I Was Totally Destroying It, Ethnographers 

When: Thu., Nov. 17, 10 p.m. 2011
Price: Free

For the second in a series of album-spanning shows, Durham power pop maestros I Was Totally Destroying It perform 2008 and 2009 EPs "Done Waiting" and "The Beached Margin" in their entirety. Darker than the debut's chirpy pop-punk, the two discs were a great leap in IWTDI's songwriting maturity, in both arrangements and lyrical content. Occasionally flirting with emo epithets and reminiscent of a more aggressive Eisley, seven-piece Greenville outfit The Ethnographers fits nicely into the opening slot. As with IWTDI, its dramatic, spunky pop-rock is a treasure trove of both ebullient choruses and boy/girl harmonies, traded among the band's multiple vocalists. —Spencer Griffith
