Tussle wasn't the only band to play that night. San Francisco's The Cold War played its left wing brand of noise rock to the audience. Singer Tamera Ferro was all over the place, belting out the vocals while entertaining the crowd with her stage presence. The band played a very short set, with the acoustics at The Hotel Utah not exactly being cooperative to its type of music. Regardless, the band was very entertaining and may have prompted some people in attendance to start a Communist revolution.

3. The Cold War (and their hot dance moves), Hemlock Tavern
Tamera Ferro sounds a little like Karen O. But the Cold War, fueled by political rage and fractured guitars, goes to a darker place than the Yeah Yeah Yeahs would ever dare.
