It’s nice to be graced by enthusiastic, talented musicians from time to time. And every member of the band I Was Totally Destroying It fits that description: enthusiastic and talented.

What a job I have to be able to sit and objectively hear the opinions of such levelheaded artists. They touched on everything from why they love what they do to how they view the range of music in the Triangle and its progression over the last 15 years.

I encountered I Was Totally Destroying It at the local beer local band night at Tir Na Nog in Raleigh. About 30 seconds into their set, I knew I had to talk to them after the show. I’m glad I did, and as it turns out they love hearing from the audience (Even if you just talk about the silly conversation that spawned their unique name). They just like everyone to say hi.

Check these guys out, their MySpace site has a ton of songs on it. They are about to put out a new EP (vinyl with a digital download, and only 250 copies)… and then a new CD in October with their new label Greyday Records. But don’t forget to give their first CD a good listen! I was amazed to find out they produced it themselves with just a little help from a local studio. Well Done!
