Strictly 18+

Icarus Lives introduced themselves to the stage with an eerie instrumental track that could be straight out of a Halloween horror movie. From the opening note, all band members were windmilling in sync while delivering thrashy guitar riffs and melodies that encouraged sing-a-longs. It’s always great to see women who rock and vocalist Sara Murray is clearly inspiring young women; She was seen taking photos with young fans at the conclusion of the bands set.”
