Female Fronted Band from Decatur, Illinois!!
Anyone who is a fan of Icon For Hire is now singing that song. If you don’t understand the above line, you should really do yourself a favor and go see and Icon For Hire show! At any rate, Icon For Hire made a stop at The Garage in Burnsville, MN on their “You Can’t Kill Us” Tour. It was a relatively early show, but the venue was pretty packed when I finally got there. By the way, if you are trying to find The Garage, it is around the back of a circular builiding. Maybe I was just a little road weary, but I had a tough time finding the place! Unfortunately, there was only two bands mentioned in the event, so I missed the opening band completely. I did hear the last song as I was getting in and setting up my gear and it was pretty cool. The place was packed with people that were ready for a great show.
After a stage change, Stitched Up Heart took the stage. I’ve seen them a few times in the past and they always are entertaining. What else would you expect from a band that loves to help kitties?!? I love the amount of energy they have on stage and it’s fun to watch Mixi’s sway back and forth while she sings. She even went out crowd surfing for a bit in the middle of the set. After the show, the band could be found by their merch booth meeting fans to talk and give hugs. Stitched Up Heart still has quite a few tour dates in the near future, so head over and check their Facebook page to see if they will be near you!
