I Was Totally Destroying It, The Bakers, J Kutchma, Jack the Radio 

When: Thu., Feb. 17, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $5

While IWTDI subscribes to the power pop formula in terms of energy and hook density, they place greater emphasis on texture then more traditional adherents. They suggest a synthesis of '80s exemplars Modern English and The Plimsouls—creamy synths jostle against distortion-drenched guitars while the punchy rhythms drive the songs, buttressing their power. Over their three full-length releases, their arrangements have grown curvier and less straightforward, but the band's secret weapon remains the contrasting vocals of Rachel Hirsh and John Booker. Their pretty and brash styles (when not harmonizing with each other) bring out different colors in the music. —Chris Parker
