Music: Iron Fest

There is more to Rock & Roll than just sex, drugs and partying. Sure, those are big parts of the experience and a hell of a lot of fun, but in between all the obvious benefits a community is built. Sadly, Cincinnati's Rock & Roll scene has lost one of it

There is more to Rock & Roll than just sex, drugs and partying. Sure, those are big parts of the experience and a hell of a lot of fun, but in between all the obvious benefits a community is built. Sadly, Cincinnati’s Rock & Roll scene has lost one of its members, “Iron” Mike Davidson.

To celebrate his memory, Dandelion Death, Banderas, Corpus Christi, Valley of the Sun, Arlis Perry, The Mudpies, Smoke Signals and more local acts will be performing at Iron Fest, a benefit show and costume party Saturday at the historic Southgate House. In addition, Iron Mike and Iron Fest merchandise will be sold to help bolster the proceeds.

The bands on the bill agreed to perform for free, so all of the money raised will go straight to where it’s most needed: to help Davidson’s family. Doors open at 7:30 p.m. Cover is $5 for 21 and up; $8 for 18 and up.
