Borrowing from the esthetic sounds of Kim Gordon, Sleater Kinney, and Karen O, Cleveland-based band Hot Cha Cha create a fun punk/new wave formula that is sure to get hips shaking. Their exploding vagina drawings on their leotards is one of many onstage antics that make this band have an energizing performance. They will be playing at the Asbury Lanes on Oct. 2 in Asbury Park, NJ, at 9 p.m. Ages 18 and up. exitstencil.org/hotchacha.php.
