Whoever you are, wherever you come from, nothing can prepare you for the power and grandeur of The Whippet Beans’ rock-operatic Icehawk. This epic tells the captivating tale of a boy rescued from the sinking Titanic by a polar bear, raised by Arctic creatures, before becoming the greatest vigilante superhero of our time, bringing robbers and thieves to justice… it goes on. They say DC and Marvel are preparing to fight for the rights to make the film as we speak.

Heralded by gentle acoustic guitar, a picture of bardic types around their campfire at night is painted before launching into heavy choruses, packed throughout with passionate solos. Encounter the might of Icehawk’s spirit in concert at Newcastle’s Little Buildings on Saturday 2nd April. If ye dare!
