This was the second time I’d seen Hail The Sun and my first time seeing Stolas so I was excited for this show to begin with.
Stolas put on an incredible show that these pictures could NEVER do justice. The intensity they brought to the stage was something I look forward to seeing again next month.
Then during Hail the Sun‘s set, Donovan Melero (who plays drums and sings, simultaneously during certain songs. Then just sings others. I’ve never seen anything like it) saw me singing “Dead Messages”, so he came into the crowd, put his arm around me and let me sing the rest of the song with him. That is for sure a moment I’ll never forget.
There’s a playlist below with Stolas and Hail The Sun‘s set lists, in order.
I couldn’t locate Icarus The Owl‘s set list so check them out on YouTube, HERE!
