Our feature Sound Check gives you a first hand look at a Rocksposed Artist that you simply can't miss!
We'll tell you who they are, why they're a must listen, and where you can find more of them.

Obviously good Rock Music can be found just about everywhere if you look hard enough, but Central Illinois continues to surprise us as an underground hot bed for great bands. The latest addition of Illinois rockers to find their way to Rocksposure are The Blushing Gun.

Hailing from a small Illinois town called The Dead Oaks (Think about it, who wouldn't want their band to be from a town called The Dead Oaks?), The Blushing Gun have created a mellow yet powerful style of that is uniquely their own.

The Blushing Gun will be playing a show this Friday in Peoria with out Artist of the Month
MINDSET EVOLUTION, and another on Saturday in Kewanee. Check below for details!

From passionate jams like "Strangers" to hard driving rock songs like "School" and "My Weakness", The Blushing Gun are a remarkably versatile band. After listening to songs off of both EPs, the depth of their song writing is evident on every track. If you haven't heard The Blushing Gun yet, I found that they continually reminded me of Incubus as I made my way through their EPs. They're just slightly more low key and minus the electronic elements that Incubus typically incorporates into their music. It leaves The Blushing Gun feeling more pure and direct than their electronic counterpart ever could.

The pairing for this Friday's show could not be a better match. The Blushing Gun bring much of the same musical diversity that Mindset Evolution are notorious for delivering. If you're near Peoria and need something to do June 17th, we can't think of a better investment in Rock than this one!
