Annie Hardy, Melissa Brooks (The Aquadolls), and Joe Cardamone—former leader of the underground band The Icarus Line—will perform tonight at the premiere of the new film THE ICARUS LINE MUST DIE.
On Thursday night, the Alumni Screening Series at USC presents a free preview of the narrative feature, followed by a Q & A with director and co-writer Michael Grodner.
And after the Friday night show at the Royal cinema, Cardamone—the film’s star—will join Grodner for another Q & A.
A blend of autobiography and fiction set deep inside L.A.’s music scene, ICARUS LINE co-stars Jerry Stahl, Ariel Pink, Keith Morris, and Rafael Reyes.
Pink Mountaintops, Together Pangea, Retox, Obliterations, Annie Hardy of Giant Drag, and The Icarus Line perform in the film.
