Virtually nothing can defeat the raw power of rock music, with the possible exception of paper music. Pump your fist with this GrouponLive deal to see Sevendust at The Cuban Club. For $10, you get one general-admission ticket for Saturday, November 24, at 8 p.m. (up to a $19.45 value, including all fees).
Cheered on by a loyal fan base that’s remained intoxicated by the band's alternative heavy-metal vibe through eight studio albums, Sevendust continues to explore new shades of sound and emotion in thunderous concerts. The Atlanta-based quintet has showcased their dark but accessible sound on the Late Show with David Letterman and in the Chris Rock film Down to Earth, and they added extra spookiness to the soundtrack for Saw II. Dreadlocked lead singer Lajon Witherspoon layers alternately slick and gruff vocals over a vice-tight backing band that’s not too locked into the heavy side of the sonic spectrum to employ the occasional stuttering sampled beat or acoustic guitar groove. Live, he acts as a conduit for the energy generated by hits such as “Unraveling,” “Denial,” and “Enemy” as concertgoers thrash about in front of the stage or passionately shout “thanks for all your hard work!” at the roadies. The band will make the twilight a little darker in its stop at The Cuban Club, taking over the courtyard patio of the ornate 1916 hall in an outdoor show.
