I Was Totally Destroying It, Medications, Deleted Scenes

When: Wed., July 21, 9 p.m. 2010

Mention of Washington, D.C., in the context of a rock music write-up necessarily conjures visions of the District's most important indie export, Dischord Records. Medications is indeed a member of that storied roster. But lest visions of Fugazi dance 'round your head, factor in the jittery, brittle sweetness the band injects into its rock-candy pop. Hooks lift like a Ferris Wheel and return as gracefully. Their sound is a complement to the moody, keys-fueled indie pop of the non-Dischord band Deleted Scenes, who rely on subtle shifts in texture and melodies stretched like silly putty. I Was Totally Destroying It headlines with a dynamic pop uppercut. —Bryan Reed

Price: $5
