I meet up with The Rough at their practice space located downtown and get to watch them play a few songs before we sit down to do the interview. This eclectic rock band is a trio that consists of drummer and beer lover Jack Mondo, the guitarist and a man with a great taste in shoes (he happened to be wearing the same kind as me), Jesse Raderman, and Lydia Arachne, the latter taking on the role of Geddy Lee in the band, playing bass and keyboards even when they are both in the same song. She also acts as the voice of reason when the other band members get off track. After we finished the interview, Jack, Jesse and I talked about a film as Lydia reminded them that they had a show coming up and should practice.
