With all of the Iowa Arts Festival excitement from last weekend, you may have missed some of the other shows taking place. Long after guitarist Sonny Landreth had finished up on the festival main stage, Merlin and Mad Monks were still rocking hard at Gabe’s.
Merlin was first to hit the stage, mixing hard rock with haunting synth for good measure. Mad Monks, a three piece rock group, came on soon after to keep the show going late into the night. Be sure to check out the following clips to see what you missed, rock aficionados.
