Cervantes Other Side

Cervantes Other Side was packed just past the 11:00 PM hour as Iron Horse took the stage for this surprise show. The show would mark the first in a weekly bluegrass series at Cervantes called "Grass For That Ass," and what better way to kick it off than with bluegrass powerhouse, Iron Horse? One near flawless rock cover turned into another, with tracks from Led Zeppelin, Modest Mouse, Metallica and more, before Bridget Law (Elephant Revival) took the stage. As if folks weren't already clearly enjoying themselves, the added fiddle elevated the level of energy and dancing from those fans in attendance, kicking off their weekend early. The energy was through the roof with the crowd tightly packed from the front of the stage to the merch table at the back of the room. The event was an overwhelming success, especially for a "surprise show," reflecting once again Cervantes' solid intuition and overall ability to put together fantastic events on the fly!
If you missed last night's special show, fear not! Iron Horse returns to Cervantes tonight (Friday March 8th), for yet another MusicMarauders Presents show! Do miss this rare treat!
