Homegrown Residency at Uncommon Ground is a monthly residency offering a emerging Chicago musicians a fertile bed to plant their roots and grow. Every Tuesday for one month, a new emerging band tests their new material, reveals their ongoing process and are joined by hand picked musical guests.
August's resident is Oux!
Oux is a Chicago based, experimental hip-hop/pop duo influenced by artists like Bjork, Childish Gambino, Frank Ocean and SOPHIE. They released their first single “i sleep skeptical,” in January of 2018, and followed it up with a second single “mosquito bites,” in March of 2018. They began performing live at Chicago house shows and venues in August of 2018 when Natalie moved to Chicago from LA to live with Manae.
$1 out of the cover charge of $10 will be donated to Black and Pink. Black and Pink's mission is to abolish the criminal punishment system and to liberate LGBTQIA2S+ people/people living with HIV who are affected by that system, through advocacy, support, and organizing.
Just Jax: Jax Ovalle is a multi-instrumentalist who started her performance career as the bassist and front-woman of the Latina punk band, Cabrona. As a result of deep burnout, she left the band and took a break from music in late 2017. In 2018, she began to write for a deeply personal project named "Love Letters To Myself" as an ode to her self-love journey. While still in development, she is currently sharing parts of the project through small shows in Chicago and through a photo/poetry series on Instagram.
