I Was Totally Destroying It, Jessia Long & the New Kind, Minor Stars 

When: Fri., Dec. 16, 9 p.m. 2011
Price: $5

If you're looking for an entry point into local music, Friday offers three solid options. I Was Totally Destroying It's catchy and cathartic pop-rock is one of the area's most reliable spark plugs; grandiose maybe before their time, they've been playing a rash of full-album shows lately. This time, at least, you get their best: 2009's Horror Vacui cascades down chugging riffs that crash into shout-along choruses that dig deep into the breakup of coupled singers John Booker and Rachel Hirsch. Drummer James Hepler adds proper heft, as Hirsch and Booker harmonize energetically, backing each others' insults with masochistic glee. Tonight, they'll play the whole thing. With Jessica Long & the New Kind and Minor Stars. —Jordan Lawrence
