Whiskey Business returns to Red Space on Friday, November 9 - Limited Tickets Available Here!


With Beaten Awake and Jakeway. Saturday, January 5, at the Grog Shop, Cleveland Heights.

When Cleveland's HotChaCha put word out that it was looking for a bass player early last year, guitarist Mandy Aramouni, singer Jovana Batkovic, and drummer Lisa Paulovcin set one condition: no boys. After seeing the band perform live, Heather Gmucs immediately signed up.

These days, HotChaCha's stage shows exude the sort of hopped-up madness usually associated with a cooler filled with energy drinks and a backpack stuffed with candy bars. It's positively intense up there. The group recently hooked up with local label Exit Stencil and is now working on an EP that includes some help from the Slide Machine's Mark Himmel. The girls are also planning an upcoming vinyl-only release. Fitting for a group that makes frosty indie pop sound so groovy and nostalgic. Expect to hear plenty of new songs at HotChaCha's show this week.
