Fate + Melanie, Liv Lombardi, and Rebecca Jasso - 7pm | $10

  • Uncommon Ground (Edgewater) 1401 West Devon Avenue Chicago, IL, 60660 United States (map)


Fate + Melanie are a folk duo based out of Murray, KY. Using Appalachian style finger-picking traditions, Americana harmony, and insightful lyricism, they create a sound both familiar and unique. Spinning traditional tableaus into more realistic -- whether that be more harsh or soft -- narratives of love, loss, and endurance between fluctuating levels of the two. Fate McAfee is set to release his second LP, Diesel Palomino, in March. Melanie's first LP, Allegoria, is set for release in June.

Chicago based, singer songwriter Liv Lombardi continues to build her dedicated fan-base through her soulful vocals and radically honest stylings. Liv released her third studio album “Freedom Girl” in 2017. With similar folk roots, Freedom Girl developed into a more universal story than that of the internal representation of her previous two albums. In 2012, Liv released her debut album "Self-Medicate" which went on to win the New Mexico Music Award for Best Pop CD. Liv has been featured on After Ellen’s 15 Lesbian, BI & Queer Musical Artists You Need To Know, The Advocate, NPR Sessions at Studio A, Daytrotter and Folk Radio UK.


Chicago native Rebecca Jasso is a singer/songwriter who playfully writes around the themes of love, loneliness, and fantasy, skillfully weaving her melodies into the harmonic fabric of her fingerstyle guitar playing.
Music has had a strong hold over Rebecca since childhood. At age 10, she took up the guitar, and since the very beginning, sought to write good songs. Despite learning at this young age, it wasn't till after college that she worked up the confidence to take her music to the stage. For years she oscillated between playing solo and in bands, with each wave bringing her closer to chiseling out a style that would be her very own.
A visual artist, Rebecca conjures images with her lyrics to insert you into pictures from her own imagination. From soft, autumnal landscapes, to dark, Narnian scenes, each song is a journey into a new story. Her honest voice and beautiful songs will absolutely charm you.
