Arts & Entertainment Local bands to throw down

Several local musicians are scheduled to perform in a show that might just “melt your face” – in the best way possible – say organizers.

Western North Carolina-based bands Total War, The Unawarewulves and Crow vs. Hawk will take the stage with their signature sounds at the Carl Slagle Memorial Building on March 19. A fourth act to be determined is slated for the event.


Total War, with members from Asheville and Sylva, is a band whose sound can best be described as heavy rock. The band has performed throughout the region and is well known in Sylva for its distinct sound.

The Unawarewulves, of Franklin, describes its sound as “jazzy dance rock,” as seen in the photo above. A powerhouse of styles including rock, ska, jazz and progressive, the Unawarewulves have earned their chops in the local music scene.

It is hard to narrow down the genre of the third band, Crow vs. Hawk. The Franklin-based group improvises much of their sound and describes it as if “Ween and Sonic Youth had a baby, that baby had babies with a baby whose parents were Suicide and The Melvins...That baby had babies with Ornette Coleman and Brian Eno's baby...and so on.”

Together, along with the fourth mystery band, the event brings a myriad of different musical tastes to the table. The show begins at 7 p.m., with a $5 cover charge.
