Foresight w/ John Hawkwood's Blackfoot Sun & Sunday Cruise - 7pm | $10

  • Uncommon Ground (lakeview) 3800 N Clark St Chicago United States (map)


An up and coming up Indie Rock band, Foresight has been gaining attention mad crazy, earning airtime on several local radios, podcasts, and interviews. Foresight has attracted over 1400 likes and followers on facebook and instagram in the past half year alone, and don't plan on stopping any time soon! Foresight's sound is unique, and abhores the idea of having two songs sounding remotely the same. Vaughn experiments with completely new ideas from single to single, and does his darndest to keep the listeners on their toes. His combination of harder indie rock riffs with artistic tone, use of classical instruments and synthesizers creates a nice uniqueness to the music. His style can vary from aggressive, smooth, dynamic, and even quirky. Regardless, the music is always filled with passion, power, and energy to hopefully make you feel better about your life.

John Hawkwood's Blackfoot Sun was rechristened in the summer of 2018 when G. M. H. Thompson became disillusioned by the musical direction the first band he started, Thee Oswalds, seemed to be taking. Despite playing the RFT's ShowcaseSTL 2018 & opening Whiskey War Fest 2018, Thee Oswalds seemed to be getting faster & louder, & G. M. H. was sick of it. People couldn't hear any of the vocals or guitars most of the time. Music was supposed to be better than this. Music was supposed to be beautiful. That was the raison d'êtra for renaming the band John Hawkwood's Blackfoot Sun & replacing most of the personnel (everyone but G. M. H. Thompson was fired & replaced).

      Listening to the solo work of Nico, John Cale, Iggy Pop, Lou Reed, Bowie, & being broadly inspired by acts such as The Velvet Underground, The Stooges, Roxy Music, Marc Bolan's T. Rex (& also Tyrannosaurs Rex), Le Orme, The Beach Boys, The Bee Gees, Phil Spector, & King Crimson opened his mind to the mesmerizing directions music can develop in if the mindless clichéd dictates of genre are examined artistically & challenged when they prove to be unaesthetic, always with an eye to uniting both pop & high art.

Sunday Cruise is an Indie/Alternative/Emo band from Elgin, IL. Comprised of Zoe, Devin, Noelle, and Eric, they have nothing to their names but 6 pennies they found in a local Walmart trash bin. They all died of radiation poisoning in 2019 when they were offered a "surprise" gig in Chernoble, it just so happened that every one of them failed history class so they are dead.
