Epic Fail delivers at back-to-school rally

Epic Fail, a very young Eastside rock band that last month won the Hendricks County Battle of the Bands, performed Saturday at the 4th annual Choose Respect Back to School Rally at Garfield Park.

Epic Fail -- all of whose members are 20 years old or younger -- got its start in the halls of Scecina Memorial High School in Indianapolis,
where they played in the student rock band Arisan Maru.

For Saturday's show, the band played several sets, and midway through the musicians invited Eastside Indianapolis resident, writer and author -- and singer -- Julie Young (above with the band's lead singer, Nick Smith) up on the stage to take lead vocals for three cover tunes:
AC/DC's "You Shook Me," Heart's "Barracuda" and Led Zeppelin's "Rock and Roll." Other members of the band are Aaron Hernandez (lead guitar), Mike Herrera (bass guitar), Andrew Day (rhythm guitar) and Wolfgang Amadeus McMurray (drums).

These images were from that show.
