Tonight @ Art Bar, 9 p.m.
The Sheboygan sextet Icarus/Drifting classifies its sound as “Gypsy rock,” capturing a traveling vagabond vibe that touches on tender, wistful folk and dramatic, skyward alternative rock. It’s a violin-laced mix that embraces American, British and Celtic rock sounds, with particular nods to U2, Neil Young and The Frames. The band’s debut album, Relentless, divides its time between smoldering ballads and foot-stomping sing-alongs.
