You can change the icon of an aspect by modifying the "aspect icon" aspect of Alarm and Event object in admin structure.
Admin structure -> Inventory objects -> Aspect Category -> Alarm and Event
However, please be aware that this is a standard aspect brought in by extensions so when ever you upgrade your system, you will have to redo this changes.
Instead, you can group all event lists in an object and change the object icon.
You can do that by adding an aspect called "Object icon" and configure it with any file of type ".ico". This change will be retained in all future upgrades.
"Alarm Lists" and "Event Lists" are both instances of the same "Alarm and Event List" Aspect Type. The only difference between "event" lists and "alarm" lists is the filter used by the Alarm and Event list aspect. So alarm lists and event lists must always have the same icon - they are really the same thing. This is their "Aspect Icon"
The work around of putting "event lists" under an "event list group" object does work, but will not cover the case where you want an "Event List" aspect on another object.
It is - in theory - possible to create a user defined aspect category for event lists, by copying the standard alarm and event list aspect definition. This user defined aspect type could then be given a new Aspect icon. However, you would need to take care during system upgrades not to loose this aspect type definition.
Have a look at the aspect type category structures to get an idea of how aspect types are defined in your system. But this is a reasonably "complicated" task so you should probably take some time to consider whether this is actually worth doing.
