prepare for a very enjoyable evening with us at The State Theatre.
The doors to the theatre are scheduled to open at 7:30pm. Ivan & Alyosha take the stage at 8:30pm with NEEDTOBREATHE taking the stage at 9:30pm."
