Rough CutRough Cut, November 4Enjoy a night of music with pop, rock and blues group Rough Cut Thursday, November 4 at 8:30 p.m. at Mayne Stage.

Soaring vocals and angry guitars combine with a relentless rhythm section to form a radio friendly sound, only matched by that of their live sets which have been described as "refreshing," "crisp" and "loud." Rough Cut started as an unproven local band at the bottom of the Chicago music scene and has evolved into a headlining, weekend act at just about every major venue in their home city as well as a consistent success for talent buyers in unproven cities.
