Charlie and the Chocolate Factory
If you're one of the 14 people in Cleveland who haven't seen Fatkid Dodgeball (that's two words, folks) yet, then you don't know that the Columbus-based rock band has a growing legion of screaming female fans -- and that's the kind of endorsement you can't fake. And if you need musical details, the band is a study in contrasts: acoustic riffing and electric leads, vocal harmonies and pop-punk energy, and gentle melody over hard-hitting beats.
