Oux Homegrown Residency w/ Joshua Virtue and Cocoa Greene

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.

Joshua Virtue is a writer poet and rapper based in Chicago, IL. He loves the shit out of you. He will let you know incessantly. Joshua Virtue is a writer, musician, and all around classy dude with a chip on his shoulder and a fart on his sleeve. He considers himself a prophet. He considers you a prophet too.

Cocoa Greene embodies a vast collection of sounds. Greene is currently working on an album inspired by Dali's "The Persistence of Memory". This album follows the journey of romantic love in an unforgiving world. It begins by utilizing spatial textures to illustrate the dream-like state that is falling in love, one that is seemingly free from the restrictions of time. The album matures into a chaotic symphony when the romance meets reality, and crashes in a life that is socially constructed and structured religiously around the clock.
