FYBO Scooter Rally with Straight 8s, Blood Red River (Showroom) 

When: Sat., Jan. 14, 9 p.m. 2012
Price: $8

Formed in the mid-'90s, Durham's Incriminators Scooter Club is a coalition of aficionados of vintage motor-scooters; this is their 12th annual Freeze Your Balls Off Scooter Rally. Given the club's retro predilections, the evening's musical offerings are fittingly vintage. Rockabilly trio The Straight 8s swing between swampy psychobilly haunts and chrome-accented diner-pop jaunts. Blood Red River's punk-scorched surf and dark exotica make for an easy but hardly redundant complement. And, as this is, after all, the Incriminators' party, it's been recommended that you "Come by scooter—leave by taxi."—Bryan C. Reed
