On Sunday, September 25, the quintet–Micah Pueschel (lead vocals/guitar), Adam Taylor (bass), Joseph Dickens (drums), Cayson Peterson (keyboard/synth) and Micah Brown (guitar/vocals)–is set to headline the Huntridge Stage at Las Vegas’ Life Is Beautiful performing from 10:50-11:35pm. Prior to their festival appearance, IRATION will play a special acoustic set for X107.5FM KXTE on Saturday, September 24 at 11pm at The Gold Spike Hotel in Las Vegas.
