Uncommon Ground’s GROUND UP SHOWCASE is a monthly event, featuring the very best emerging local talent, hand picked from our weekly open mic competitions!


Originally from Bloomington IL, Megan Hosack is a singer/songwriter and comedienne living in Chicago. Her music style is alt rock/pop with a little bit of folk too- just to keep you rascals on your toes. She has performed in The Milwaukee Comedy Festival, Chicago Women’s Funny Fest, The iO Theater's Bentwood Comedy Festival, and has played music in venues all around the city such as The Elbo Room, The Second City, The iO Theater, The Annoyance Theater, The Playground Theater, CIC Theater, and Gallery Cabaret.


Sam Lallas has been actively creating music for around eight years. A year and a half ago she released her first official album, The Other Side of Fear. Since its initial release date, it has gathered over 300, 000 streams, but most importantly, it allowed Sam to share her journey navigating early adulthood. Sam's musical inspiration comes from the early wave of singer/songwriters such as Carole King and Joni Mitchell. Sam's goal with her music is to evoke emotion in people by sharing honest lyrics and vulnerable vocals. She wants people to feel a sense of universal connection when they hear her music. Sam is currently working on a new album that is expected to be finished within the year.

8:33 is a band that has been steadily growing in the Chicago music scene. With influences coming from all genres of music, the trio is always attempting to create a sound that you just can't pinpoint. From fast pace hip-hop, to smooth atmospheric, melodic R&B, to simple acoustic performances filled with harmonies, storytelling and vibes; 8:33 stands out in Chicago as a band you may not be able to pinpoint but you'll full in love with regardless.
