Athfest 2011: Chilling with the tunes of Hot Cha Cha and Turf War

Saturday, June 25th, 2011
Hot Cha Cha & Turf War

After being outside in the sunlight nearly all day, stepping into the Caledonia was like getting sucked into a black hole. For a few moments, all I could see was pure darkness. My ears, however, relished in the loud, hard rock blasting forth from the band before me. With elements of noise rock entered into the mix as well, the whole effect was rather awesome. When my eyes finally adjusted to the light, I took a good look at the Ohio-based group that called themselves Hot Cha Cha. Wow, three out the four members were female, including the wild lead singer/screamer! It's so refreshing to see women rocking this tune style. I've gotta say I like this band!

Back outside, Atlanta's upbeat 5-piece Turf War gave us a taste of their fun rock sound. With a slight bit of a nineties feel to them, their tunes resonated with the crowd, even drawing kids from outside the venue to watch them from above in the Farm 255 courtyard. These guys definitely had some personality too! When one guitarist leaned too close to the other, the second pretended to kiss him, adding a touch of humor to their set. And I can't forget to mention the drummer's awesome musical note tattoo! Cool band, way cool show.
